Urethral Caruncle after menopause

Has anyone ever had one of these? If so how did you get it treated and how long did it take to go away? I really hope someone out there has had this. I am only 30 and have been diagnosed with having one and using Premarin at present to try and shrink it but so far no luck. I can find some information on the internet and it says it is common in post-menopausal women so someone out there must of had one before!

Re: Urethral Caruncle after menopause

I've never ever heard of this and plan on researching this later today.
I'm wondering if it's uncommon because no one answered the post.
does it hurt or are you uncomfortable like when we get the sensations of a uti?
hoepfully someone else can help you with this.

Re: Urethral Caruncle after menopause

Hi Sally,

I am a newbie on this website and saw your post about the urethral caruncle. I just discovered what I think is the exact thing you have described, except that I am 59. I felt some irritation and looked to see if I could see any redness or anything and there it was -- it looks like a small raspberry coming out of the urethral opening. So, now I have to make an appointment with the doctor which I plan on doing tomorrow. I did some research and it appears pretty common. I read that first they try the Estrogen Cream and then I guess if it's still bothersome they can excise it surgically.

I'm wondering where you've had this back in 2006 and it's now June of 2007, if you've had it shrink with the estrogen or if you've gone back to the Urologist for more treatment.

I await your reply.
