Urologist in Delhi
The urinary tract is basically the drainage system of your body to remove all the urine. Urine is made of waste and water. Kidney, ureters, and bladder together make up the urinary tract. When diseases or infections take place in the urinary tract, they are categorized as urologic diseases. At Apollo Spectra, you will find the best urologist in Delhi.
• Kidney Infection
Also known as pyelonephritis, kidney infection is one type of the urinary tract infection. It generally starts at the bladder and moves further to either one or two kidneys. In very rare scenarios, it can lead to severe health conditions. To prevent any complications, it is important to get the condition treated immediately. The most common symptoms are; chills, fever, blood or pus in urine, low desire to eat, pain in lower back, side, and even groin, fatigue, and pain during urination.
• Penile Curvature (Peyronie’s disease)
Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which the scar tissue, known as the plaque, grows inside the penis, i.e. the male reproductive organ. As the plaque grows inside the tissue of a membrane called the tunica albuginea, which is thick and elastic. The most common location where the plaque occurs is the top or the bottom of the penis. If there is a plaque build-up, you may notice a curve or a bend in the penis. The most common symptoms of this disorder are; painful intercourse, unable to have sex, inflammation, and swelling.
• Perineal Injury in men
Perineal injury occurs between the anus and the genitals, hence, in men, this area is between the scrotum and the anus. The scrotum is the outer sac, which holds the testicles. If the injury or damage takes place all of a sudden, it is known as an acute injury. And, it is gradual, it is known as chronic injury. It is a very important part of the male reproductive system because it carries blood vessels and nerves that supply the urinary tract and genitals with blood and nerve signals. This injury can lead to bladder control problems and sexual disorders. Hence, it is important to get it tested if you notice the following symptoms; genital pain, anal or rectal pain, pain in the groin, lower back pain, feeling uncomfortable while sitting, pain after bowel movements, frequent urination, and burning sensation while urinating.
• Urinary retention
This disorder is the inability to completely empty the bladder. It can be both acute and chronic. During acute retention, the period of the disorder is short and happens all of a sudden. However, with chronic retention, it can turn into a lifelong medical condition. Although with a chronic condition, patients can urinate, they are unable to empty their bladder completely. When it is not treated on time, it can develop into other conditions, which include; urinary incontinence and urinary tract infection.
• Urinary Diversion
Urinary diversion is a surgical procedure that corrects the route of the normal urine flow when it is blocked. There are various reasons for this blockage, which include; enlarged prostate, injury to the urethra, birth defects related to the urinary tract, stones in kidney, ureter, or bladder, tumors, and external pressure.
• Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
This disorder is when you lose control over the muscles of your pelvic floor. The pelvic floor consists of a group of muscles and ligaments present in the pelvic region. The pelvic floor holds all the organs in the pelvis, i.e. bladder, rectum, and either uterus or prostate. The symptoms of this condition include; urinary issues, constipation, strains while performing bowel movement, lower back pain, pain in the pelvic region, muscle spasms in the pelvic region.
• Pelvic organ prolapse
It is one type of pelvic floor disorder, where the pelvic organs start droops down towards the vagina. These organs include; the bladder, uterus, vagina, small bowel, and rectum. The main causes are pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, obesity, respiratory problems, constipation, pelvic organ cancer, and hysterectomy.
