When Do You Need To See A Urologist?by Shivani Sachdev Founder & Director
A urologist is a doctor who treats and diagnoses diseases of the urinary tract both in women and men. They also treat diseases related to the male reproductive tract. They may perform surgery in some cases like opening up the blockage in the urinary tract, removing cancer, etc. They work in a variety of settings like private clinics, urology centers, and hospitals.
Urology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the diseases of the male reproductive system and the urinary tract. It is also known as genitourinary surgery. Organs that fall under the sphere of urology include ureters, urethra, kidneys, urinary bladder, adrenal glands and male reproductive organs like a penis, testes, prostate, vas deferens, epididymis, and seminal vesicles. Urological techniques include laparoscopic surgery, laser-assisted surgeries, and scope-guided procedures.
Andrologist is a urologist who specializes in male health, particularly problems related to the male reproductive system and urological problems unique to men. Andrology is the branch of medicine which is concerned with men’s health and specializes in sexual dysfunction and male infertility.
Damage in the male reproductive tract and a variety of sperm disorders can lead to this problem. The common cause is varicoceles, an enlarged vein that is present beneath the penis.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
The infection takes place when bacteria migrate to the urethra from the digestive system. The symptoms include vomiting, pain, abnormal urination, nausea, fever, and incontinence.
Damage to the kidney may lead to kidney failure which can be fatal. Damage leads to swelling of ankles and hands.
BPH (Benign Prostatic hyperplasia) affects men who are over 50 years. Urethra constricts when there is an overgrowth of cells in the prostate gland which leads to the problem of urination.
It is a disease where a fibrous layer of scar tissue develops underneath the skin of the penis. This may lead to bending in the penis during an erection which is known as phimosis. There can lead to pain and difficulties with sexual intercourse.
Inflammation or infection of the prostate can cause painful ejaculation and urination. Acute or chronic prostatitis can lead to a lot of problems.
In this, the penis is unable to attain sufficient rigidity which makes it difficult to participate in sexual discourse.
Painful bladder (Interstitial cystitis)
This is a chronic inflammatory bladder condition which can cause mild to severe discomfort while urinating.
Other symptoms which tell you that you need to see a urologist are a blood in urine, painful urination, hernia, poor bladder control, pain in lower stomach or groin area and overactive bladder (OAB).
