The tip of my urethra is hurting, what can it be?

Hello, I am 30 year old male. On July 6, 2020 I was masterbating & right when the cum came out, I felt a burning sensation at the tip of my urethra. It’s been two weeks now, whenever I sit down I get a burning feeling of the tip of my urethra. When I walk around, the burning sensation disappears. When I go pee, I don’t have any bladder pain, no blood in urine, I don’t have trouble emptying my bladder. My urethra hurts, right when you enter into my pee hole. Normally, I masterbate 2-3 a day, everyday. I’ve been doing this, since I was 16.

I went to local urgent care, they checked of my testicles are in enlarged. They didn’t see any issues with my testicles. What can this be ?

Did the urgent care say anything about urethritis?   This is inflammation of the urethra.  It is a common reason for burning at the spot you mention.  https://www.healthline.com/health/urethritis    This gets better with antibiotics.  Did they check for this?  There is also something called urethra syndrome that doesn't involve an infection.  https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325057  Have you had your prostate checked?  Prostate issues can cause a burning feeling too. I assume you've ruled out any std's by the way as well.  I'd go to a regular doctor (not urgent care) and discuss this.  I'd also lay off masturbation for a few days to give yourself a rest.  Let us know what happens.

Hey there. I have taken 2 weeks off from masterbation. I took a urine sample for UTI, chlamydia & gonorrhea. I’m waiting to here for the results. I feel like, I caused a damage to my nerve ending at the tip of my penis. Urgent care doctor checked my balls, for testicle cancer & she didn’t see any sign of that.

I agree with GuitarRox on this - did they do any urine testing? Any other exams other than checking your testicles?

Oh and I ask about the urine testing because if you have a prostate infection or inflammation, you might have white blood cells in your urine.
I was checked for gonorrhea and chlamdia. It’s the tip of my urethra that hurts. It feels like somebody shoved a pen inside my urethra. For example, when I wake up in the morning. I almost feel no pain. But around the evening time it’s usually stays up hurting. It stops hurting when I start walking around. It’s because the boxers are not as tight, since I’m walking.
Actually, it may not be your boxers. Prostate inflammation is a really common cause of your symptoms.

You could also have urethral syndrome, but the symptoms aren't so well matched to yours - https://www.healthline.com/health/urethritis-chronic

You really need further examination to know for sure. You could also try going without boxers or underwear and seeing if that helps.

go see an urologist its what they specialize in ,  doing otherwise is like have a tree surgeon doing your plumbing , make an appointment and make sure you tell them everything regardless
