    If he is not going to give you something I would go to see another doctor.  You may have a case of prostatitis.  It ca affect the whole area.   And going to the bathroom after you masturbating is normal.  It is the body's way of cleaning the pipes.  Try another doctor.  Ken

      I don't have any other pain because the feeling to urinate all the time in my head. It's doesn't burn to pee in fact I get relief when I do. I thought 💭 prostatitis was pain in rectum, between balls and rectum and pelvic pain. I am seeing a urologist tomorrow to get results from ultrasound so will ask about rectal exam then.

    You need to have your Prostate checked to see if it is abnormally large. I haven't seen all the symptoms you describe as a result of this nor the cause. However, some are very definitely related to an increase in it. You need to ask for it to be checked. The usual starting point is a digital rectal examination, crude, but a starting point. It might be worth having your PSE checked, another crude measure but again a starting point. The results of those will lead to a clearer direction to a proper diagnosis.

      PSE ? Do your mean a camera 📷 in the penis as I agree this would be worth while though I have thought this could cause scarring of the urethrea. I am getting results of ultrasound on kidney, bladder etc tomorrow and am assuming a prostate exam and camera 📷 up the pee hole 🕳? while be the next steps.

    Have you checked with your urologist about the use of a catheter.  That might relieve the pressure.

    Have you tried pushing a small quantity of 1% hydrocortisone cream down the hole at the end?  Works for me when it happens

    Quick Update - Renal Tract Ultrasound came back clear, no hydronephrosis, scarring or calculus formation. An 8mm exophytic cyst is noted on the right mid pole. Bladder contours are normal, no mucosal lesions visible and prostate is not enlarged measuring at 16.6cc in volume. Possible stricture in urethra so booked cystoscopy for the 28th. He will fix anything up there if required, talked about widening the urethra. Pain is still solely in the head of the penis, no burning on urination just some discomfort at the tip and in the urethra in the head (not shaft) after urinating at times. Has given alpha blockers in the meantime.
