泌尿科-诺福克 « BACK TO HEALTH SERVICES LIST

While you might not think about it often, your urinary tract is a critical aspect of your overall health and wellness. A urologist is a physician who specializes in the treatment of your urinary tract. Some patients assume that a urologist specializes in the treatment of men only, but this isn’t true. 事实上, 泌尿科医生会治疗男性, 女性, and children because they all may develop issues that can impact their urinary health.

Your urinary tract will consist of four primary areas: your 膀胱, kidneys, ureters, and 尿道. You will see a urologist when you have symptoms that are caused by or affect any of these areas. 对很多人来说, symptoms could include anything from pain when urinating to urinating too often or not often enough.

Once you reach a certain age, you may be encouraged to see a urologist regularly for routine care and screening. The urology team at 澳门电玩官方入口 Norfolk can help you maintain and improve the health of your urinary tract and diminish uncomfortable symptoms.

When Should You See a Urologist?

在一般情况下, most patients will see a urologist when they have trouble urinating or with their urinary tract. But you may also see a urologist when you develop issues with your adrenal glands or your reproductive system. That’s because your adrenal glands are located quite close to your kidneys. Additionally, your reproductive system and urinary systems are closely linked.

Some common symptoms that are often treated by a urologist include the following:

  • 尿失禁: If you have a hard time controlling when you urinate, there may be something wrong with your urinary tract. In these cases, a urologist can help provide treatment.
  • 前列腺问题: For men, prostate issues can develop due to age. An enlarged prostate, for example, can interfere with your ability to urinate. Treatment may include medication or surgery. 
  • 小便时疼痛: 在一般情况下, pain when you urinate is not normal, and it’s a sign that something is wrong. Consistent or severe pain should be brought to the attention of your urologist.
  • 勃起功能障碍: This often occurs due to more general health issues (such as high blood pressure), but your urologist may be able to provide effective solutions for some forms of erectile dysfunction.
  • 尿中带血: 在一般情况下, urine should not be bloody. Noticing blood when you urinate is something you should talk to your urologist about.

The general rule of thumb is that if you have pain or discomfort when you urinate–or you urinate too often (or not often enough), you should make an appointment with your urologist.

What Conditions Does a Urologist Treat?

Your urologist will be able to assist with a wide variety of urinary-tract related conditions. Among the most common include the following:

  • 前列腺增生: Also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), an enlarged prostate can make urination uncomfortable. Urologists at 澳门电玩官方入口 can help alleviate discomfort by removing excess prostate tissue or with new procedures that help move the prostate out of the way.
  • 肾结石: In some cases, kidney stones can pass on their own. 在其他情况下, they may create significant obstructions–or at the very least cause significant pain and discomfort. Your urologist will be able to help treat your kidney stones and manage your discomfort.
  • 尿路感染: If you experience frequent UTIs, it may be important to see your urologist. Medications can sometimes help treat UTIs when they occur.
  • Cancers of the 膀胱 and urinary tract: Your urologist can help screen for, 识别, and treat various cancers of the 膀胱 and urinary tract.

这个列表并不详尽. There are other issues that your urologist will be able to help you with. Additionally, for men over 40, annual screenings with a urologist are highly recommended.
