Urology Disorders Q & A

What are urology disorders?

Urology disorders, or urologic diseases, are ailments that affect the kidneys, urinary tract, or reproductive system. 

If you experience symptoms like difficulty urinating, persistent pelvic pain, or frequent, involuntary urine voids, it’s important to seek professional medical help. The earlier urology disorders are diagnosed, the easier they are to treat.

What are some common urology disorders?

At Hemet Valley Urology Medical Center, the team treats a variety of urology disorders,  including:

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction makes it difficult to get or maintain an erection long enough to have sex. Sometimes, it’s due to the natural aging process; other times, it points to a more serious underlying health problem like high blood pressure or diabetes.

Kidney stones

Kidney stones are hard deposits of minerals, salt, and acid that form inside the kidneys. They’re characterized by intense abdominal pain and nausea. Often, kidney stones pass through the urine. Larger stones may require targeted in-office treatment or surgical removal.

Testicular, prostate, and bladder cancer

Urologic cancers cause the cells within specific parts of the urinary system to divide and multiply uncontrollably, destroying the healthy existing tissue. Treatment of these cancers depends on your age, their severity, and your overall health. 

Urinary infections

Urinary infections occur when harmful bacteria enter a part of the urinary system like the bladder or urethra. Anyone can experience a urinary infection, but they’re especially common in women and girls.

Enlarged prostate

An enlarged prostate is a common problem that affects men 60 and older. Researchers aren’t sure why the prostate grows, but it’s considered a normal part of the natural aging process. 

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence causes the involuntary leakage of urine. There are several types of incontinence, all of which respond to conservative, noninvasive measures of care.

Kidney disease

Kidney disease prevents your kidneys from adequately filtering your blood. Over time, that causes a build-up of toxins, increasing the risk of more serious health problems.
