Symptoms of urethral stricture range from asymptomatic (no symptoms at all), to mild discomfort, to complete urinary retention (inability to urinate).

Some of the possible complications and symptoms  of urethral stricture include the following:

1.) Spraying or double streaming urine
2.) Bloody or dark-appearing urine also known as hematuria
3.) Blood in the semen (hematospermia)
4.) Urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control)
5.) Pelvic pain
6.) Difficulty starting urine flow (hesitancy)
7.) Painful urination (dysuria)

13.) Discharge from the urethra
14.) Reduced ejaculation force
15.) Stones in bladder
16.) Straining to urinate

The following are usually the causes of scarring or narrowing of the urethra (urethral stricture):

Trauma from any injury or accidents which causes  damage to the urethra or bladder (for example, falling on a frame of a bicycle between the legs, or a car accident), straddle injuries

  1. Pelvic injury, when there is a fracture of the pelvic bone or trauma

  2. Previous procedures involving changes in the urethra (urinary catheters, surgeries, cystoscopy)

  3. Previous prostate surgery such as TURP or transurethral resection of the prostate for prostate enlargement, radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer.
  4. Prostate enlargement

  5. Cancer of the urethra (rare)

  6. Infections of the urethra such as sexually transmitted infections or STDs, urethritis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia)

  7. Prostate infection or inflammation (prostatitis)

  8. Previous hypospadias surgery of a congenital birth defect in which the opening of the urethra is on the underside of the penis instead of the tip.
  9. Congenital malformations of the urethra, though it rarely can cause urethral stricture in children

  10. Brachytherapy in which there is the placement of radiation seeds into the prostate for prostate cancer.

  11. Irritation to the urethral meatus related to diaper opening at the tip of the penis)

  12. Inflammatory conditions such as lichen sclerosis which was previously referred to as balanitis xerotica obliterans in males,  Reiter’s syndrome

Any inflammation of urethra can result in scarring, which then can lead to a stricture or a narrowing of the urethra. Any sort of trauma, Infection, tumours, iatrogenic urological interventions such as urethral instrumentation (catheter placement, cystoscopy), transurethral surgeries, treatment of prostate cancer, or any other cause of scarring may lead to urethral narrowing or stricture. Developmental causes of prostate enlargement can narrow the urethra or any sort of mechanical narrowing of the urethra without scar formation but is not a stricture.

Idiopathy is the most common cause of urethral stricture (41%, no cause identified) in developed countries, followed by iatrogenic (35%). Iatrogenic causes include strictures related to hypospadias (a congenital abnormality where the urethral meatus is located on the underside of the penis, anywhere from the perineum to just short of the head of the penis) and strictures from endoscopic procedures (for example, cystoscopy or transurethral prostatectomy). In developing countries, trauma (36%) is the most common cause of stricture.

The following are some common endoscopic and imaging  tests done to evaluate urethral stricture:


  1. Ultrasound of the urethra
  2. Retrograde urethrogram
  3. Cystography, filling and voiding (VCUG)
  4. Antegrade cystourethrogram
  5. Cystourethroscopy
  6. MRI and CT scan

Ultrasound of the urethra (ultrasound urethrography) is one of the radiologic methods in evaluating urethral stricture. This is a noninvasive method and usually does not require any special preparation.

Currently, doctors may use ultrasound of the urethra in addition to other studies, such as retrograde urethrogram (RUG) to define the structure before surgery.

Once a stricture has developed, it will not go away. The role of medications is limited in the management of primary urethral strictures.


Surgery is also one of the recommended treatments for individuals with symptomatic urethral strictures.

A doctor will suggest surgery in the following circumstances:

If the patient is encountering problems with urination, such as straining to urinate, weak stream, and urinary retention (inability to urinate)

Stones in the bladder

Recurrent urinary tract infections

If there is Increasing post-void residual (amount of urine left in the bladder after urination)

Failure of conservative measures to control symptoms (pain)

Conditions We Treat

How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 1  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • review rating 1  worst service, they just talk as if they will send professional at our place, they give big promises at the time of starting their services, but when the attendant come at our place we realized that he was more delicate than our patient, the person whom they had sent got a small scratch in his finger and than the same day he said he wont come as he got injury, so the next day he dint turn up neither did care24 arrange for a replacement, after calling them for 4 times they said me sorry they couldn't arrange anyone today. they don not have the decency to even inform that they cannot arrange for a replacement.. please do not go for their services, its just the promises nothing to deliver

  • review rating 1  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • review rating 1  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
