A stricture can occur for several reasons:

  • Trauma or injury causing scar tissue
  • Infection
  • Congenital – a condition at birth
  • Cancer (in rare cases)

The symptoms of a urethral stricture can include:

  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Feeling you cannot fully empty your bladder
  • Straining during urination
  • Spraying or dribbling during urination
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Pain or blood in urine (rare)

Your GP may refer you to a consultant urologist for diagnosis and treatment. Treatments can range from antibiotics to corrective surgery. Your consultant will recommend the treatment that best addresses your own situation.
