A urinary tract infection, or UTI, is an extremely uncomfortable infection that impacts the very system for which it is named. While various parts of the tract can be impacted, the most common area of infection is the bladder.2‘Urinary Tract Infection.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 27 August 2019, www.cdc.gov/antibiotic-use/community/for-patients/common-illnesses/uti.html. Because the symptoms mimic those of other conditions, people sometimes allow the condition to linger untreated, which can have long-term health impacts.

The way that a UTI manifests in men differs from women because of the biological differences in genitalia and internal systems. Knowledge of specific UTI symptoms in men can result in a positive health outcome.

1. Pain While Urinating

Pain while urinating is one of the most common symptoms of a UTI in men. Among the most common mistakes some men make when they feel this pain is attempting to stop the stream of urine to ward off the discomfort.

The best thing to do under these circumstances is to finish urinating, and then see a doctor as soon as possible. Treatment brings the infection under control and reduces the pain significantly. Left untreated, a UTI can progress to a much more serious health condition.
