I have ureterocele and I have visited many urologist.All of them recommended observation with no intervention. Why is that and what could happen later?

Ureterocele is merely a term describing the congenital dilation of the very ending (intramural) part of ureter which looks like a balloon-visible on imaging study like US or CT and on direct inspection.

But what is the unit for 4 x 4, mm or cm? How this may make sense to your health and how to decide its care? Need to.. ...Read more

A f/u visit w/urologist in jan. Showed i had blood in urine again. Had cystoscopy done last week & was told i likely had a ureterocele. Implications?

Depends ?obstruction: Ureteroceles usually dianosed by bladder ultrasound. No intervention unless ureterocele is causing any significant obstruction evidenced by hyrdonephrosis (kidney swelling) on that side. Is it simple single system ureterocele or ectopic with duplex kidney? Simple cystoscopic incision, to allow uretrocele to drain. Why not done at cysto? Would be happy to review us for 2nd opinion if sent by email. ...Read more
