The Importance of Having a Urologist
How your urologists in Jacksonville can help you
So why do you need a urologist? Urologists are specialists who diagnose and treat conditions and diseases of the urinary tract. Urinary tract problems are common, so you may need to seek out the services of an expert in the field of Urology. Dr. Ahmad Kasraeian or Dr. Ali Kasraeian at Kasraeian Urology want to share some of the reasons why it’s important to have a urologist. They have several convenient office locations in Jacksonville, FL to help you.
People often see a urologist because of signs or symptoms like these:
- Blood in your urine
- Difficult or painful urination
- Leaking urine when you cough or sneeze
- Pain in your abdomen, pelvis, or groin area
- Protruding, fallen bladder
- Pain during intercourse
- Lower back pain or pain on the side of your back
Any of these signs or symptoms could be an indication of something more serious. Urologists treat annoying, painful, or serious medical conditions like these:
- Overactive bladder
- Enlarged prostate
- Erectile dysfunction
- Kidney or bladder stones
- Bladder, kidney, or urinary tract infection
- Kidney, bladder, or prostate cancer
- Sexually transmitted infections and diseases
- Inflammation of the prostate
It’s important to visit your urologist if you notice any of the signs or symptoms listed above. Not seeking treatment can result in kidney or bladder damage, prostate cancer, and other serious medical conditions.
When you visit your urologist, he may order lab tests to check your kidney function, blood cell counts, hormone levels, or PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels. He may also recommend medical imaging of your kidneys, prostate, bladder, or other organs.
