How a urologist can help you for urology issues?
Urological health is very important part of overall healthcare. Both men and women can have urological issues. Generally, problems that involve the urinary tract, including the kidneys, bladder and urethra can be called urological issues. Many a time, genitourinary problems also come under urological problems. In aging men and women, incontinence, difficulties passing urine, urinary tract infection and sexual issues can be persistent and tiresome. An early consultation with a consultant urologist in London can be the first step to deal with the urological issues.
What issues may need to be addressed?
In men, issues with the prostate, testicles, penis and areas nearby may indicate urological problems. In women, gynaecological issues, and problems with female urinary tract may need addressing. Sexual and reproductive health-related concerns are also commonly addressed with a consultant urologist. When there are issues connected to urology in children, a consultant paediatric urologist should be consulted.
Possible urological health concerns
Andrology comprises male health – and concerns the genitourinary organs of men. Too often, these organs are ignored until there is an issue. An enlarged prostate can create problems with urinating which may need medications and/or surgery. Erectile dysfunction and male infertility can be persistent and lead to marital unhappiness. Voiding dysfunction can be a debilitating and sometimes painful condition. Cancer – prostate, bladder, kidney or testicular – can be a frightening and critical concern.

Investigation and management of urological problems
For patients suffering from urological diseases and common conditions, the right diagnosis is essential. A highly skilled expert in urology will order the right kind of investigation with tests such as blood, urine, biopsy, scans and other investigative procedures. The treatment plan will need to be planned, according to the results. Some conditions may be treated with medications whereas others may need surgical interventions.
An expert urological consultant will know when medications are not sufficiently effective in providing relief and surgery may be needed. For prostate problems, surgery like transurethral resection of prostate, or laser prostatectomy may be necessary for optimal relief. When you are checking out urologists, it is best to check whether the latest cutting-edge treatment options for your urological concerns are available where you are going to get your treatment.
