Urology covers any disorders of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, prostate as well as the male reproductive organs.
Medical problems of the female urinary system and the male genitourinary tract include more minor urinary tract infections to more serious conditions like kidney stones, prostate cancer or bladder cancer.
Urological conditions are relatively common and account for up to 10% of all GP consultations and up to 20% of acute hospital referrals. Procedures include removal of an organ like the bladder, kidney or prostate to treat cancer, a vasectomy (male sterilisation) or the removal of kidney stones.
Chat to a GP about your symptoms and concerns. They can advise whether you need to see a urologist.
