A urethral stricture is a narrowing of the urethra caused by injury, instrumentation, infection and certain non-infectious forms of urethritis.
What problems does urethral stricture cause?
Many men with a stricture will have increasing discomfort that comes from the difficulty in urinating and the holding of urine. In others, the problem will show up suddenly and without prior difficulty, requiring immediate care.
If you have a decreased stream of urine or dribbling and these symptoms are getting progressively worse, see your doctor.
