Urology is the part of health care that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract (kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra). It also deals with the male reproductive organs (penis, testes, scrotum, prostate, etc. Since health problems in these body parts can happen to everyone, urologic healthcare is one of the most important healthcare Urology is a surgical speciality. Besides surgery, a urologist is a doctor with the knowledge of internal medicine, paediatrics and other parts of health care. This is because a urologist encounters a wide range of clinical problems.The scope of urology is big and the Indian Urological Association has named these subspecialty parts:
Many men aren't sure what their prostate is, what it does . It is a small gland that is part of the male reproductive system. It's supposed to be about the shape and size of a walnut. It rests below your bladder and in front of your rectum. It surrounds part of the urethra, the tube in your penis that carries pee from your bladder. The prostate helps make some of the fluid in semen, which carries sperm from your testicles when you ejaculate.
It happens because of an increase in the number of cells in your prostate gland. This is thought to be caused by hormonal changes as you get older. Benign means it is not cancer. BPH is unusual in men under 45, but it becomes more common as you get older. By the age of 60, four in 10 men are affected and by 90, nine out of 10 men have an enlarged prostate.
Yes. High levels of sodium, calcium, protein, vitamins C and D, and oxalate-rich foods (dark vegetables, chocolate, nuts, cranberries and coffee and tea, for example) can increase your chances of developing stones. In general, it's a good idea to eat less salt and to consult a doctor or dietitian about how much calcium you need daily. If you have had an oxalate kidney stone, consider limiting oxalate-rich foods. In addition to the ones above, others include spinach, colas, peanuts, beets, rhubarb, berries, beans, tofu, oranges, sweet potatoes and draft beer.
Drink lots of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice. Lemon juice contains citric acid, which not only inhibits stone formation but also breaks up small stones as they begin to form. Generally, the more citric acid in your urine, the more protected you are against forming new kidney stones. The most common cause of stones is insufficient daily water intake. You should drink enough water to keep your urine clear about eight to 10 glasses a day.
TURP is a urological operation. It is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia. Medications can help most men with an enlarged prostate, but for some, they might not always be enough to ease symptoms such as weak urine flow and dribbling. When you are one of those men,you have surgical options to treat your BPH.
Kidney stones are formed in the urinary tract due to crystallization of chemical compounds in the urine. PCNL is a technique used to remove certain stones in the kidney or upper ureter (the tube that drains urine from the kidney to the bladder. This procedure has been performed on many patients over the last several years and is accepted standard of care for patients with kidney stones that are large, very firm, or resistant to other forms of stone treatment. As such it has replaced open operations for kidney stones in the vast majority of patients.
