N34.1: Nonspecific urethritis
Your urethra has become inflamed.
When you have to pass water, the urine flows from the bladder via the urethra and out.
An irritated urethra may become inflamed. This tends to happen as a result of pathogens or following medical treatment.
People with an inflamed urethra often experience pain or a burning sensation when urinating. They often feel a constant urge to urinate. The urethral discharge may be mucoid (glassy) or purulent.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
