Hi, my son has problems with urine stream and it seems like something is stopping urine from flowing out. He has urethral diverticulum on anterior part of urethra. What is it actually?

Diverticulum of the anterior urethra is an enlargement of urethra nearer exit of urethra. It can occur in both the bladder and urethra. On some parts of urethra it is wider and somewhere more narrow,, so urine stream affects speed of flow of urine. There are two forms: saccular, where the diverticula arise from the floor of the urethra. It is manifested by a weak urine stream, straining and general blockage to urine flow. Megalourethra is more serious since the entire urethra is affected. In these cases, there is some penis tissue missing, so penis doesn’t have the right shape during urination.
