The urinary tract (which is connected to the sexual system) is highly susceptible to various infections and inflammations. An urologist is a doctor who deals with, among other things:
- inflammation of the male and female urinary tract,
- erectile dysfunction,
- bladder abnormalities - for example, incontinence,
- prostate hypertrophy,
- external diseases of the male genital organs, such as the testicular watermelon or the stulejka.
Such conditions are not only very uncomfortable, they are associated with many unpleasant symptoms. First of all, they can develop into chronic, but also life-threatening conditions, which will be really difficult to treat. A visit to a specialist is not terrible and usually lasts unexpectedly short. It allows for the assessment of the situation, as well as the implementation of the necessary treatment in a given case.
