Hi I have really bad burning sensation and uncomfortability

Customer Question

Hi I have really bad burning sensation and uncomfortability inside the top tip of my penis, this has been going on for couple years now and been to the nhs doctor and referred to theri urology but all i keep doing is the same urine, blood and sti checks. nothing seems to be working and the burning sensation is constant.

I get bad pain when urinating and also during ejaculation during sex. I am almost at the verge of giving up. Any crucial advice will be generous at this point. thanks in advance.

a cystoscopy is a procedure where a urologist looks inside of your penis and bladder with a thin flexible camera.

this could find a tear in your urethra causing the burning.
