There can be several causes.  The first would be infection.  Either urethritis or prostatitis can cause the symptoms.  A urinalysis as well as tests for STDs should be considered.  Prostatitis can be evaluated via a digital rectal exam as well as sending off the prostatitic fluid for analysis and culture.  You can also consider a transrectal ultrasound to evaluate the structure of the prostate as well as infection.

Another cause would be anatomical abnormalities - such as a urethral stricture or polyp.  You can consider a cystoscopy to evaluate the anatomy.

You may want to discuss these options with your personal urologist.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
