Urethral Benign Tumor
Urethra, Warts, HPV
Urethral is the duct in penile which is connected to urinary bladder. It takes the urine from bladder to the urethral meatus which is external opening of urogenital duct. Urethral meatus gets contacted to female genital during sexual intercourse and cervix. Urethral meatus HPV growth is one of the most difficult cases to get treated.
The accessibility is limited and bleeding and complication is common. You really can’t apply topical treatment either.
Our approach is to remove them and make sure we get a tissue path so we don’t miss any undesirable cytology as well as prevention of relapses. The BCR™ targets the area with the assistance of a microscope. We have done so many successful cases as you can see our photo gallery. If left untreated might further infiltrate more proximal urethral or cause urinary obstruction which can be a serious complication and urinary obstruction. There are ususally 2 type of presentation with urethral Condyloma or Condylomata.
first group of patient present with growth on their penile tip and urethral meatus. Second group usually present with genital warts which has not been treated promptly and quickly and later by autoinoculation infect the urethral opening. At this time patients get the alarm and seek real treatment of his condition.
