In medicine, specifically urology, dysuria refers to painful urination.[1][2]

Difficult urination is also sometimes, but rarely, described as dysuria.[3]

It is one of a constellation of irritative bladder symptoms, which includes urinary frequency and haematuria.

Differential diagnosis[edit]

This is typically described to be a burning or stinging sensation. It is most often a result of a urinary tract infection. It may also be due to an STD, bladder stones, bladder tumours, and virtually any condition of the prostate. It can also occur as a side effect of anticholinergic medication used for Parkinson's disease.

Dysuria causes can be split into four categories. These include a large number of conditions which may or may not be included in this list.

Urinary Tract

Genital

Drugs and Irritants

Other

Treatment[edit]

Treatment of Dysuria depends on its cause.
