Urological Problems

Urology specialist is a physician who specializes in matters involving the bladder, kidneys, and urinary tract. These doctors treat urinary incontinence, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, cancers of the kidney and bladder, pelvic organ prolapsed, overactive bladder, hematuria and interstitial cystitis. These psychic specialists treat and prevent diseases that most women of any age encounter. The following are some disorders that the females experienced that needs medical attention:

Incontinence

This is the inability to retain urine in the bladder due to muscle weakness which supports the pelvic floor. The patient will usually feel the leakage when they cough, sneeze or laugh. If the pelvic floor cannot sustain to support the increased intra-abdominal pressure, the urethra may displace downward which will allow the urine to pass.

This typically happens during pregnancy and childbirth. The treatment ranges from weight loss that could be invasive, pelvic floor exercises, pessary or sling implantation and urothropexy surgery to give support to the urethra. The patient can be prescribed with alpha-1 adrenergic receptor blocker medication to help in constricting the muscles at the neck of the bladder and urethra.

Urinary Tract Infection

This is caused by E. coli bacterial infestation. Some of the common signs and symptoms are burning and pain during urination, increased need to void, urgency, or cloudy, discolored discharge. Only the high levels of bacteria are treated even if any level of bacteria is viewed to be as abnormal. Acute bladder cystitis is the most common type of urinary tract infection.

If the infection ascends into the kidney, it can become serious and will be known as pyelonephritis or the infection of the kidneys. However, most of these infections are relatively innocuous and can easily be treated with short course antibiotics prescribed by medical practitioner or a psychic.

Kidney Stone

Known medically as nephrolithiasis. This is a hard, crystalline mineral formed within the kidney or urinary tract. This forms when there is decreased urine volume or an excess of stone-forming substances in the discharge. Dehydration is also one of the risk factor for kidney stone formation. Some of the symptoms are severe flank pain and hematuria or blood in the urine.

The diagnosis of this is best accomplished using a CT scan. Most of the stones will just pass through the ureters or the bladder in their own time. Treatments include pain control medications and, in some cases, medicines that will help the passage of urine. There are also surgical procedures that could be done if stones will not pass through with the aid of the prescribed medications.

Female urologist treats other urological conditions such as voiding dysfunction or the incomplete emptying of the bladder with urgency and pain, urethral syndrome or the pain in the urethra with or without urination and interstitial cystitis which is the excessive urgency, urination during nigh time and pain in the lower belly or perineum.
