Blood in urine, do men get UTI also? I am seeing blood in my urine and feeling pressure only when i go urinate. The only symptoms i had before i started seeing blood yesterday was discharge of a thick substance showing up on my underware for about a week.

In brief: Absolutely

Men can definitely get utis.
Symptoms of blood in the urine also require evaluation to rule out diagnoses other than UTI including stones and tumors of the urinary tract. Start by seeing your urologist and getting a urinalysis and urine culture. And a hematuria (blood in urine) workup if blood confirmed in urine. You urologist will direct the diagnosis and treatment following these tests.

In brief: Yes,

Yes, men are succeptible to urinary tract infections (uti).
The urethra and bladder are sterile environments. And if any bacteria/fungus/virus/foreign substance is introduced into the urethra, an infection can occur. Also, the discharge you are seeing can indicate an std or other infection. Blood in urine could occur as a result of trauma or a medical condition. Throughout the genitilia, there are many areas and blood vessels that could be broken, leading to blood in the urine or semen. Items that could cause trauma and blood in the urine could be aggressive sex or masterbation, interrupted sex, kidney stones, prostatitis or a procedural biopsy on the testicles/kidney/bladder. Medical conditions that can cause blood in the urine include: side effects of blood thinners, stds such as chlamydia/genital herpes/warts, prostate cancer or bladder cancer. Since this is an ongoing condition for your boyfriend, it is suggested that he see his doctor to determine what the cause is. If there is an infection or trauma going on, it is important to get it assessed.
