Burning feeling in urethra and anus when I defecate.

Patient

Q: Hello. Im having a bit of an issue where sometimes when I defecate my urethra burns, and it seems the muscles inside my anus burn for a while as well. I took a urine test recently and they told me I didnt have a UTI. Im 19, but im worried it might be my prostate.

Symptoms:  Burning feeling in urethra, burning feeling in anus
Doctor

A:   Prostate issues are unlikely to bother you at this age. Infection of the food pipe may produce similar symptoms. Sometimes, certain kinds of worms may also irritate the genital area. Consulting your family physician should help.
