A urethral stricture is a narrowing of the urethra that makes it difficult for a man to pass urine. The narrowing can occur anywhere along the urethra, from the bladder neck, to the end of the penis. It may be caused by scarring from an injury, infection or swelling. When a narrowing in the ureter occurs, the kidney cannot function normally and will be damaged over time.
