Hi, Doctor.

A few days ago, I had this trouble in peeing. I felt some hints of pain. They’re tolerable though. At first I thought it was a symptom of UTI, since I admit that I drink lots of water but I’m quite lazy to urinate. Then yesterday, I noticed that there was a tiny lump on my private area (on the tip). I’m not so sure if it was a wound or what. But it still felt painful, plus there was this sting when I feel like I need to pee. I have no fever and the color of my urine is pretty normal. How can I get rid of the pain? For your advice please.

Thank you.



could you help me out with a few more details about your complaints like (A)whether you feel a sense of incomplete emptying of your bladder or an urge to pee frequently even if you have passed urine,(B) whether you have noticed any blood while passing urine,(C)Low back pain or pain in the lower abdomen,(D) have you suffered from any recent injury to the private parts.

If possible please get back with a photo of that part where you have felt the swelling is.The swelling that you have felt could be due to urethral carbuncle which is a swelling near the urethra ,and the painful micturition could be that added with a UTI as you might have rightly assumed . So please do an urgent urine test as mentioned below and meanwhile take the following medicines for pain relief till you follow up with more details.

Investigations to be done:

Urine for routine and microscopic investigations.with CULTURE SENSITIVITY TEST,

Probable diagnosis:


Treatment plan:

Tab.Paracetamol (500 mg) 1 tab after meals sos

Preventive measures:

Drink plenty of water and oral fluids and avoid holding urine....pee every hour.
