Our urologists treat urethral diverticulum, a condition in which a pouch develops by the urethra that holds urine, often leading to infections. Removing the pouch through surgery is the primary treatment option, although there are other methods depending on the severity of the case.
Urethral Diverticulum Symptoms:
- Chronic urinary tract infections
- Pelvic pain
- Blood in the urine
How We Diagnose Urethral Diverticulum:
- Medical history
- Pelvic exam
- Physical exam
Urethral diverticulum is rare, but more common in women between age 40 and 70.
