Urethral stricture is also known as urethral stenosis. It is generally a condition that is known to arise due to narrowing of the urethra. The urethra is the canal which carries the urine from the bladder towards the penis and pushes out the urethral meatus (i.e., known as the opening at the tip of the penis) during the process of urination.

During the diagnosis of urethral stricture, the doctor would ask about the symptoms and the medical history of an individual and can also conduct a physical examination. After observing the symptoms, the doctor would recommend a list of below-mentioned tests for evaluating the cause, location and the length of the urethral stricture. The diagnostic tests are listed as below:
It is a treatment in which the physician inserts a very small tube (i.e., known as the catheter) into the bladder of an individual to drain out the urine.
This procedure involves surgical removal of the narrowed part of urethra to enlarge that. This procedure usually involves the reconstruction of the surrounding tissues of the urethra. Tissues from other areas of the body, such as from the skin or the mouth, may be used as a graft for reconstructing the urethra. The recurrence of urethral stricture after a urethroplasty process is very rare and is also one of the most preferred treatments.
In this process, the doctor inserts a very thin optical device (i.e., known as the cystoscope) into the urethra, then inserts a small instrument through the cystoscope in order to remove the urethral stricture or vaporize it with the help of a laser light. This surgical procedure is one of the most advanced technique used that usually offers a faster recovery process, minimal scarring and have less risk of recurrent infection.
