What is Urethral Stricture?

The urethra is the channel or tube that connects the bladder to the genitals for the removal of fluids (urine, semen) from the body. A urethral stricture is the narrowing of the channel due to scarring in or around the urethra, which can block the flow of urine/semen and result in inflammation.
