Burning Urination in Male

Published at : 10-07-2019 View : 19869

  Burning urination is a common symptom with many causes, several of which are related to bacterial infection. Men may experience painful urination due to prostatitis. This condition is the inflammation of the prostate gland. It’s a primary cause of urinary burning, stinging, and discomfort.

About Burning Urination

  Dysuria is the sensation of pain or burning on urination. In males, this sensation is usually felt in the distal urethra during voiding and resolves shortly after micturition. The timing of the discomfort can often predict its location in the urinary tract. Pain at the start of urination usually indicates a urethral source of inflammation. More severe pain occurring over the suprapubic area on completion of urination suggests inflammation of the bladder. Most men who experience new problems with painful or frequent urination should see their doctor. This guide is intended to provide helpful information while you are awaiting further evaluation, or can add to what you may have already learned after your visit with a doctor.
