Usually symptoms.: Infections of the urinary tract usually present with symptoms such as burning & pain with urination, blood, urgency, frequency, & occasionally, fever. If you have these symptoms, a urinalysis & culture should be performed to confirm the presence of infection. Some infections (chlamydia) may be silent, & need specific testing. If you have concerns, see your physician for evaluation.

Urologist: Get an evaluation by a urologist. Chances are a previous doctor like a pediatrician has already seen the problem and decided it was okay.

Is a tear near the urethra something to worry about? What can you do to solve this problem?

Nope: A peri-urethral tear should heal well if allowed to. If stitches were needed, your doc would have used dissolvable sutures so don't pull or rub these. Your doc would also make sure your sutures don't distort or pull the urethra to one side. Rinse after voids, don't wipe. This area usually heals very nicely. Take care.

Hard to say: This is a very broad question. Chances are it isn't anything to worry about. However, the only way to know for sure would be to visit your dermatologist, urologist or gynecologist to get a diagnosis and put your mind at ease.
