Hi, I am asking for my husband, the last week or so he has

Customer Question

Hi,
I am asking for my husband, the last week or so he has had a pain at the base of his penis, where his penis joins his body, he says it almost feels as thou it hurts towards one testicle, there are no lumps that he can feel, the pain is a bit like a burning, jabbing pain that comes and goes very randomly through the day. It does not last very long he said that tonight there was some pain after he urinated, do you think this sounds like anything to worry about? 4 years ago he had a circumcision as he had phimosis, he doesn't really gave any other symptoms of a water infection either, I'm going to get him an appointment tomorow at the doctors but would like to know what you think.
Thanks jackie

He has a urinary tract infection or an infection of the testicle called orchitis

It will need antibiotics

His doctor should run a urine sample. Should be an easy fix
