Ok so it looks like I was diagnosed with a urethal stricture.they want to do the dilation.Does this treatment hurt? I don't really have a lot of symptoms.Could I just let it go,or it must be done?

Re: Urethal stricture questions

It depends on where it is as to whether it will hurt. If right toward the penile opening, they can squirt some anesthetic gel in first to numb it. If you are getting infections or delayed emptying of your bladder, it would be best to get it done. It could get worse and it is easier to treat before the stricture gets too tight.

Re: Urethal stricture questions

Also I read that a catheter has to be put in after this procedure.Why is that?
