Synopsis

A urethral caruncle is a benign highly vascularized polypoid growth of middle aged to elderly women, arising from the posterior urethral mucosa. Most lesions are asymptomatic, but they may be associated with dysuria, pain, or bleeding. Caruncles may be associated with recurrent UTIs, urinary frequency/urgency, and urinary incontinence.
