Urology services deal with an array of problems in male and female urinary tracts. The urinary tract is a pivotal channel that stores and removes urine from our body, ultimately removing waste from our system. Diseases and conditions linked with ureters, bladder, and kidneys are urological problems. Furthermore, a urologist specializes in male reproductive organs: penis, testes, prostate, and others. Anyone can develop certain urological problems regardless of age, but risk factors increase these odds.

Many patients have experienced some milder forms of urological problems, bacterial bladder infections, and other ailments. Staying on top of these types of problems is not only important for the treatment of immediate effects, but the consequences of neglect can also further lead to infertility and development of other health issues.

If you experience one or more of the following symptoms, you should plan a visit to the urologist:

  • Difficulty urinating with or without manifestation of pain or burning

  • Presence of blood in your urine

  • Lower back pain

  • Pain in your genitalia

  • Fever and chills

Incontinence and overactive bladder occur both in male and female patients. Females are prone to develop these types of problems after childbirth. Most commonly encountered urological problems in men are the following:

  • Prostatitis – Prostate inflammation that causes problems urinating, pain and discomfort. Non-cancerous ailment.

  • Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH): Enlargement and swelling of the prostate gland which commonly happens to patients above the age of fifty.

  • Prostate cancer – Type of cancer attacking the prostate gland.

  • Testosterone deficiency – Lower production of testosterone impairing the quality of life. Manifests by lack of libido, depression, and inability to focus.

  • Erectile dysfunction – Inability to achieve or maintain an erection during intercourse.

A healthy routine for men above the ages of 30 should include having regular checkups with a urologist.
