Urological check What does it consist of?
The urologist in West Delhi is the specialist doctor in the urinary system and the male reproductive system. It is who is responsible for treating diseases such as kidney stones, bladder and prostate problems, urine infections or male sexual problems. One of the pathologies that belong to the field of urology is prostate cancer and with a view to preventing and diagnosing it as soon as possible, it is necessary for men to get used to going to the urologist in Palam every year after a certain age.
The visit to the urologist, an unusual practice
In India, approximately 47% of men have never had a urological check-up, although 72% know that prostate cancer is the second most common cause of death among men after lung cancer. 65% of the cases that the risk of suffering from prostate cancer increases after 50 years. Most do not go to consultation for lack of interest or lack of knowledge of the need, while 4% admit not to do so due to apprehension. There is still a certain shame today to go to a urologist in Dwarka who takes care of such an intimate part of the male, a taboo that women have already overcome to see clearly the benefits that entail for their health the annual visit to the gynecologist.
When is it advisable to perform a urological check?
It is recommended that men undergo an annual urological checkup starting at age 50 if there is no history of urinary or prostate tumors in the family, or from the 40 if these antecedents exist. This review will allow the detection in less advanced stages of potentially serious urological problems such as prostate, bladder or testicular tumors, and other pathologies such as benign prostatic hyperplasia or erectile dysfunction.
Although an annual check-up by urologist in Janakpuri is recommended, some warning symptoms should be taken into accounts that should make the man go to the urologist before, such as difficulty or discomfort to urinate, the presence of blood in the urine or sperm, pain in the testicles or perineum and disorders of erection or ejaculation.
A kidney stone is a hard mass that is formed in the Kidney from substances in the urine. These can be as small as a grain of sand or as big as half of the palm of a hand.
Most kidney stones are removed through the urinary tract, but sometimes they do not come out spontaneously and a doctor's care is needed. Here, when they get stuck in the urinary tract, they can cause a lot of pain.
A calculation can produce:
- Severe pain in the back or side
- Blood in the urine
- Fever and chills
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Urine with a bad smell or cloudy
- Burning when urinating
Treatments: There are different kidney stone treatment in Palam, Janakpuri, Dwarka, Uttam Nagar, Hari Nagar, West Delhi available. However, the best option will depend on the type of calculation, its size, location, and the patient's discomfort.
Prevention: Drink plenty of water. Water helps to eliminate the substances that form stones or kidney stones. If you have had a stone before, talk with your doctor about other ways to avoid new apparitions. Even, it consults by a study that allows detecting alterations in the metabolism (functioning of the organism).
What is the urological checkup?
A visit to the urologist in Uttam Nagar entails a questioning about the patient's urinary and sexual habits, a physical examination, which should include the penis, testicles and prostate through a digital rectal examination, and a blood test to determine the prostate-specific antigen (PSA), which will allow the specialist to assess a possible prostatic involvement, either by benign enlargement of size or by a neoplasm. In case of any alteration, the urologist will be responsible for requesting other examinations such as an ultrasound, a flowmetry (which allows studying the patient's way of urinating) or a prostate biopsy.
If alterations of sexual desire, erection or ejaculation are detected, the urologist in Hari Nagar can also carry out other studies such as analytical to assess hormone levels, imaging tests to observe the integrity of the urethral tract or evaluate the vascular functioning of the penis if there would be erection problems.
It should be noted that women should also visit kidney hospital in West Delhi in case of suffering a disorder as frequent as urinary incontinence. Also, the presence of blood in the urine or discomfort when urinating should also make the woman into the hands of the urologist.
It is necessary that men end their reluctance to undergo a urological check and see it as a routine visit from a certain age that can provide a health benefit and a better quality of life.
