Is urethra cancer fatal?

Depends upon stage.

Cancer
Cancer of the urethra is not a very common malignancy but can happen. If a urethral cancer is small and has not spread (low stage), then the cancer may be treated by local therapy and cured. If a urethral cancer is large, deeply invasive and has spread to lymph nodes or other organs (higher stage disease), then it could be a serious problem. Stage is the most important prediction for outcome.

Is your urethra part of your hymen?

No it isn't

Vagina
They are very close together. Urethra lies above & right next to vagina & hymen is located at the veginal opening. So they can be touching but are not part of each other.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

How does e.coli get into my urethra?

E. coli

Women
This organism may often be present on the perineum by colonization with fecal flora. It may also colonize the vaginal barrel. From the perineum (labia, etc.) to the urethra orifice is easy. Infections occur with physiological obstructions, or in just susceptible women. This does not happen with men.

my urethra stings after ejaculation?

Hard to say

Stings
Could be anything from totally normal to signs of an infection or sexually transmitted disease or and do not laugh, you got soap in your urethra in the shower. If ONCE only and then normal, probably not serious. If recurrent, go see your doctor. Most urethral infections in men are quite easily treated.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

Blood in urine. Some pain in urethra?

Gross hematuria

Urine
Gross hematuria (visible blood in the urine) along with flank pain in a 50-year-old male can have more than one cause. Infection along the the urogenital system & kidney stones are the most common. Other things such as malignancy and a ruptured cyst are also possible. A red urine may not always be blood & "urethra pain" may not be urethra pain. A doctor should be consulted for these symptoms.
