Urology is a medical and surgical field of medicine that focuses on the treatment of diseases affecting the urinary tract of males and females, as well as the reproductive organs of males. It deals with all problems affecting the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, adrenal glands, and the male reproductive system, which includes the testes, epididymis, prostate, penis, vas deferens, and seminal vesicles.
Factors that may increase one’s risk of developing urologic ailments include:
Unhealthy eating habits | Sedentary lifestyle | Smoking | Excessive alcohol consumption | Overweight | Hypertension | Diabetes | Family history | Certain types of medication
There are many urologic disorders and diseases, among which the common ones are:
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) | Urinary incontinence | Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) | Kidney and ureteral stones | Erectile dysfunction
One should see a Urologist right away, on experiencing the following symptoms:
Frequent need to urinate | Difficulty urinating | Blood in urine | Pain or burning
sensation while urinating | Pain in testicular area | Incontinence | Severe constipation |
Problem with getting or keeping an erection | Fertility issues in males | Abnormality in prostate exam report
Kidney removal | Renal surgery | Prostatic surgery | Bladder surgery | Urethra surgery | Surgery to the penis | Testicular surgery | Pelvic lymph node dissection | Surgery of the ureters, including ureterolithotomyor removal of stones in the ureters
Risks during or after a urologic surgery entirely depend on the type of surgical procedure (open or laparoscopic) and the extent of organ involvement. Open surgery poses the standard surgery and anesthetic risks associated with strain on the heart and lungs. Risks of infection at the wound site accompany all surgeries, open and laparoscopic. The risk of injury to adjacent organs is higher in laparoscopic surgery. Kidney removal and transplantation have many risks because of the extent of the surgery, as do surgeries of the colon, bladder, and prostate.
