Urethral cancer can be a silent disease, with no symptoms at all during the early stages. People with urethral cancer may eventually develop any of the following symptoms:
Lump or growth on the urethra (that may be noticed at the tip of the penis or in the perineum, which is the area between the genitals and the anus)
Blood in the urine
Urinating often or feeling a frequent urge to urinate without passing much urine
Pain, low flow, or dribbling while urinating
Enlarged lymph nodes in the groin area
Discharge from the urethra
It is important to remember that all of these symptoms can be caused by many other medical problems. If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor as soon as possible.
