Benign lesions in the urinary tracts of young girls are rare. But when they happen, they can cause problems.

What Happens under Normal Conditions?

The urethra is a tube-like organ that carries urine from the bladder out of the body. In females, the urethra is short. It runs from the bladder to just in front of the vagina and opens outside the body. Normal urine flow is painless and can be controlled. The stream is strong and the urine is clear with no visible blood.

 A lesion is a damaged part of an organ or tissue. The defect keeps the organ from working the way it should.
