Urological Problems and Treatment

According to the reports of the Urological Society of India, the disorders related to urology are more common in adults and older people as compared to the young generation. The urinary system plays a vital role in healthy body function. It helps in filtering all the wastage in the body while passing it through urine. 

Urological diseases can affect women, men, and children of all ages. However, the severity can differ from one person to another.  Disorders related to ureters, bladder, and urethra come under the category of urology. There are various urological disorders such as urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, stress incontinence, urinary tract infections, kidney stones, phimosis treatment, bladder stones, or benign prostate hyperplasia.  Read below to understand the most common urological diseases:

Urinary Incontinence

This is one of the most common urological problem. This condition can lead to leakage of urine at unwanted times. This mostly occurs in older people and females after childbirth. There are different causes that can result in urinary incontinence, such as overactive bladder, weak bladder muscles, urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate, diabetes, or injury in the spinal cord.

Overactive Bladder

This disorder generally causes frequent urge to urinate or difficulty in controlling the urine which may result in leakage. At times, the urinary bladder muscles start contracting involuntarily, leading to cramps. Overactive bladder can be a result f bladder stones, older age, diabetes, or urinary tract infections. 

Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

UTIs can be caused due to an infection in any part of the urinary system. This urological disorder is more common in women as compared to men. According to the clinical reports, 60% of women experience urinary tract infections at some point in their life. In contrast, only 12% of men are affected by UTIs in their life. UTIs symptoms can be painful, causing discomfort in daily life such as burning sensation while urinating, sudden urge to pass the urine, foul smell of urine. 

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

This condition is also referred to as prostate gland enlargement. BPH is a common urological disorder that occurs in older men. This disorder can lead to discomforting symptoms such as blockage in the flow of urine, bladder infection, kidney-related problems, or urinary tract inflammation. BPH can also be a result of a family history associated with urological disorders. 

Kidney and Ureteral Stones

In this urological condition, small stones occur in the kidney. These stones when stuck in the tubes connecting the kidney to the bladder are called ureteral stones. This urological condition can result in painful symptoms such as nausea, severe pain, fever, chills, blood in the urine, or vomiting. 

Bladder Stones

The small substances that emerge in the urinary bladder are called bladder stones. Such stones are usually a result of minerals that concentrated urine crystallize and form small crystals. The stones usually occur when one can not void the bladder. Bladder stones can lead to painful symptoms such as pain during urinating, lower abdominal pain, the frequent urge of urination, bleeding in urine, or interrupted urine flow.

Phimosis

Phimosis is a condition in males in which the foreskin doesn’t pull back from the tip of the penis. Every boy is born with a tight foreskin. With age, the foreskin starts to retract and by the time they turn 3, this no longer remains a problem as the foreskin completely loosens up. This is a common problem in young boys which usually gets cured on its own. But in severe cases, when urination becomes difficult or pain is severe, phimosis treatment becomes essential.

Conclusion

The above-mentioned urological disorders are most common among people. These conditions can affect the quality of life, resulting in painful symptoms like difficulty in urinating, burning sensation while passing the urine, blood in the urine, pain in the genitals, itching, redness, frequent urge to urinate, or leakage of urine.
