Strictures

A urethral stricture is a narrowing in any part of the urethra (the tube that drains urine from the bladder). This narrowing limits the normal urine flow and can cause various symptoms. Urethral strictures occur primarily in men because they have a longer urethra than women do. Strictures may be caused by inflammation, surgical scar tissue, disease or injury.
