do i have bladder cancer?

Its been about 10 weeks and I'm still having pains around the bottom of my bladder (suprapubic area?). The pains are located at what is most likely to be the urethra or the prostate. During the day it would be constantly uncomfortable, and sometimes there would be a burning sensation or sharp pains in the area. I also get twitches/spasms in the area but rarely.

In about the 4th week I went to see a doctor and was treated for a possible UTI after a urine test. They gave me antibiotics to take for a week.

After the antibiotics, there was no pain or burning sensation when I passed urine, but the prostate area is still very uncomfortable. The doctor then gave me another urine test and nothing wrong was detected. A few days after this I was given anti inflammatory pills to be taken for a week. I've finished these pills now and the uncomfortable feeling and pain is still here.

Over the past few weeks I've been eating more fruit and veg, and I only drink warm water or clear soups. I've avoided all junk food, alcohol and seafood. I've not left my house for a month so I've been emptying my bladder regularly.

I'm really concerned now as it has been over 2 months with no improvement in the discomfort of my bladder. I'm becoming more and more depressed and I feel weak.

I'm not sexually active, my BMI is normal, and I'm 20/male.
What is it that I might have? prostate cancer? bladder cancer? What do I do to get better? Why did the pain start?
