Problems with the urogenital system can suddenly affect anyone, regardless of gender, age or profession. In winter, this issue is especially acute because it gets cold, shoes become wet from snow and rain, and the level of immunity decreases. These moments, of course, are not the cause of kidney or bladder disease, but contribute to their development.
Urology is a branch of medicine aimed at the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the urogenital system. A urologist consults both men and women.
The urogenital organs are:
in men and women, and
- prostate gland
- seminal vesicles and ducts
- testicles and penis
The kidneys are a paired organ of the urogenital system, and they are responsible for the processes of filtration and reabsorption of urine in the body. Then, through the ureters, urine enters the bladder, an unpaired muscular reservoir from which the product of the body’s vital functions is excreted through the urethra. The male urinary system is closely related to the genital tract, which is represented by the prostate, seminal ducts, testicles, and penis. The male reproductive system provides the production of semen and its secretion.
Usually, diseases of the urinary system begin acutely, with pain in the lumbar region or lower abdomen, cuts and pain during urination, the presence of fresh blood in the urine. Nausea or vomiting may sometimes occur and the temperature may rise. This indicates an acute disease – cystitis, urethritis, urolithiasis and others. In such conditions it is necessary to immediately consult a urologist at the clinic “Doctor” in Zaporizhia.
Diseases of the male reproductive system can also be acute inflammatory – such as orchitis, orchoepididymitis, but more often it is chronic inflammatory or proliferative processes – adenomas, prostatitis, malignancies, as well as disorders of organs and the system as a whole.
The field of urology includes a narrow specialty – andrology. Urologist-andrologist helps men with delicate problems related to impotence, erections, male infertility, sexually transmitted diseases.
The main diagnostic methods used in urology today are:
- General urine analysis
- Urethral swab
- Ultrasound diagnosis of the urogenital system
