Hello,

 

You need urgent investigation for sexually transmitted disease. Most likely you would be prescribed antibiotics. Following are possible;

 

1) Urinary tract infection

2) Gonococcal urethritis

3) Non specific urethritis

4) Prostatitis

 

Apart from these, stone disease and other causes related to bladder and kidneys need to be ruled out by an ultrasound and abdomen x-ray.

 

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

i am new in the country,i am an international student,where do you think i can go to receive the treatment I need,and how much do you think it will cost?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 years ago.

Hello,

 

You can find a local STD clinic, which are usually free or low cost. You can also find a low cost clinic in your area, for your primary health care needs. The ultrasound and x-ray would cost around 500 US dollars.

 

Clicking accept is the only way experts here receive credit for the time and work.

 

Best of luck.
