I have a large hard marble size ball feeling around my urethra (I think) no pain but it does feel like I'm getting UTI.. but I've had UTI before never with ball. I don't have insurance and wondering what it could be.

I have a large hard marble size ball feeling around my urethra (I think) no pain but it does feel like I'm getting UTI.. but I've had UTI before never with ball. I don't have insurance and wondering what it could be.

But by what you described, that marble-like ball could represent the cyst of so-called Skene's gland, which equates male's prostate and may be infected.

We have a new pool, it was kinda dirty with some bugs and half an hour after getting out I got discomfort around clit/urethra, could I have UTI?

Probably not, but...: It's probably not the pool water. Perhaps a slight possibility if the pool had been over treated with chlorine or other chemicals because of being dirty.
