What does a Urologist Do?
Urologists are trained to diagnose and treat urinary tract disorders. Urologists work with both males and women. Urologists focus solely on urinary tract disorders in female patients.
A female urologist or urogynecologist treats female urology conditions including overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse.
However, urologists can also diagnose and treat penile and testicular disorders in men. In addition, they treat male infertility and sexual disorders.
If you receive an appointment with a urologist, he or she will typically obtain information about your condition from the physician who referred you. In the subsequent phase, they will examine your medical history and conduct a physical examination.
During the examination, patients are asked to disrobe from the midsection down and are given a gown so that the urologist can examine the specific issue.

Overviews of the Most Frequent Urologic Disorders
There are numerous urologic conditions and maladies.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is a benign enlargement of the prostate gland.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to a prostate enlargement. It involves an enlargement of the prostate organ. BPH is extremely prevalent in older males. It has no direct relationship to prostate cancer.
The pressure that a larger prostate can exert on the urethra causes the symptoms of BPH. Urine is transported from the bladder and out of the body via the urethra, a narrow conduit.
Men with BPH may experience an urgent need to excrete frequently. In addition, they may experience a feeble urine flow and a sensation that the bladder is not empty after urinating. Your physician may choose to simply monitor this condition or may prescribe alpha-blockers as a treatment. Surgery is an option for severe cases.
The Condition of Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is a loss of control over the urethra. It results in urinary leakage that is undesirable. This condition can be inconvenient and humiliating, but it is not rare. According to the AUAF, incontinence affects over 15 million individuals in the United States.
There are numerous potential causes of incontinence. Among the most prevalent causes are:
- diabetes during pregnancy or delivery
- overactive urethra enlarged prostate
- feeble bladder muscles
- Weak sphincter muscles (urethra-supporting muscles).
- genitourinary infections
- diseases such as Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis are associated with spinal cord injury and severe incontinence.
- In some instances, lifestyle modifications such as limiting fluid intake may be sufficient to resolve the issue. If these treatments are ineffective, your physician may recommend surgery to address the underlying cause.
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) UTIs are caused by pathogenic bacteria or viruses that invade and infect the urinary tract. They are significantly more prevalent in women, although males can also be affected. According to the AUAF, approximately 40% of women and 12% of men will experience a UTI with evident symptoms at some point in their lives. A searing sensation during urination is a symptom of a urinary tract infection (UTI). Other symptoms include an urgent need to urinate frequently and the sensation that the bladder is not completely empty after evacuating. In most cases, antibiotics can treat UTIs within five to seven days.
Renal and Urinary Stones
When there are crystals in the urine and minute particles surround and collect on these crystals, kidney stones form. Ureteral stones are kidney stones that migrate into the ureter (the passages that transport urine from the kidneys to the bladder).
These stones can obstruct urine passage and cause significant discomfort. Numerous individuals are able to expel small stones from their bodies without medical assistance, but larger stones may cause blockage, which is problematic.
In some instances, medical or surgical procedures may be required to remove sizable stones. ESWL is one of the most frequently used techniques. The procedure involves breaking stones into smaller pieces using sound waves so that they can be expelled from the body more readily.
Other Frequent Urological Disorders
Other frequent urological disorders include:
- prostate cancer
- bladder cancer
- urethral prolapse
- hematuria is the presence of blood in the urine.
- erectile dysfunction (ED)
- interstitial cystitis (also known as painful bladder syndrome) is also known as painful bladder syndrome.
- overactive uterus
- prostatitis (prostate duct enlargement)
