Urethral diverticulum is a rare condition where a pouch or protrusion forms in the wall of the urethra. This diverticulum can cause urinary symptoms and require appropriate treatment. In this article, we will examine the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options for urethral diverticulum.
The symptoms of urethral diverticulum can vary depending on its size and location. Some common symptoms include difficulty urinating, weak or intermittent urinary flow, post-void dribbling, sensation of incomplete bladder emptying, recurrent urinary tract infections, pelvic pain, or pain during sexual intercourse. In severe cases, urinary retention or complications such as stones or infections may occur.
To understand the most appropriate treatment for urethral diverticulum, it is advisable to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist consultation.
