Urethral Polyp

Urethra Papilloma


Presentation

  • In the case presented herein the polyp was demonstrated initially by sonography as a soft tissue mass arising at the base of the urinary bladder. The differential diagnosis of these lesions is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a case of verumontanum polyp in a 7-year-old boy who presented to us in October 2001 with terminal hematuria, dysuria, interrupted stream and suprapubic pain. The polyp was diagnosed by ultrasonography and cystourethrogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report the presentation and management of such a case of recurrent bulbar urethral poly in a young adult who had presented with obstructive voiding symptoms mimicking a urethral stricture.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • AIMS: Centrally located prostatic ductal adenocarcinoma can present as a single urethral polyp mimicking a benign polyp. Such lesions have not been formally studied.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We report the first case of paraganglioma of the urethra presenting as a pendulous urethral polyp. The pathologic criteria and usual site of presentation in the genitourinary tract are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Soft Tissue Mass
  • In the case presented herein the polyp was demonstrated initially by sonography as a soft tissue mass arising at the base of the urinary bladder. The differential diagnosis of these lesions is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Congenital posterior urethral polyps are rare benign lesions that can cause a variety of symptoms in young boys, the diagnosis is usually made by cystourethrogram and ultrasonography where the polyp appears as a soft tissue mass arising at the base of[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the case presented herein the polyp was demonstrated initially by sonography as a soft tissue mass arising at the base of the urinary bladder. The differential diagnosis of these lesions is presented. 1996 S.[karger.com]
Suprapubic Pain
  • We present a case of verumontanum polyp in a 7-year-old boy who presented to us in October 2001 with terminal hematuria, dysuria, interrupted stream and suprapubic pain. The polyp was diagnosed by ultrasonography and cystourethrogram.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Nipple Discharge
  • Nipple discharge that is bloody or tinged with blood should also be evaluated by a doctor. Learn more in the Everyday Health Cancer Center .[everydayhealth.com]

Urethral Bleeding
  • Back to Top Older patients ( 45 years) Urethral bleeding in this age group usually originates from the prostate gland. Patients should be referred to the Fast-track Haematuria clinic using the standard referral form.[camurology.org.uk]
Vaginal Dryness
  • Many breast cancer survivors enter premature menopause because of the side effects of chemotherapy; this can lessen libido and cause vaginal dryness.[everydayhealth.com]

Workup

Chlamydia Trachomatis
  • Here we reported clinical course and pathological findings of one rare case who was diagnosed and treated as urethral polyp-like lesions on the prostatic urethra caused by Chlamydia trachomatis infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Treatment by orally minocyline 100 mg twice daily for 4 weeks was introduced. After the treatment, symptom was disappeared and nucleic acid amplification test of C. trachomatis in urine specimen turned to be negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The treatment of folk remedies is not a replacement for traditional methods. Gathering all information and making the clinical picture, a urologist may prescribe treatment in unconventional ways as a maintenance therapy.[syphilis.vsebolezni.com]
  • Conventional treatment has included transurethral resection or open cystotomy for complete removal of the polyp.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Current thoughts on diagnosis, associated urologic findings, treatment and possible cause are discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We reviewed the literature to identify the presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis of these polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • We reviewed the literature to identify the presentation, diagnosis, treatment options and prognosis of these polyps.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Factors 7-49 82 Genetic Predisposition and Syndromic Associations 8-1 83 Clinical Features and Natural History of Bladder Cancer 8-2 84 Morphologic Characteristics of Invasive Urothelial Carcinoma 8-10 85 Urothelial Carcinoma in Young Adults 8-14 86 Prognosis[books.google.de]
  • Primary carcinomas arising from a urethral caruncle are rare but are known to occur. [ 13 ] Prognosis If the diagnosis is correct, there is no associated mortality. Symptoms (if any) should subside with treatment.[patient.info]
  • Prognosis and Predictive Factors Urothelial papilloma is a benign tumor that may recur but does not progress. Rare cases of progression have been described in association with immunosuppressive therapy. [5][emedicine.medscape.com]

Etiology

  • The congenital nature suggests a benign neoplastic process as the etiologic factor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, there have been limited numbers of case reports including infectious etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The etiology of the metaplasia of the urothelium is still controversial. Congenital, irritative, infectious, obstructive and traumatic causes have been proposed [ 4 ].[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]
  • Urothelial papilloma tends to occur in younger patients and may be seen in children. [1] Etiology The risk factors for urothelial papilloma are similar to those of other urothelial neoplasms.[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • Histologically, the polyps are composed of a squamous epithelial surface with a fibrovascular stalk and edematous stroma. 4, 5 Proposed etiologies include stromal proliferation or granulation tissue reaction as a result of local injury.[glowm.com]

  • Epidemiology It is uncommon, but is almost exclusively found in postmenopausal women. [ 1 ] A single case has been reported in a man. [ 2 ] Aetiology Aetiology is not well understood. Lack of oestrogen may be a factor.[patient.info]
  • Definition Urothelial papilloma is a benign exophytic neoplasm composed of a delicate fibrovascular core covered by normal-appearing urothelium. [1, 2] Epidemiology Urothelial papilloma has a low incidence; it represents 1-4% of bladder tumors.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Department of Gynecology and Pathophysiology of Human Reproduction, Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna, Bologna, Italy. Introduction : In males, an isolated gross postcoital hematuria is a very rare clinical phenomenon.[pubfacts.com]

Prevention

  • To prevent the rapid spread of benign tumors helps timely medical assistance. Before the time of setting even provisional diagnosis should refrain from treatment folk remedies.[syphilis.vsebolezni.com]
  • Do I need to take special precautions for preventive care? I used to get yearly mammograms and gyn exams but have not had one in several years due to no health insurance.[everydayhealth.com]
  • But as of now, no technique reliably eliminates the condition or prevents the virus from recurring in the future. Local antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents are used to treat Lichen Sclerosis (LS) and (BXO).[blog.edtreatmentindia.com]
  • Would Kegel exercises be sufficient to prevent this from happening again? How can I confirm with my doctor which this is... caruncle or prolapse? Thank you so much![steadyhealth.com]
