What Exactly Is an Urologist?
Your urologist is well-versed in the urinary system, which includes your kidneys, bladder, ureters (thin muscles that take urine into your bladder) and urethra (tube that drains urine from your bladder).
Urologists also treat male reproductive organs such as the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate.
A urologist could potentially be your primary care physician if you have:
- Kidney stones are a common condition.
- Cancer of the prostate
- Long-term urinary retention issues
What exactly does a urologist do?
A urologist can diagnose and treat a wide range of problems. Some urologists may practise without performing surgery, although all urologists are surgeons by training.
Urology has several subspecialties, including:
- Urology in children.
- Oncology of the urinary tract.
- Transplantation of a kidney.
- Sexual health care.
- Infertility in men.
- Reconstruction of the genitourinary system.
- Robotic, laparoscopic, and endoscopic surgery are examples of minimally invasive surgery.
What can you anticipate from a urologist visit?
When you schedule an appointment with a urologist or your primary care provider refers you to one, be prepared to explain why you’re there. It may be beneficial for you to bring a list of questions or symptoms relating to the reason for your consultation. You should also be prepared to answer questions about your medical history and current drugs.
Your urologist will most likely prescribe tests to diagnose your illness and establish the best course of treatment for you. Among these exams could be:
- Examination of the body. These will differ between men and women. If you are a man, your doctor may do a rectal exam on you. A pelvic exam may be required if you are a woman.
- Urinalysis, blood tests, and sperm samples are all required. You must give urine, blood, and sperm samples for these examinations. (You should drink some water before going to your appointment since you may be requested to provide a urine sample.)
- Ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) scans are examples of imaging tests.
