Özet

Urethral caruncles are considered as benign tumors. They need to be treated surgically; specimens should carefully be evaluated for the presence of any malignancy. We are presenting a 57-year-old female patient with a urethral lesion that looks like caruncle, but histopathologic examination of the excised lesion was reported as urethral adenocarcinoma.
