19 yr old; enlarge prostate or prostatitis

My 19 yr old son saw our PCP today because of some symptoms he's been having (frequency, weak stream). The PCP put him on Flomax and sent off some blood and urine. From what I am reading it is more likely that he has prostatitis and should be on antibiotics. I wasn't at the appt. I know there was an exam and the PCP told my son his prostate was enlarged. Does that mean he does not have prostatitis? Does he have to wait until the blood work is back before we know for sure?

I don't know anything about this but worry he should be on antibiotics and not Flomax. He does have a follow up appt with a urologist, but it's not until February.

Thanks for any info!
