What is the male urethra?
The male urethra is a tubular structure that originates from the lower portion of the urinary bladder. After running above the scrotal sac and underneath the penis, the urethra ends at the tip of the penis with the urethral meatus (opening). The function of the urethra is to allow the outlet of urine and seminal fluid.
The male urethra can be subdivided into anterior and posterior urethra.
The posterior urethra extends from the bladder to the external urethral sphincter and can be divided into the prostatic urethra, which runs inside the prostatic gland, and the membranous urethra located at the level of the external urinary sphincter. The anterior urethra instead extends from underneath the external urinary sphincter to the meatus, which is the opening of the urethra at the tip of the penis. The anterior urethra can be then further subdivided into bulbar, penile and navicularis urethra.
