A urologist is a medical professional who treats the disorders related to the urinary tract in men and women, and the male reproductive system.

These disorders can affect anybody, men, women, and even children of all ages. However, these disorders affect only a few distinguished parts of the body. For instance, in women, it is the urinary tract and in men, it is either the urinary tract or the male reproductive organ.
This is a condition where the prostate becomes enlarged, i.e. the size of the prostate gland increases. This disorder is generally very common in older men. However, it is not exactly associated with prostate cancer. The symptoms of this condition include;

In this condition, you lose the control of your bladder, which can cause leakage of urine. It is not only embarrassing, but it can also cause inconvenience. However, it is a very common condition, and almost 50 million people in our country suffer from it. Few of the cause for this condition include; diabetes, pregnancy, childbirth, a bladder that is overactive or weak, sphincter muscles that are weak, urinary tract infection, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal injury, and serious constipation.
There are five types of urinary incontinence; stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence, functional incontinence, and mixed incontinence.
Kidney and ureteral stones
Kidney stones develop when the crystals present in the urine and the particles around it accumulate to form stones. When these stones travel from the kidney to the ureter, they are known as ureteral stones. These stones stop the flow of urine and can even cause pain. If the stone is extremely small, it can exit from the body without any medical intervention. But, with larger stones, medical or surgical procedures are required to remove them. The symptoms of kidney stones are; pain in back, belly, or sides, feeling pain or burning while urinating, urgent and frequent need to go to the bathroom, blood in urine, smelly or cloudy urine, passing small amounts of urine, vomiting, nausea, chills, and fever.
Erectile dysfunction (ED)
Erectile dysfunction is a disorder where you are unable to get an erection or maintain one to have sexual intercourse. Mostly, men experience occasional ED during stressful times and it is very common. The symptoms of this disorder are; trouble keeping an erection, not able to maintain an erection in order to have sex, and low sex drive. Other conditions associated with ED are; premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, and anorgasmia.
