A urethral stricture occurs when your urethra narrows due to a buildup of scar tissue, making it harder to urinate. It can be caused by trauma, such as an injury or accident, surgery, radiation therapy, or an enlarged prostate. At Duke, we often help people with urethral stricture who have been treated unsuccessfully elsewhere. Our urologists are experts in treatment options that can help you regain your urination function.
