Stricture urethra

Urethral stricture is the abnormal narrowing of the urethra ( tube that releases urine from the body)

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

  • Urethral stricture may be caused by inflammation or scar tissue from surgery, disease, or injury. It may also be caused by external pressure from an enlarging tumor near the urethra, although this is rare
  • Risk Factors Increased risk is associated with men who have a history of sexually transmitted disease (STD), repeated episodes of urethritis or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). There is also an increased risk of urethral stricture after an injury or trauma to the pelvic region. Any instrument inserted into the urethra ( catheter or cystoscope) increases the chance of developing urethral strictures

Symptoms

  • Dysuria (painful urination)
  • Difficulty in urinating
  • Urine stream (may develop suddenly or gradually
  • Spraying of urine stream
  • Decreased urinary output
  • Increased urinary frequency or urgency
  • Incontinence
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Bloody or dark urine
  • Discharge from urethra
  • Swelling of penis, testes, scrotum
  • Urinary retention
  • Recurrent infections of urinary tract

Homeopathic approach

We have many patients approaching us after they have gone through all the possible treatment in allopathy including urethral dilatation and they come to us at a stage where they would be doing dilatation once or more than once a week.
We have been over a period of time able to help them stop the dilatation and relieve them of all the symptoms associated with urethral stricture
