When you use the bathroom, urine steps from your bladder with a tube called the urethra. The urethra goes with the prostate and the penis in men. In women, television is much shorter and finishes just over the open up to the vaginal area. Cells in the area grow abnormally and out of control if you have urethral cancer. Your risk may be higher, too, if you've had bladder cancer, frequent urinary tract infections, or venereal diseases that lead to an inflammation of the urethra. Urethral cancer has been connected to human papillomavirus, specifically HPV 16. The HPV vaccine shields against type 16. The FDA has approved the Gardasil 9 HPV vaccine for males and women ages 9 to 45. Perhaps you have a weak urine flow or can not hold it when you do need to go. You may see blood in the toilet or see a discharge from your urethra. An inflamed place or a pain-free swelling might show up in your groin or penis.
