Many people are reluctant to see doctors. This is particularly worrisome, especially when it relates to the health of one urinary tract or reproductive organs. There are many urological conditions, including several types of cancer, which can be prevented from worsening through early diagnosis and proper treatment. There are quite a few reasons why some individuals are unwilling to see physicians like urologists. In particular, many older men actively avoid routine check-ups concerning their urinary and reproductive health simply because they are not accustomed to going to the doctor when they are younger. As a result, men who don’t see doctors as often as they should, sometimes overlook symptoms that could indicate a serious problem. Other times, these men may even dismiss the symptoms entirely, even though they are already aware that something might be wrong.
Men are generally more secretive when it comes to dealing with problems relating to their sex organs. It appears that men typically want to feel in control of their health issues, and they are unwilling to lose that sense of control by discussing sexual issues with doctors of their associates especially if they are women.
Is it treatable??
For treating such issues urologists come into the picture they perform examinations of the urinary tract and reproductive organ in order to diagnose infections, cancer, diseases, and disorders. Urologists are sometimes required to perform surgeries to remove kidney stones and other obstructions in the urinary tract that may be causing symptoms in the patients. If a patient is exhibiting signs of incontinence or other issues of the urinary system, they are sent to a urologist for a further examination. Urologists treat and diagnose patients with enlarged prostates, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, and prostatitis. Some urologists are also specially trained in reconstructive surgery, and they perform surgeries on genitalia abnormalities that are present at birth, as well as assist with patients that have been injured in an accident. They diagnose conditions in patients by the use of X-rays, fluoroscopes, blood and urine tests, ultrasounds, and catheters. They prescribe antibiotics to cure bladder infections in women and arthritis in men, and they perform various procedures to treat bladder and kidney cancers.
