Hi We can continue after this if you'd like but this may not be anything too serious. That said, you do need to get it checked out. It can be an indication of a prostate gland infection but it also might signal either testicular or prostate cancer. Most of the time no real cause is found but you need a testicular and prostate exam and an ultrasound of your scrotum
