Urethral caruncle or cancerous tumor?

Posted by cctoo. Catherine Crowley @cctoo, Sep 3 4:23pm

Anyone have caruncle…post menopause.. That was cancerous?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Gynecologic Cancers group.

@cctoo, a urethral caruncle is a small, benign vascular growth that usually occurs at the back part of the urethra. Your urethra is the duct through which urine exits your body. It can be hard to visually determine whether the growth is truly a urethral caruncle or another type of lesion, such as a carcinoma (a type of cancer tumor). A biopsy can confirm if the growth is benign or cancerous.

Do you have this? Was a biopsy done?
