Published at : 10-07-2019 View : 22365

  Painful Urination is a common complaint in men and a presenting symptom of various conditions. Most frequently, the presence of painful urination reflects a urogenital infection such as urethritis, prostatitis, epididymitis, or urinary tract infection. A condition affecting the bladder or nearby parts of the body can cause painful urination. Doctors may also refer to painful urination as dysuria.

About Painful Urination?

  Urination is the process of passing liquid waste from the body in the form of urine. For most people, the bladder holds urine until it is convenient for them to use the toilet. Urination is normally painless. Most people urinate four to eight times a day depending on fluid intake. Frequent urination is when a person needs to urinate much more often, experiences an urgent need to urinate or when a person urinates more frequently than is normal for him.

  Painful or frequent urination is a common problem, especially in older men. Urinary tract infections, kidney stones and prostate problems can all produce these symptoms. Frequent urination without pain also can be a side effect of certain medications, or a symptom of diabetes. Most men who experience new problems with painful or frequent urination should see their doctor.
