A urologist is a medical professional who is well versed with medical diseases of male and female urinary tract infections as well as male reproductive parts. If you come across the following conditions its necessary to meet a urologist.
A urologist can help with bladder issues and pelvic pain in men and women, as well as sexual dysfunction and infertility in men.
It’s not always easy to know when you should see a urological surgeon. It might even feel like a hassle. But make no mistake: Scheduling an appointment can save you a lot of discomfort and pain, and it could even save your life.
So these are some problem given below which only a certified urologist can treat
- You have a urinary tract infection (UTI) that won’t go away.
If you experience burning, painful and frequent urination that doesn’t improve with antibiotics, it could be a sign that you have interstitial cystitis (IC), also known as a painful bladder. A urologist will test your urine and examine your bladder with a cystoscope to make the diagnosis. IC can be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and can also be prevented by avoiding certain triggers, typically alcohol, spicy foods, caffeine, and chocolate.
- You’re peeing a lot or leaking urine.
Urologists work with both men and women to manage the symptoms of overactive bladder (OAB) and urinary incontinence. If it is OAB, lifestyle modifications, medications, and surgical treatments can help get the symptoms under control. Here’s how to tell if you’re peeing too much.
- You think you have a kidney stone.
Kidney stones are most notably marked by severe pain on one side of your lower back, though other symptoms include nagging stomach pain, blood in the urine and urine that smells bad or looks cloudy. If you experience these symptoms, you should see your urologist as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment.
- You’re a man experiencing erectile dysfunction (ED).
An andrologist is often the first doctor a man will turn to if he’s having difficulty getting or maintaining an erection. The problem can be a psychological one, but more often than not there’s an underlying medical or physical cause.
- You’re experiencing pelvic pain.
Pain in the pelvic area has many causes, which can include IC, prostate inflammation, prostate infection, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer. Your urologist can help diagnose the cause and provide treatment.
- You’re a man concerned about his fertility.
If you and your partner haven’t been able to conceive for six months to a year, you may want to see a urologist for a fertility checkup. A urologist can gauge your fertility based on semen tests, blood work, and ultrasounds.
