In brief: Depends
A catheter is a plastic tube.
It can be placed in many different organs for many different purposes. You should discuss the specifics of your situation with your doctor. It is always better to not have a catheter if one is not needed as they are always an infection risk, however they are needed for care in many different medical conditions.
