Penile Discharge

Testing & treatment for abnormal discharge from the penis

Penile discharge may be the warning sign that indicates the presence of an infection. It may be from sexually transmitted infections or a few other causes. Normal penile discharge takes place at the time of sexual activity and arousal when pre-ejaculation fluid secretes from the tip of the penis. But if there is any abnormality in consistency, frequency, odour, colour and amount of discharge then a consultation with a doctor is a must!

What are the symptoms of penile discharge?

Penile discharge is a symptom itself but may present:

  • Odourless or smelly discharge
  • Thick or watery discharge
  • Green, yellow, white or clear fluid at the penis tip or underneath the foreskin

Based on the cause, penile discharge will be accompanied by a wide range of other symptoms like:

  • Itchy patches or rash near the genitals
  • Swelling and redness at the penis head
  • Soreness or tenderness at the penis head
  • More frequent need to urinate
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Burning sensation during urination
  • Painful urination

What are the causes of penile discharge?

  • Balanitis - It refers to sore, red and inflamed penis head resulted from smegma accumulation. It makes moving of foreskin extremely difficult, emitting strong smell resulting in infection. Poor hygiene and skin conditions like irritation, rashes and infection can lead to it.
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD or STI) - Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia are the most common STDs leading in penile discharge. While Chlamydia makes the discharge cloudy and white, pain can occur during urination and testicles too. Gonorrhoea results in green, yellow, white and thick discharge from penile tip making the head abnormally inflamed.
  • Urethritis - The discharge during this time will be cloudy or white accompanied by burning sensation during urination.

Despite the cause, you must get tested for the actual cause of the issue by a top clinician in London. Both inflammation and infections are curable with early detection and diagnosis! Hence, get tested early!

What to expect during the appointment?

On visiting a clinician near you, a questionnaire will be there to fill out to inform the doctor about the symptoms you are experiencing. After that, you may need to undergo physical examination to detect any noticeable changes in the penis and surrounding area. If an infection is suspected, the doctor will collect a swab sample of the discharge to test in the lab.
