The most prevalent motivation for self-insertion of urethral foreign bodies is autoerotism/psychological impairment. Appropriate surgical technique guided by physical examination/ imaging with endoscopic removal is often successful, depending on the object’s physical attributes and morphology while minimizing urothelial trauma and preserving voiding and erectile function. Follow-up cystourethroscopy is important for diagnosing any complications and urothelial injuries......
