Patient :My boyfriend went to the bathroom this morning and had a slight pain with urination and noticed dried blood on the tip of his penis. He's 17 and plays sports and works out a lot. What could be the cause?
Symptoms: Pain when urinating, dried blood at the tip
The commonest cause of pain during urination and dried blood at the tip is passage of the urinary stone through the urethra causing pain and bleeding a part of which gets dried up .
Another reason can be just urethritis.
Ask him the following:
Send the urine sample for culture, sensitivity, routine and microscopy.
Ultrasonography of the abdomen and pelvis particularly for urogenital system, to find the presence of infection and/or stones.
Take plenty of oral fluid.
No sex or masturbation till cured.
I hope this answer helps him.
