Dysuria

 

disturbance of urination, usually as a result of difficulty in discharging urine from the urinary bladder when there is pressure on the urethra by a hematoma, tumor, or enlarged prostate gland or there is obstruction by a stone; dysuria can also occur as a result of functional disturbances in diseases of the nervous system (spasms, for example).
