Metastatic involvement of the urethra is a rare finding in patients with carcinoma prostate. The signs and symptoms overlap with those of a primary urethral malignancy. The diagnosis is made following a biopsy of the suspected lesions. We describe the case of a 66-year-old patient with carcinoma prostate who presented with penile pain, 18 months after the treatment with androgen deprivation therapy. Ga-68 prostate-specific membrane antigen positron emission tomography/computed tomography helped in the identification of the urethral and inguinal nodal metastasis, which was confirmed histologically. We also discuss the management of this unusual clinical scenario.
