What is Urology?


Urology is a discipline of medicine concerned with the urinary tract (kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra) and male reproductive organs such as the prostate, seminal vesicles and penis. Around one quarter of all surgical referrals to hospital and a fifth of all GP consultations are for urological conditions. But nine out of ten patients referred to a urologist do not need surgery, and can be managed medically instead.Read more :biomedica-servicii.ro

Urologists treat a wide variety of conditions including cancer, inflammatory diseases and urinary incontinence. They diagnose problems using a range of tests such as urine samples, blood work and x-rays. They also perform several procedures including cystoscopy which involves looking at the inside of your bladder and urethra using a thin telescope-like tool called a cystoscope. They may also use a test called urodynamics to measure how fast your body is emptying your bladder and how much pressure there is in it.
