What Conditions does a urologist treat?

If anything really bad happens with your urinary system or your body's mechanism for trying to get rid of pee, you may have to see a urologist. They are professionals who can treat everything from kidney stones to cancer.

What Exactly Is a Urologist?

The urologist is well-versed in the urinary system, which involves your kidneys, bladder, ureters (thin muscles that transport urine into your bladder), and urethra (the tube that drains pee out of your bladder.)

Urologists also care for men's reproductive organs, which also include the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate.

A urologist might be your primary care physician if you have:

  1. Kidney stones are a common issue.
  2. Cancer of the prostate.
  3. Long-term urinary retention issues.

What Conditions does a urologist treat?

Urologists can help with bladder issues, urinary infections (UTIs), bladder and kidney cancer, kidney obstruction, and kidney stones.

Men may also notice them for:

  1. ED (erectile dysfunction) (ED).
  2. Prostate gland enlargement.
  3. Cancer of the prostate.
  4. Cancer of the testicles.

Women may also consult a urologist for

  1. Having difficulty retaining your pee after pregnancy.
  2. Prolapse of the pelvic organs (when an organ like the uterus or bladder starts to drop or press into or out of the vagina).

If a child has an atypical urinary tract condition, such as bedwetting, he or she may need to consult a urologist.

What Should I Expect from a Visit?

On your first visit urologist may ask for information about your medical history, present symptoms, and medications you're taking.

The urologist will perform a physical exam, which will include a genital and rectal examination. They may also request blood tests or imaging tests, such as a CT scan or ultrasound, to get a better look at your organs.

What Services Can a Urologist Provide?

Urologists can write prescriptions and provide "lifestyle training." Exercises that strengthen your pelvic muscles, for example, can help you handle some difficulties with urine withholding.

Urologists can also perform a variety of procedures. Some of it may be done in their workplace. Others may be significant surgical procedures performed at a hospital.

A few common procedures include:

Cystoscopy. This is a nearby view of your bladder and urethra using a cystoscope, which is a unique telescope-like instrument.

Ureteroscopy. It's a procedure that, like cystoscopy, allows you to see into your ureters and kidneys.

Biopsy of the prostate. A small tissue sample from your prostate is removed by the urologist and tested in a lab for disease.

Nephrectomy. This is a procedure to remove a kidney to treat cancer.

Vasectomy. To avoid pregnancy, the urologist cuts the sperm tubes.

When Is It Time to See a Urologist?

In certain circumstances, your primary care physician may be able to manage minor urinary tract issues. However, if your symptoms are severe or do not go away, you should consult a urologist.

Some of the warning signs are:

  1. Urine with blood in it.
  2. Bladder control problems.
  3. When you pee, you may have pain in your lower back, stomach, or groin (which can mean kidney stones).
  4. Having difficulty obtaining or maintaining an erection.
  5. Prostate enlargement.
  6. Urinary tract cancers are a kind of cancer that affects the urinary system.

Check with your health insurance provider first. Many health insurance companies need a reference from your primary care doctor before you go to a urology hospital.
