Prostatitis vs Prostate Cancer

I'm a 25 year old male and I've been having a recurrent prostate pain for maybe up to a year...I've only noticed it for 6-9 months. Symptoms are prostate pain usually only after drinking alcohol, frequent masturbation, or eating really spicy foods. I'd say it acts up a 3-7 times a month max and pain isn't there most of the time. During the time when the pain is there I also feel like I have to urinate sometimes when I really don't need to go.(not much comes out) Also, after urinating it seems like it drips a bit more than it used to when I was younger. I don't have a weak stream or blood or anything like that and when its not acting up my urinating is normal (Only feel like I have to go when I really do) My question is what are the chances this is prostate cancer? I know its extremely rare but I just read something on the internet about a 25 year old diagnosed with prostate cancer so that makes it seem like its not impossible. I know I should be concerned and see someone which I will but how worried should I be about prostate cancer specifically?
