Urethral stricture?: It sounds like you might have a urethral stricture, which on rare occasions might result from infection or irritation from a catheter.

Blad nck hypertrophy: Prostatitis is typically characterized by irritative voiding symptoms (yours are obstructive voiding symptoms) and pain. The dre very rarely is revealing in cases of prostatitis. You are too young for a typical enlarged prostate. Cystoscopy rules out urethral stricture. You probably have primary bladder neck hypertrophy. See a neurourologist to confirm. ...Read more

What can be done to stop dribble after urination? What are the causes? There are always a few drops which end up being released after the main stream.

Post-void dribbling: Post-void dribbling is the leakage of a bit of urine after the penis is back in the pants. A man can see his primary care doctor or a urologist, since men can have prostate problems. If the penis is normal and the foreskin is not trapping urine, then be sure the penis hangs freely while peeing. One should relax at the end to let the last drops come out. Women who drip have different issues. ...Read more
