In medicine, specifically urology, dysuria refers to painful urination.[1]

Difficult urination is also sometimes described as dysuria.[2]

It is one of a constellation of irritative bladder symptoms, which includes urinary frequency and haematuria.



This is typically described to be a burning or stinging sensation. It is most often a result of a urinary tract infection. It may also be due to an STD, bladder stones, bladder tumours, and virtually any condition of the prostate. It can also occur as a side effect of anticholinergic medication used for Parkinson's disease.


Flavoxate is an effective treatment for pain.

Notable cases

Napoleon, General of the French, is said to have suffered from the condition from time to time, particularly in the French invasion of Russia, when he was sometimes unable to inspect the battle field because of this condition.
