Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
Okay so when my son goes pee his urine sprays out in two different directions can you tell me what this could possible be?
It depends on his age and whether it occurs each time he goes to the bathroom. Occasionally the edges of the urethra are adhered together and urine comes out on both sides of the adhesion. Another possibility is that he was born with a minor deformity of the tip of the penis that causes his urine to spray. If he has had prior surgery, then it is possible that there is a second urinary opening. He should be seen by his primary care provider.
