The term “ Urologic Diseases ” describes a wide variety of conditions, all related to the filtering and carrying of urine out of the body. These diseases can affect men, women, and children of all ages.
These diseases affect very specific parts of the body. In females, they involve the urinary tract. In males, they affect the urinary tract or the Reproductive Organs.
Overviews of Some of the Most Common Urologic Diseases:
There are many urologic disorders and diseases. The following are a selection of some of the diseases identified as common.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) is an enlarged prostate. It is an increase in the size of the prostate gland. BPH is very common in older men. It is not directly connected to prostate cancer. The symptoms of BPH are caused by the pressure that a larger prostate can place on the urethra. The urethra is the narrow tube that carries urine from the bladder and out of the body.
Urinary Incontinence :
Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. It results in the unwanted leakage of urine. This condition can be inconvenient and embarrassing, but it is far from uncommon.
There are a number of things that can cause incontinence. A few of the most common causes include:
- Pregnancy or childbirth
- Overactive bladder
- Eenlarged prostate
- Weak bladder muscles
- Weak sphincter muscles (muscles supporting the urethra)
- Urinary tract infections
- Diseases including Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis
- Injury to the spinal cord
- Severe constipation
Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs):
UTIs are the result of pathogenic bacteria or viruses that invade the urinary tract and cause infection.They are much more common in women, although men can get them too. A burning sensation during urination is one of the symptoms of a UTI. Others include a frequent urge to urinate and the feeling that the bladder is not completely empty after urinating.
Kidney and Ureteral Stones:
Stones develop in the kidneys when there are crystals in the urine and small particles surround and collect on these crystals. Ureteral stones are ones that move from the kidney into the ureter. These stones can block urine flow and cause a considerable amount of pain. Many people end up expelling small stones from the body without medical help, but larger stones may result in blockage, which is problematic.
Other Common Urological Conditions :
- Prostate cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Bladder prolapse
- Hematuria (blood in the urine)
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Interstitial cystitis (also called painful bladder syndrome)
- Overactive bladder
- Prostatitis (swelling of the prostate gland)
