[Question #6919] Urethra

11 months ago
Can HPV cause urethral pain in men? I’ve been told no mostly but I’m somewhat confused as some have said yes. I would just like further clarification about this and if it can how do?

This is a repetitive question.  Repeating the question will not change the answer.  My impression from our past interaction was that you do not even know that you have HPV.  HPV infections, including warts are asymptomatic.  Pain is a symptom.  When persons have HPV the do not have pain.  EWH ---

Ok I believe I understand. Just want clarification. I believe I missed asking yesterday. I know you say pain is a symptom my question is I suppose for it to cause urethra pain lesions would be present correct? Thanks again

It is clear that the intermittent tingling discomfort you have described is on you mind and frustrating.  As I said earlier however, what you describe does not suggest any STI, including HPV.  EWH---
