A burning sensation when urinating may not be due to infection

For years, Mr Rajesh Pahwa, 55, lived with a persistent pain in his groin — specifically in the left scrotum and tip of the penis.

Despite spending more than S$5,000 on multiple doctor visits here and overseas, tests and imaging scans in the last three years, there were no clear answers to his mysterious symptoms, which included pain in his thigh and a burning sensation when urinating. The pain was sometimes severe, causing him to limit his fluid intake to avoid visiting the toilet.

He was eventually diagnosed with chronic pelvic pain syndrome at the National University Hospital (NUH).

The condition is often seen in men in their 40s and 50s and can also affect women, said Dr Joe Lee, a consultant at NUH’s department of urology and its director of Andrology and Male Reproductive Medicine.
