Since urethral strictures have a tendency to recur, the type of treatment you receive and the long-term outcomes are something your doctor will discuss with you. There are no urethral stricture treatment options using oral medication alone.

Non-surgical treatment

The easiest way to treat a urethral stricture is to gradually "stretch" the stricture using dilators. A stricture can also be dilated with a balloon catheter. Dilation is not a cure and may need to be repeated periodically. The patency of the urethra may be maintained with intermittent self-catheterizations, however, recurrent strictures are common.
