Blood specks

32 yr old male, suffering from chronic prostatitis for about 2 months with sporadic symptoms, which itself is a pain.On antibiotics for about a month now - cipro and doxy, had an intiial dosage of cipro and flagyl initially for a week.

The worrying part is noticed a few instances of blood specks on the toilet paper/undergarments- a month or so before and again recently twice. No other symptoms apart from a bit of abdominal pain and low back pain and pain while sitting(which should be because of prostate).

the blood(brownish red) specks are more of oozes and not bleeding- yet worrying. Did check with my doc again who did a DRE and anoscopy but could mind anything abnormal, he said could be a mild fissure, which is painless. Not v sure.

Is a scopy reqd? Any other possibilities? Can it be anyway related to the prostate issue??
