Should I be worried about urethral cancer?

You should be worried about urethral cancer if you suffer from bladder cancer, recurring urinary tract infections, or other illnesses that create chronic swelling in your urethra. Some sexually transmitted diseases like human papillomavirus are also thought to be a possible cause of urethral cancer. Age and gender are other factors. Urethral cancer occurs most often in women over the age of 50. Talk to a doctor about urethral cancer if you are over 50 years old and have any of these illnesses or notice problems with urination.
