Prostate Enlargement

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), most commonly known as prostate enlargement, is a medical condition that affects almost half of men above 50 years of age.

Prostate is a walnut shaped gland in men situated at the bottom of the bladder surrounding the urethra. It grows throughout a man’s life but when it becomes too enlarged, it blocks the flow of urine through the urethra.

Men with enlarged prostate experience common symptoms like more frequent urination at night, poor stream of urine, difficulty in initiating urination and inability to empty bladder.

It is important to consult a urologist before the prostate becomes too enlarged and makes it impossible to pass urine at all.

Kidney, Ureteric and Bladder stones

Persistent urge to urinate, inability to pass urine and a dull or severe pain in the flank area is often an indication of kidney or ureteric stone. These stones are usually formed due to lack of fluid intake in the body.

One should come for treatment of kidney, bladder and ureteric stones as early as possible because the longer they are inside the body, the higher is the risk of serious complications like blockage of the urinary tract.

Urinary Tract Infections

Infection in any part of the urinary system is referred to as Urinary Tract Infection. It is caused when bacteria enter the urinary tract and start multiplying inside the urinary system.

UTIs can be painful and annoying but if left untreated, they can lead to serious consequences. Therefore, it is important to consult a urologist whenever you experience symptoms like a burning sensation while urinating or a strong-smelling urine.

Blood in urine

Hematuria or blood in urine can have different meanings. In some cases it is a harmless consequence of kidney stones or a Urinary Tract Infection but in other cases it might indicate a serious disorder like bladder cancer.
