Urology at Community Memorial Hospital
Do You Need to See a Urologist?
Urologists treat conditions and problems ranging from kidney stones to cancer. These specialists focus on the urinary system; kidneys, bladder, ureters (thin muscles that carry urine into your bladder) and urethra (tube that drains urine out of your bladder).
Urologists also treat the male reproductive system, which includes the penis, testes, scrotum, and prostate.
When Should You See a Urologist?
In some cases, your regular doctor may be able to treat mild urinary tract problems. But if your symptoms are severe or don’t go away, you’ll need to see a urologist. A urologist might treat bladder problems, urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder and kidney cancer, kidney blockage, and kidney stones.
Some of the signs include:
Blood in your urine
Loss of bladder control
Pain in your lower back, stomach, or groin (which can be kidney stones)
Trouble having or keeping an erection
Men might also see a urologist for:
Erectile dysfunction (ED)
Enlarged prostate gland
