Posted by AnneGonzalez on September 19th, 2019

Sexual dysfunction, incontinence, frequent urination and other chronic problems can be embarrassing and painful. Advanced Urology provides life-changing treatments for both men and women with one urological condition or the other. Are you still wondering why you should visit a urologist, here are some reasons to visit a urologist?

1.     Blood in Your Urine: Visit Advanced Urology to contact the right urologist without hesitation whenever you detect blood in your urine. Normal urine is either colorless or pale yellow. However, pink, brown, or tea-colored urine could be an indication of blood in the urine, and a urologist should be consulted when this happens. Blood in urine could be a temporary condition which could be caused by a vigorous exercise or an injury. Bloody urine could also be a potential pointer to a serious condition like kidney stone, kidney infection, bladder, kidney or prostate cancer, and bladder infection.

2.     Poor Bladder Control: The loss of bladder control or the presence of poor bladder control can lead to urinary incontinence, and this is an embarrassing problem. This condition can lead to an occasional leakage of urine especially when you either sneeze or cough. It could also result in a sharp and sudden urge to urinate. Do not hesitate to visit a urologist when this affects your daily activity. 

3.     Painful Urination: This usually occurs in women and is as a result of a urinary tract infection. It is most common in men, and it is as a result of urethritis or other prostate conditions. The major causes of painful urination include cystitis, kidney stones, yeast infection, chlamydia, vaginal infection, bladder stones, and sexually transmitted infections. A urologist should be visited whenever painful urination is experienced. 

4.     Pain in your Groin Region, Lower Stomach, or Side of Back: Pain in any of this region is a sign of kidney stones. The specific symptoms associated with this include blood in urine, nausea, vomiting, fever due to infection, pain when standing, pain when sitting, and painful urinating. These symptoms are an indication of urological conditions therefore, consulting a urologist is essential whenever a symptom is observed.

5.     Overactive Bladder (OAB): This is also a cause of urinary incontinence, and it can negatively impact your daily life, sleep, relationships with family and friends, and work. You would know you have an overactive bladder when you notice that you frequently urinate, pain in your lower back, blood in your urine or when you see a burning sensation while you urinate. Always endeavor to visit a urologist whenever any of these symptoms are noticed. 

6.     Hernia: Symptoms of hernia are usually hard to detect. A bulge which is noticeable when standing is usually created by a hernia, and this should be reported to a urologist when noticed.
