Urethral caruncles are benign outgrowths of tissue at the urethral opening, occurring primarily in postmenopausal women. If there are no symptoms, & it appears benign, no treatment is necessary. For symptoms such as bleeding & pain, topical estrogen cream for 2-3 months, warm sitz-baths & anti-inflammatory drugs can be used. If large and painful, surgical excision can be performed.
