Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I am a 30-year-old male and I am not on any medication. I have been experiencing a continuous sensation of something passing through my urethra without any apparent leakage. It started about a week ago. Initially, it occurred at night when I was trying to sleep, and now I feel it during the daytime, especially when I am sitting. I am not sexually active and do not have any known medical conditions.



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Based on your symptoms of feeling something passing through your urethra without leakage, it could be related to conditions like urinary incontinence or urethral syndrome. Urinary incontinence involves involuntary urine leakage and can be caused by various factors such as infections, constipation, or neurological disorders. On the other hand, urethral syndrome leads to urethral irritation without infections and may result from hormonal imbalances or injuries to the urethra. It's essential to consult a healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Treatments for these conditions may include lifestyle changes, medications, pelvic muscle rehabilitation, or even surgery depending on the underlying cause. If symptoms persist or worsen, seeking medical advice promptly is recommended to address the issue effectively.
