Dysuria refers to pain, discomfort, or burning sensation when urinating. This symptom is more common in women than in men. However, it is common in older men than young people.
Some of these are the common causes of painful urination:
- Urinary tract infections (UTI) caused due to several factors such as diabetes, advanced age, enlarged prostate, kidney stones, pregnancy and having a urinary catheter in place.
- Vaginal infection
- Sexually transmitted infections such as Genital herpes, Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.
