Can a single person suffer from urethritis (std)? My urologist told me this in my case?

Can a single person suffer from urethritis (std)? My urologist told me this in my case?

Proabably yes...: Remember: despite medical advance, all medical care today is still based on indirect evidence resulting from continual collection and analysis of available experience. Furthermore, we're constantly battling an invisible war against all bacteria, virus, and fungus inside or outside of our body, and we survive if our defense ability is strong enough; many persons around are std-carriers.

What are HIV & AIDS? What's the difference? Why is it the worst disease/STD according to majority of doctors? Are they treatable? P.S:I'm not infected

What are HIV & AIDS? What's the difference? Why is it the worst disease/STD according to majority of doctors? Are they treatable? P.S:I'm not infected

Virus versus disease: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus. The advanced form of HIV infection is acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). The term AIDS isn't used much anymore, mostly just called HIV infection. It's the worst STD because unlike all others, it is usually fatal if untreated. Treatment is very effective to both prolong life and prevent transmission to partners. Search online for more info. ...Read more

If you want to get tested for HIV and other STDs. Which would give you more knowledgable answers Urologist or Infectous Disease Doctor or Both?

A primary care doc: Screening for sexually transmitted diseases is a very common procedure for all primary care physicians, such as a family physician or internist.

Does a URINALYSIS, AUTO, W/O SCOPE test for STDs? I went to a Urologist for possible epididymitis after on Doxy. Doc said it tested normal

Sort of: A urinalysis is a good screening tool for detecting certain infections by being positive for markers of inflammation (blood cells), but cannot specify without a culture or a specific additional test called a PCR for Chlaymdia and gonorrhea. Most other STD's are screen for by blood test or swabs with cultures (HIV, HSV for example). ...Read more

I have had slightly red tip of penis, been to urologist no bacteria or std found, what could this be? It seems to get red or burn.

I have had slightly red tip of penis, been to urologist no bacteria or std found, what could this be? It seems to get red or burn.

Variable: Talk to your doctor about treatment for a yeast infection or checking for a UTI. Balanitis can sometimes be caused by a skin disease, such as psoriasis. On the glans, it looks red and shiny. You may need a steroid cream. Also, check your soaps and shower gels. Could be an allergy. Same with latex condoms. ...Read more

4 weeks ago did frottage w/my masseuse. Got scared thinking I have HIV/STD. Per my PCP Internist & Urologist, I shouldn't be obsessing bout it. Should I?

4 weeks ago did frottage w/my masseuse. Got scared thinking I have HIV/STD. Per my PCP Internist & Urologist, I shouldn't be obsessing bout it. Should I?

Get Tested: If you were exposed to another person's body fluids, there is a chance of infection. Most STDs and HIV require the body fluid to come into contact with mucous membranes (urethra, mouth, eye, rectum) or an open wound. Syphilis and Herpes can affect the skin directly. Rather than obsess, get tested on a regular basis. Ask your partners to get tested regularly, too. ...Read more

Had small lesion on penis shaft. Urologist removed. (Not std, not cancerous) After, the skin turned white. 6 mo later, still white. Scar tissue? Ok?

Depigmented: To call it a scar I would need to see its characteristics relative to surrounding tissue. It could be that or the tissue may not have had time to generate the normal skin pigment for the area, which can take years. I wouldn't loose any sleep over it. ...Read more

SEVERE UTI-like symptoms for 2 yrs. Gyno: UTIs, STDs, STIs, & infections test neg. A lot of blood in urine. Urologist said everything is normal. How?!

SEVERE UTI-like symptoms for 2 yrs. Gyno: UTIs, STDs, STIs, & infections test neg. A lot of blood in urine. Urologist said everything is normal. How?!

Seek a second input: Hematuria is not normal. Your symptoms suggest the probability of a stone and or passing a stone. Would suggest getting an imaging if not done. Further more a full urine test would help. A bladder stone can cause UTI like symptoms. In rare cases interstitial cystitis can present like this but rare. Getting a kidney doctor to work up is the next best step. Best of luck hope you feel better. ...Read more
