How long have you had this?

Have you had a urine culture done?

It has been less than 2 weeks and have not been to a doctor yet.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
should I go to my general practice doctor ior a urologist?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

I would recommend that you see your doctor for a urine culture and an exam of the testicle. This sounds suspicious for a possible infection of the testicle that may be leading to this burning. If you have a urologist, it would be ideal to see them

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have no burning when urinating..would you still believe it's an infection just not an infection of the urine track?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

If this is a testicle infection, they tend to start from a urinary tract infection

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Wouldn't a urinary track infection cause pain when urinating?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, it sometimes can but not always. You may just have an of bacteria to affect the testicle but not cause any burning when you urinate
