Urethral Cancer Symptoms

symptoms

Urethral cancer can be a silent disease, with no symptoms at all during the early stages. People with urethral cancer may eventually develop any of the following symptoms:

  • Lump or growth in the penis or in the perineum, which is the area between the genitals and the anus

  • Blood in the urine

  • Urinating often or feeling a frequent urge to urinate without passing much urine

  • Pain, low flow, or dribbling while urinating

  • Enlarged lymph nodes in the groin area

  • Discharge from the urethra

It is important to remember that all of these symptoms can be caused by many other medical problems. If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor as soon as possible.
