Common urology problems in men
Balanitis -This condition is an inflammation of the head of the penis. A similar condition, balanoposthitis, refers to inflammation of the head and the foreskin. Balanitis most often occurs in men and boys who have not been circumcised and who have poor hygiene. Inflammation can occur if the skin under the foreskin is not cleaned regularly, allowing debris, dead skin, swear, and bacteria to collect under the foreskin and cause irritation.
Treatment for balanitis depends on the underlying cause. Typically, treatment will include antibiotics or antifungal medications. In cases of severe or recurrent cases, a circumcision may be recommended.
Phimosis – This is a condition when the foreskin of the penis is so tight that it cannot be pulled back to the head of the penis. Immediate medical attention is needed if the condition makes urination painful or impossible.
Treatment of phimosis may include medication to treat the condition. If medications and manual exercises have failed to loosen the foreskin, the urologist may recommend circumcision. Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin and is often performed to treat phimosis.
Paraphimosis – Paraphimosis is a medical emergency which can cause serious complications if not treated. Paraphimosis is the condition when the penis gets stuck behind the head of the penis and cannot be pulled back. Paraphimosis can happen after an erection or sexual activity, or due to an injury to the head of the penis.
Treatment of paraphimosis aims to reduce the swelling of the glans and foreskin. Applying ice packs can help reduce swelling. If all measures fail to reduce swelling and allow the foreskin to return to its normal position, the urologist may recommend circumcision as a treatment for paraphimosis.
Kidney stones – Due to their hectic lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits, kidney stones are becoming more common in residents of Kolkata. Kidney stones can cause pain as they move through your urinary tract. Proper diagnosis of kidney stones by blood tests, urine tests or other imaging tests is very important to check the size and location of kidney stones. If the stone is small in size and does not pose risks, the urologists might prescribe medicine to help you pass the stone. Surgery could be necessary if the stone gets stuck along the route.
Symptoms of a kidney stone include having trouble urinating and having cloudy or bloody urine, and strong pain in your side, back, groin, or lower belly. If you have symptoms of a kidney stone, you need to consult a urologist and get immediate attention.
A urologist will also recommend lifestyle changes that may help prevent kidney stones from forming. This includes drinking more water, reducing salt and animal protein in your diet, and avoiding calcium supplements.
Urinary tract infections – Urinary tract infections (UTIs) develop when bacteria get into the urinary tract. UTIs can cause mild to severe pain or burning while urinating and an urgent/ frequent feeling to urinate. UTIs require treatment by an expert urologist in Kolkata right away to keep the infection from spreading from the bladder to the kidneys. Urologists usually prescribe antibiotics to get rid of the infection. The urologist will also talk to you about ways to prevent getting a UTI in the future. Getting the best and proper treatment of UTIs is very important to prevent recurrent UTIs or other complications. Consult the best urologists for UTI treatment in Kolkata at Pristyn Care.
