Avatar n tn Currently, I have a mild burning in my urethra that comes and goes throughout the day. Diet changes, exercise, sitting, standing, sex, do not seem to effect the burning that I feel daily. Frequency seems to be under control. I have done much research regarding prostatitis. My symptoms just don't seem to match up. The only thing I have wrong with me (that has been diagnosed) is a degenerative disk condition that doesn't even bother me (pain wise). I have no idea what to do from here.
Avatar n tn About 2 weeks ago I started to experienced a stinging sensation after urinating, lasting about 10-20 seconds each time. In addition, my urethra would become bright red and somewhat 'swollen' at times, maybe once a week, going on for months. I saw a doctor and she could see some irritation of the urethra. They tested me for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and a Urinalysis. All were negative and I was given yeast infection cream to relieve any irritation.
Avatar n tn There is no pain or burning, just irritation in the urethra. I have been with the same partner for over fifteen years and have not been with anyone else. The problem started several months ago and I don't how the irritation came about all of suddenly. I have never had this problem before and this is all new to me. My spouse had a UTI about the same time my irritation started. First question, can a UTI be transferred from one partner to another partner?
Avatar n tn 1. Received unprotected oral from 2 sex workers. Protected vaginal. Possible skin-skin contact outside the condom during sex. 2. One of them did extensive "rimming" on me (licking anus) and then returned to giving fellatio after that. Both girls say they have no history of cold sores, STD's, or genital herpes, and were very adimant about it. 3. 5 days after exposure, tingling on underside of right testicle.
Avatar n tn Male 27. In good overall health. Meds: Propecia – now once every other day. Been on it for four years. Stopped taking it every day about three months ago. Symptoms: near constant need to pee. Irritation of urethra and glans after peeing. Pain if I urinate too soon after ejaculating. Irritation is worst in middle of night. symptoms since last may. No discharge, no leakage. No pain during sex, but irritation after. Longer-lasting irritation if I have sex a few times in a short span.
Avatar f tn Hello, The bump under the urethra can be a bartholin cyst of vagina. There are glands in the vaginal lips called Bartholin’s glands. These can become painful and swollen, and an abscess can form. This often causes blockage in the main duct from the gland, and a cyst develops. This is felt as a hard swelling. In such cases, antibiotics may be helpful, or surgical treatment might be required.
Avatar f tn I was treated with Noroxin for an infection about a week and a half ago and this morning when I urinated it was like a stabbing pain in my urethra. I also have a lump on the left side beside my urethra. The lump does not hurt but I feel almost like it's swollen ( my urethra). What could this be. I am 47 yr old white female who has had frequent UTI's and this is new to me. I have never seen this before and I am concerned..
Avatar n tn Intense tingling sensation in urethra showed up and lasted until 9/9/03 when I was given a single dose of Zithromax. Chlymidia, Gon, Syph, Herp all came back negative. 9/9/03: Felt 100% fine again 9/14/03: Had sex with wife - note that she has shown no symtoms at all thru 10/24/03 9/15/03: Tingling sensation came back in a mild form and last until 9/25/03. No where near as intense as it was before the Zithromax. 9/19/03: 2nd doctor visit, diagnosed with oral Thrush and put on Diflucan.
Avatar m tn Your son either has a urinary tract infection or an ulcer or infection of urethra in the penis or an ulcer at the tip of penis. When the urine touches an ulcer it burns. UTI is less unlikely as there was no fever and the symptoms have abated. A routine urine examination should be done. You say that the climate is hot and humid and the child has developed a painful lump in groin. This could be a swollen lymph node or a folliculitis (hair follicle infection) or an abscess.
Avatar m tn because there was some blood the urologist set up a cystoscopy to take a look but hit a stricture in my urethra and couldn't get the scope through. he immediately set me up for a DVIU to repair the stricture, which will take place in a few weeks. questions: 1) should i ask for any more testing prior to this procedure (e.g., urethrogram to show the length & location of the stricture, or is it standard to order the DVIU without it?
Avatar m tn I've been taking the Clindamycin 3x a day for the last 3 days (Doc prescribed it to have it around in case the thing came back, well it did) This entire time I've had sporadic sensations in my urethra, about 1/4 inch in from the tip along with the irritated meatus. Also at times I have an odd "pain" that I feel on the inside of my left thigh. Lower back pain. Odd pain sensations in my perineal area. Odd "muscle" twinges in my abdomen.
Avatar n tn i have this warm burning feeling in my scrotum and anus off and on and the tip of my penis feels like it someone is pinching it also from day to day the area between the scrotum and the anus feels really tight almost like a knot.
Avatar m tn Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, I think your tampon had grown some bacteria in it since it might of been in there for a while. The bacteria got into your boyfriends urethra. He got a urinary tract infection from it.
