16 Years Old With Prostate Cancer...

hey.. um.. i'm a 16 year old boy who has some issues. For as long as i can remember, it has been hurting while I pee and ejaculate. I told my mom and dad about it about a year ago, and we had it checked. ( also, it often comes blood after i've peed) The doctors couldnt find any bacterias, nor blood in the urine. My blood level was fine, cus I work out about 3-4 times a week without problems. How come? what is this? I'm going to an urologist about 2 weeks from now to get more information.. but im terrified of getting the results, if it were to be something serious, like prostate cancer..

( Ps: if it helps.. I think theres something wrong with my prostate, cus when i try to touch it behind my ballsack it hurts.. and btw, the blood often comes after ive ejaculated, then peed afterwards.. from there on, there is about one week of pain and blood, before the blood disappears and i can ejaculate again. Its like an evil circle.. AND yes.. i ejaculate about once in a week..)

please help me..

Answer

You can breathe a sigh of relief as 16 year old men do not get prostate cancer. Your symptoms may be related to an infection and further cultures and evaluation are needed. Prostatitis, which is an infection/inflammation of the prostate is also not common in 16 year olds, unless there are some anatomical abnormalities that you have that have not yet been detected. An imaging study of your urinary tract, such as an ultrasound, will most likely be done by the urologist that you are seeing.
