Overview

Common complications of urethral cancer include metastasis, anemia, hydronephrosis, urethral stricture, and urinary incontinence. The prognosis of urethral cancer varies with the depth of invasion, anatomical location, size, and stage of tumor. Superficial tumors located in the distal urethra have the most favorable prognosis.