Avatar n tn It can be due to perineal trauma like during cycling, urethral trauma, urtehritis, prostate infections, gonorrhea, perianal abscess, anal fissure or fistula, bladder infections or any obstruction in the urethra. A detailed examination by a urologist along with a comprehensive profile of investigations is needed. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn However 14 days of this antibiotic have not cleared up the infection and the symptoms persist (a general dull ache in the urethra which seems to be centered on the last inch or so which feels like an inflamation). During this time I have experienced no other symptoms i.e., no lesions, blisters, bumps, redness, itching or fever. I am assuming I have some sort of non specific urethitis and would much appreciate any advice on my next course of action as I am now, getting anxious.
Avatar n tn I started out several weeks ago with pain on the tip of my penis, and in my urethra but those have disappeared. I asked him what could cause a abscess and his reply was lack of sex. Is this true or was he joking? Could this also possibly be prostate cancer? Any answers would be appreciated.....
Avatar n tn The next several times we had sex, I had rapid premature ejaculation that was also painful. Since then, I have had a fairly constant sensation in my frenelum on the underside of my penis. It seems to get worse with Kegel style PC flexing and when I masturbate or have sex vigorously (putting pressure on my urethra.
Avatar n tn Hi. About a year ago while I was living in Africa I started to feel a burning in my urethra. At first I would feel an itching or a sensation like something was moving in my urethra. When I would try to itch it or put pressure on it, the tingling or itching would go away for about 15 seconds only to be replaced by a slowly intensifying burning. The burning would last anywhere from a few seconds to over a minute and then fade away.
Avatar n tn At that time doc did prostate milkings, scope up my urethra but couldn't come up with an explanation and I was told to just live with it. The new urologist said my prostate was normal and my epidytimus were no longer tender, no explanation for pain. He said urination issues maybe due to bladder hood thickness. I was in hottub Sunday and suddenly felt a mild muscle strain going across my entire abdomen and pelvis down to either side of my testicles.
Avatar m tn Licking at the anus can be due to a anal gland impaction or abscess, parasites, or even an undiagnosed urinary tract infection since the urethra and anus are in fairly close proximity anatomically in the cat. Please bring your cat to the vet for an exam. Bring a fresh fecal sample and a fresh urine sample, if possible. If it is an anal gland impaction, expressing the anal glands will relieve the problem. Parasites are usually easily treated with the appropriate anti-parasitic medication.
Avatar m tn Fever, rigors, rash etc. 2 days after my risk, wife and I have relations. Next day I had a little itch/feeling in my urethra. This prompted all the anxiety and testing. Came back clean so I went on with life. I have had a continuous irritation at my meatus. Doc looked and wasnt concerned. It doesn't hurt but its there My abscess has come to a head again. Ive been, for the last 2 weeks, having some pain/sensaions on the inside of my left thigh.
Avatar m tn Lymph node was swollen on right groin near the abscess, constant pain in the back of the head in neck, maybe a gland there. But not really flu symptoms I would say, mild fever especially. Anyway i know the only answer will come when I get tested. But it is a little confusing when so many symptoms of an anal abscess are the same as seroconversion, also now that the abscess has cleared up and the night fevers continue, it is deeply worrying. Just praying and I'm not usually a religious person.
Avatar n tn After the stone leaves the bladder, significant discomfort can be experienced in the urethra (the tube that passes through the penis out of the body). If your problem is located directly above the penis and is a round and tender nodule there are a couple possibilities: infected hair follicle, cyst, abscess. If your problem is located above the penis on either side, this could represent lymph node swelling and inflammation (called lymphadenitis). How large is the "painful lump"?
Avatar n tn My main problems are the frequent urges to urinate, weak flow when I do urinate, feeling like I haven't completely emptied my bladder, constipation, pain in my urethra, pain in my rectum/prostate, fever/headache, waking up frequently to urniate, cloudy urine. Are they missing something here? Do I have a bladder/UTI infection as well? What tests should I have done? I'm getting depressed as this keeps me from doing things I normally do (kickboxing, going out with my wife, etc...).
Avatar n tn If yes, considering i'm 7 weeks into this story, can it be that a single shot is not enough because there is already a lot of abscess and bacteria in the bladder, it's lining the urethra and has become compacted etc.? Assuming the bacteria is dead how do I get rid of just a lot of abscess? As the tests were negative, can the infection be the cause of semen in the bladder (I had that once, doxy fixed it)? What is my recourse if that is the case?
Avatar n tn urethral smear and urinalysis performed again it came back negative, but still had pain in meatus and urethra intermittently. doc then gave me metronidazole for 1 week plus 1 tab of flucanozole. no relief of irritation. went back to doc's office and he gave me a prostate massage after taken a urine sample. the prostate massage (smear)came back negative. the doc can't seem to figure out what the problem is. i was also given bactrim 1 wk. on a 1-10 scale my pain is 3 on average.
Avatar m tn Hi there, The symptoms that you describe are seen in penile fracture. Penile fracture is the traumatic rupture of the corpus cavernosum. Traumatic rupture of the penis is relatively uncommon and is considered a urologic emergency. Sudden blunt trauma or abrupt lateral bending of the penis in an erect state can break the markedly thinned and stiff tunica albuginea, resulting in a fractured penis. One or both corpora may be involved, and concomitant injury to the penile urethra may occur.
