Gonorrhea in Males

Alternate Names : Gonococcal Urethritis

Gonorrhea in Males | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the infection diagnosed?

Diagnosis of a gonococcal infection starts with a medical history and physical exam. The Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria can be cultured from infected body sites.

Testing for HIV and syphilis should also be offered to those diagnosed with gonorrhea. These sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, are more common in people with gonococcal infections.
