Can pain during urination be due to UTI and can UTI last for 6-7 years ?

Hi there, I am a 20 year old male. Virgin. Several weeks after I turned 13 I started noticing an intense pain during urination. I told my Dad, but he shamed me and told me that it is because I masturbate, and if I wanted the pain to stop: I must stop masturbating. In fact I have gone several months without masturbating, and the pain is still there. As the years went by, the pain became more and more intense until last year, when I started noticing little dabs of blood coming out after I urinate. And this year, the pain lasts a little while after I finish urinating. It seems like the pain is coming from the mid lower shaft of the urethra , somtimes it feels like it is coming directly from the base of the urethra. It s hard to tell. I live on my own now and don t have healthcare . Is there anything I can do to make the pain stop? Could it possibly be a urinary tract infection? Could a urniary tract infection last for 6-7 years? Thank You.

you have got some damage and infection in your penile urethra as you got a drop of blood after you urinate.
Go for routine urine check up and take one course of urinary antibiotic.take plenty of water.
If still problem persists then you may require ultra sound of bladder and urethra.
