When there is abnormal loss of fluid that is neither urine nor semen through the urethra all the way to the tip of the male reproductive organ (penis), the occurrence is usually referred to as penis discharge or penile discharge. In a situation like this, the victim is usually aware that he had been exposed to a form of STD (sexually transmitted disease). To substantiate the required treatment, it is necessary that the victim undergoes prompt and accurate diagnosis before deciding on treatment since those signs can be associated with different classes of STDs. Penis discharge symptoms include yellow or green like color, however, sometimes the discharge could also be colorless.
Men already portraying the named symptoms can also portray other signs which may include burning sensation while passing urine, the need to pass urine frequently than usual although this could also be associated with kidney disorder, itchy or painful rash around the genitalia in addition to swollen lymph nodes. Understanding some of the penis discharge symptoms is very important as you endeavor to treat this condition. According to research, it has been substantiated that young men are mostly associated with penile discharge and that it is a condition that can affect any race.

Mostly yellowish or greenish color like discharge maybe present if infection is the cause of the problem.
