Dysuria refers to difficult urination.[1][2] Painful urination is also sometimes, but rarely, described as dysuria.[3]

It is one of a constellation of irritative bladder symptoms (also sometimes referred to as lower urinary tract symptoms), which includes nocturia and urinary frequency.

Differential diagnosis

This is typically described to be a burning or stinging sensation. It is most often a result of a urinary tract infection. It may also be due to an STD, bladder stones, bladder tumors, and virtually any condition of the prostate. It can also occur as a side effect of anticholinergic medication used for Parkinson's disease.

Dysuria causes can be split into four categories. These include many conditions which may or may not be included in this list.
