What is urology and what are urologic conditions?

Urology is a medical speciality that treats diseases of the male and female urinary system (kidneys and bladder). Specialist doctors in this field of medicine are referred to as urologists, and they work with nurses and technicians in diagnosing and treating patients with urologic diseases.

Urologic conditions refer to a variety of conditions which relate to the filtering and carrying of urine out of the body. These can affect men and women of all ages, as well as children.

Urologic diseases affect the urinary tract, and sometimes the reproductive organs. In females, they usually only involve the urinary tract, whereas in males they can affect both.

Medical conditions such as urinary tract infections or benign prostatic hyperplasia will require careful management from a urology team, while conditions such as cancer, congenital abnormalities, and stress incontinence may require surgical intervention.

Did you know?

Urine’s yellow colour is due to a substance called bilirubin. It is formed when the liver breaks down old red blood cells which are then excreted from the body through the urine along with other waste products.
