Testing for infection should be considered.  Urine tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia, as well as a rectal exam to palpate the prostate can be considered.  

If infection has been ruled out, a cystoscopy can be considered to evaluate for urethral strictures or polyps.

These options can be discussed with your urologist.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
