- Incontinence, dribbling.
- Blood in the semen.
- Pelvic pain.
- Lower abdominal pain.
- Bloody or dark urine.
- Discharge from urethra at early morning.
- Swelling of the penis.

Causes of Stricture Urethra ;
Â Stricture urethra happens due to the urethra which becomes narrowed down due to certain causes. The commonest of which happens to be due to :Â
An injury either while riding or a fall and not uncommonly after a medical examination of the bladder through the urethra, or radiotherapy treatment which may damage the lining and the healed area could form into a scar narrowing the lumen.
Infection of the urethra is another cause. For example, sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia. The infection is usually acquired through sexual contact.
Infection as a complication of longterm use of a catheter to drain the bladder.
Infection may cause inflammation in the tissues in and around the urethra. These infections usually clear with treatment but may leave some scar tissue at the site of the inflammation which can cause a stricture. A stricture is just one possible complication from a urethral infection.
Congenital : Some babies are born with a urethral stricture. It is not usually noticeable until late in life, as it fails to widen as the urethra does with growth, thus it only impedes urinary flow relative to the rest of the urethra after puberty. Moreover, the patient will often not "know any difference," and so will not complain about poor flow.
In infants and toddlers, stricture urethra can be as a result of inflammation following a circumcision and not noticeable until toilet training when a deflected stream is observed or when the child must strain to produce a urinary stream.
Passage of kidney stones through the urethra can be painful and subsequently lead to urethral strictures.
Cancer which spreads from prostate cancer or bladder cancer is a rare cause.Â
Complications of Urethral Stricture ;Â
Effect of straining : Herniation, piles, prolapse and so on.Â
More pressure is needed from the bladder muscle to pass urine out through a stricture (it acts like bottleneck). Not all urine in the bladder may be passed when you go to the toilet. Some urine may pool in the bladder. This 'residual' pool of urine is more likely to become infected. This makes you more prone to bladder, prostate and kidney infections.Â
An abscess (ball of infection) above the stricture may also develop. This can cause further damage to the urethra and tissues below the bladder.Â
Cancer of urethra is a rare complication of a longstanding case of stricture urethra.
Stricture Urethra Diagnosed ;Â
A physical examination may reveal the following :Â
- Decreased urinary stream.
- Enlarged or tender lymph nodes in the groin.
- Redness or swelling of the penis.
- Urethral discharge.
- Enlarged or tender prostate.
- Distended bladder.
- Hardness on the undersurface of the penis.
Tests include the following :Â
- Urinary flow rate may be measured.
- Post-void residual (PVR) measurement.
- Urine culture (if evidence of infection).
- Tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea.
