What is



Urology is a branch of medicine which deals with the urinary system in women and the genitourinary system in men. Urological diseases are becoming more common as the population continues to age.

What are urological diseases?

Urological diseases can be very different in nature. Urologists take into account all of the functions of the urinary tract and are trained to perform surgery as well as treat by means of medicine. Often, urologists specialize to become experts in a narrower field within urology, for example urological cancer. Urological diseases include the following:

Kidney and ureteral stones
Benign prostatic enlargement
Kidney cancer
Prostate cancer
Bladder cancer
Testicular cancer
Penis cancer
Urethral cancer

Overactive bladder symptoms
Urinary incontinence
Sexual dysfunction
(such as erectile dysfunction)
Male infertility
Pelvic pain
Urological infections

How do I make an appointment with a urologist?

If you have any concerns about your health you should go to your general practitioner or family doctor, who will evaluate your situation. If necessary, you will be referred to a urologist.
