Common Urological Conditions
Both sexes experience conditions related to the urinary tract, bladder, kidneys and reproductive organs including:
- Painful bladder syndrome or PBS – Many think of PBS and interstitial cystitis as the same thing, although PBS is a broader term. The characteristics of both conditions involve pelvic pain (felt below your navel); sudden, intense and more frequent urges to urinate and waking up several times during the night to go to the toilet.
- Overactive bladder – This disorder occurs when a person regularly gets an unexpected and compelling need to pass urine. This sensation is awkward to put off, and this can happen at any time, often without any warning.
- Incontinence – The condition involves the unintentional passing of urine or feces. It’s a common problem which affects millions of people. Incontinence is often a symptom of a more severe
- Urinary tract infection or UTI – UTIs are prevalent in adults of all ages and can affect different parts of your urinary tract, including your bladder, urethra or kidneys. Women are more likely to contract a urinary tract infection as the female urethra is considerably shorter than a man’s urethra. UTI can usually be treated with antibiotics.
- Urethral stricture – This happens when the urethra is too restricted to allow for the adequate passage of urine.
- Kidney stones – Small, needle-like crystals formed from the build-up of uric acid, struvite, or calcium oxalate in the renal system are excreted via urine flow. Small kidney stones may go unnoticed, passing out painlessly in the urine. But it’s common for a kidney stone to block part of the urinary system causing significant pain in the abdomen or groin and sometimes causing a UTI.
