    Just posted about UTI - now another problem!
    jennilb5685 posted:
    I posted the one a few posts down about UTI for the third time...well I've had a kidney infection that has came and went twice. Read my other post for more details. I haven't had any more pain from bladder or kidney. But my urethra has been hurting on and off. I made an appt with a urologist but the appt isn't for another week to two weeks. This morning the pain in my urethra was worse and while I was in the bath, I felt around and felt a lump inside my urethra about an inch that is about the size of a bean and it is tender to the touch. That's definitely what is hurting. It's not excrutiating pain or anything but its hurting just enough to be a constant distraction and annoyance that makes me squirm when I am sitting. Anyone know what this could be??

    Hi jennib5685,

    I am sorry you are in pain. Contact your urologist to move up the appointment, or go to you local emergency. A doctor is the person who can properly diagnose you. Please keep us updated.

    This could be a urethral diverticulum .
