Urethritis usually presents with several different symptoms. The patient may experience urinary burning, urethral discomfort and/or spontaneous urethral discharge outside of urination. This discharge may resemble pus or serum and may be accompanied by blood.

Urethritis may also be manifested by urinary frequency or hematuria (blood in the urine). Depending on the extent and origin of the infection, other clinical signs may also be present.

Symptoms of urethral stenosis

Urethral stricture results in the majority of cases in very thin or double, interrupted, spiral urinary jets. It can also be manifested by the following signs:

  • dripping of urine after urination,
  • burning sensation when urinating,
  • presence of residual urine as a result of obstruction or urine flow,
  • urinary tract infection,
  • hematuria (blood in the urine)

In the most severe cases, stenosis can lead to complete obstruction of urine flow.
