Sclerotherapy: A misdirected injection during sclerotherapy can injure the prostate and cause a discharge from the urethra. The discharge should resolve, but if it continues I recommend seeing a physician or urologist for evaluation and treatment. Culturing of the discharge would be performed in order to check for prostate infection.
