Urethral discomfort.: The urethra is the tube that allows urine to exit the bladder and out the body. In men, it is also the passage through which semen travels. Pain in this structure is most commonly due to infections (stds or utis). It is often burning in character and often related to urination. Inflammation, stones, strictures, and bladder problems can also cause this bothersome symptom.
