UROLOGY HEALTH CARE
On a day-to-day basis, do we ever really appreciate how important our urological health is? Mostly, we take for granted the ability to urinate, to process the foods we eat and drink, to reproduce. So, when something isn’t quite right, we might not stop to consider that there could be a real problem and when to see a urologist.
Our urinary system or urinary tract, is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. The urinary tract stores and expels urine (the liquid waste product) and keeps the right balance of water and chemicals in the body. Urination starts with blood filters in the kidneys, which pass urine through the ureter to the bladder where urine is held until drained through the urethra.
Children and adults, men and women all can be affected by urological conditions. Urology focuses on the care of the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. In women, these problems manifest in conditions such as incontinence, pelvic pain, vaginal prolapse and urinary tract infections. But urology also deals with the male organs that help make babies-the penis, testes, scrotum and prostate. Among the more common conditions related to urology for men are kidney stones, prostate cancer, overactive bladder, erectile dysfunction and low testosterone.
