Urinary Tract and Bladder Issues
Unfortunately, for adults, urinary tract and bladder issues are common. Both male and female patients in Stone Mountain can come to us for treatment regarding:
- Overactive bladder – Patients who have overactive bladders often experience leakage and incontinence. This condition is often caused by infections, bladder abnormalities, an enlarged prostate, neurological disorders, excessive alcohol or caffeine or diabetes.
- Painful bladder syndrome or PBS – Many people often use the terms PBS and interstitial cystitis, but interstitial cystitis is a more specific condition. The mild to severe discomfort felt in the bladder in both conditions can make life a challenge.
- Kidney stones – While some kidney stones, which are crystalline salts forming in the kidneys or urinary tract, may be small and not noticeable, others may be extremely painful.
- Urethral stricture – When the urethra has become too narrow for smooth urine passage, a urethral stricture is present.
- Incontinence – Most patients will experience stress incontinence, overflow incontinence, fecal incontinence or urge incontinence. This is typically a symptom of a larger condition.
- Urinary tract infection or UTI – UTIs are a common condition that can typically be treated with antibiotics.
Male Reproductive and Fertility Issues
Both females and males have health concerns about sexuality and fertility. Each year in America, infertility is affecting more and more couples who wish to start a family. Advanced Urology treats the following male conditions:
- Low testosterone – Decreased libido and energy are common symptoms of hypogonadism or low testosterone.
- ED or erectile dysfunction – ED is a common condition for a lot of men, but it is fairly easy to treat.
- Male infertility – Male infertility can be a factor that affects 7.5 percent of couples.
Other Urological Conditions
There are a number of urological health conditions that are not cancer and are unrelated to reproductive health or the bladder/urinary tract. We also treat the following conditions for Stone Mountain residents:
- Prostate conditions – Men have to concern themselves with other prostate conditions besides prostate cancer. A number of men have issues with prostatitis (inflamed prostate) or benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). These two conditions have many of the same symptoms so it’s crucial to have your prostate checked regularly.
- Pelvic organ prolapse – Pelvic organ prolapse or POP is a condition that affects women who have given birth by causing pain in the lower abdomen and vagina.
