Urethritis and cystitis are both lower urinary tract infections. There are many familiar places in clinical manifestations, such as frequent urination, and urodynia, so how to distinguish urethritis from cystitis?

1. Etiological analysis: 

Most cases of urethritis are caused by poor personal hygiene habits, or unclean sexual life, leading to bacteria from the urethral orifice into the urethra. Some cases of cystitis are caused by the aggravation of the condition without the control of urethritis. In addition, cystitis can also cause tuberculous cystitis caused by renal tuberculosis and interstitial cystitis, and the causes of the disease are more than urethritis.


2. Symptom analysis: 

Both diseases have symptoms of urinary pain. Urethritis is characterized by burning pain and stinging pain in the urethra when urinating. Cystitis is characterized by obvious pain at the end of urination, and cystitis is mostly accompanied by abdominal pain, while urethritis is rarely accompanied by abdominal pain. 

In addition, urethritis will be accompanied by urethral orifice abscess, urethral lipstick swelling; cystitis will not appear urethral orifice abscess, redness, but severe cystitis will appear obvious symptoms of hematuria and even blood clots, and even fever, chills.

3. Result of examinations:

These two diseases are not easy to distinguish from urine routine analysis, because the result of this urine routine analysis will both have white blood cells, red blood cell elevation. However, it can be preliminarily distinguished by color Doppler ultrasonography or CT examination. 

When patients with cystitis are examined by color Doppler ultrasonography, they can see that the bladder wall is thicker, rough, and even there are flocculents and blood clots in the bladder. However, the color Doppler ultrasonography of urethritis does not show the above findings.


4. Sex distinction: 

Because the female urethra is short and wide, more women suffer from cystitis, or even urethritis with cystitis than men; while men are more likely to suffer from urethritis, cystitis is relatively rare. The classification of urethritis is very complicated and broad, but if urethritis is not controlled and treated in time, it will also cause cystitis.

We know that cystitis is usually caused by infectious bacteria. Therefore, patients can use herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill, which is rich in a variety of Chinese herbs that can eliminate inflammation, pathogens, and mycoplasma. It has the effect of clearing away heat and detoxification, activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, and can also improve the immunity of the body. Good curative effects can be achieved without fear of recurrence.
