What Is Urology?

Dr. Shawket Alkhayal, Urologist in Dubai

Urology is a medical speciality that deals with the treatment of urological diseases. Urological diseases refer to conditions that relate to the filtering and carrying of urine out of the body. These diseases can affect men, women and even children of all ages. Urological diseases can affect particular parts of the body, which can be mild or severe. In females, they mainly involve the urinary tract system, whereas, for males, they affect both the urinary tract system and the reproductive organs.

Doctors specialising in the field of urology are called urologists and are extensively trained to diagnose, detect and treat urological diseases and related conditions. Some urologists treat general urinary tract diseases, whereas some specialise in a particular type of urology.

Under the urinary tract system, urology covers parts such as kidneys, uterus, bladder urethra and adrenal glands. For male reproductive systems and genitals, urology involves parts such as the penis, prostate and testicles.

When To Consult A Urologist?

You can consult a urologist for any problems concerning your urinary tract, from mild urinary issues like urinary tract infections (UTI) to severe ailments like cancer. Males, in specific, can consult a urologist for any problems they experience in their reproductive system or genitals.

In most cases, your primary doctor will refer you to a urologist when certain your symptoms persist for long or don’t improve. Here are some common symptoms that indicate you need to visit a urologist.

  • A recurring need to urinate urgently
  • Burning sensation or pain during urination
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Pain in lower back, pelvis, or sides
  • Presence of blood in the urine (hematuria)
  • Urine leakage
  • Weak urine flow or dribbling

Apart from these, you should also visit a urologist if you are a man and have the following symptoms.

  • A lump in one of the testicles
  • Difficulty attaining or keeping an erection
  • Fertility issues
  • Elevated PSA
  • Pain in the testicles
  • Enlarged prostate
  • A decrease in sexual desires

Depending on your symptoms and related diagnoses, different treatment methods can be employed depending on the condition. Urological treatments can include both surgical and non-surgical options. While surgery is often suggested as a last resort, they are commonly carried out to remove tumours, kidney stones, parts of the kidney, strictures in the urethra, and kidney transplant.
