Hi. While this may represent an infection like a prostate infection, it's more likely that this is not a serious problem but it should be evaluated with an exam and some studies. It could represent either testicular or prostate cancer. You need a urinalysis and a urethral culture as well as a prostate exam and an ultrasound of the testicles. If you were just to go to a chemist then doxycycline 100mg twice a day or Septra DS twice a day for two weeks would be my choices for appropriate treatment .
