Urethral abscesses and fistulas are potentially serious complications that can occur in the urinary tract. Urethral abscesses are collections of pus that form in the urethra due to an infection, while urethral fistulas are abnormal passages that develop between the urethra and surrounding structures. In this article, we will examine the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for urethral abscesses and fistulas.
Symptoms of urethral abscesses may include pain or tenderness in the urethral area, swelling, redness, fever, burning during urination, and purulent discharge from the urethra. Urethral fistulas may present with symptoms such as urine or fluid leakage from the urinary tract through an abnormal opening, recurrent urinary tract infections, pain during urination or sexual intercourse, and swelling or inflammation in the genital region.
To understand the most appropriate treatment for urethral abscesses and fistulas, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialized consultation.
