or inflammation of your prostate?

to have inflammation of the prostate and prostatitis.

Dr. David :

and it can cause your PSA levels to be elevated temporarily.

Dr. David :

you can try to drink some cranberry juice and water and see if it helps.

but you have had the symptom for 2 weeks already.

so most likely you will need something else besides just drinking lots of water.

JACUSTOMER-kggrk8k1- :

like a course of antibiotics.

it is illegal for online doctors to give out prescriptions to clients we can't see and can't examine

does this make sense?

JACUSTOMER-kggrk8k1- :

ok so I don't have to worry

you don't have to worry.

Dr. David :

but you should see your doctor about antibiotics.
