Answer
Swatatnra:

Any confirmed UTI in a male is considered a "complicated UTI" and usually requires 10-14 days of antibiotics.  In addition, a review should be done to determine the source since men do not typically get UTIs.  We may find prostatitis, stones or other abnormalities that would predispose to infection.  An ultrasound is not considered detailed enough for this review.  I suggest you consult a urologist.
