Penile discharge: Fluid passed through the urethra that is not urine or semen. In most cases penile discharge is a symptom of an infectious process in the urethra, termed urethritis. It can vary in consistency and color and requires evaluation by a medical professional to correctly arrive at a diagnosis and proper treatment. Common organisms that cause penile discharge are n. Gonorrhoeae and c. Trachomatis.
