Urethritis in Men Diagnosis
If your physician thinks you may have urethritis, you will be asked to give a urine specimen. The specimen will be examined for signs of infection and inflammation. The doctor will perform a thorough examination of your penis and testicles and do a rectal exam to evaluate your prostate for signs of infection. The doctor may use a thin swab to collect a specimen from the urethra. If the doctor suspects you have a sexually transmitted disease, a blood sample may be tested.
