Question: Lump on urethra


 rosebud - Sat Jul 07, 2007 4:57 pm

Hi,
I am 19 years old and not sexually active. About three months ago I discovered a lump just on the entrance of my urethra. I have a lot of what seems like water lnfections- however i have been tested for this and the results cam back normal. I also have a lot of discharge and pelvic pains. The lump seems to be getting bigger and I think all these symptoms are related but not sure. I really don't know if i shoud go the doctor or not as I don't want to waste their time.

Thanks

User avatar Don't worry about wasting time. Most doctors welcome the opportunity to ease your fears about anything you are worried about. They also like to find problems early. Even if this is nothing to be concerned about, it is important for someone your age to have an examination by a doctor. You can use the time to discuss other health matters or concerns you may have including birth control, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, emotional concerns, etc.. Start making a list. You probably have other questions for the doctor too. This will help you to remember what they are when you are there. You may be due for some immunizations or other preventive health tests so definitely make an appointment. Good luck.
