Home Conditions – Urology

Given below are details of some of the common urological conditions and associated conditions for which you can receive treatment from the hospital. Please note that you can consult our specialists for any other related symptoms not listed below are the conditions of urology:

General Urology

• Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)
Mostly found in older men, this is caused by an increase in the size of the prostate gland resulting in an enlarged prostate, but not directly related to prostate cancer. Common symptoms include urge for frequent urination, weak stream of urine and the feeling that the bladder is not empty. Your doctor will advise the treatment after necessary examination, which could be medication or in severe cases, a surgical procedure.

• Urinary incontinence
This is a loss of control over the urinary bladder leading to unwanted leakage of urine, caused by conditions such as overactive bladder, weak bladder muscles, enlarged prostate, diabetes, pregnancy & childbirth. Treatment, as directed by your doctor could be medication, change in lifestyle like controlling the fluid intake, or a surgery, if required.

• Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)
More commonly found in women, this is caused by pathogenic bacteria or viruses that cause infection in the urinary tract, resulting in a burning sensation during urination, as one of the common symptoms. Consult your doctor for treatment, that could include antibiotics.

• Kidney and Ureteral stones
Kidney stones occur when there are crystals in the urine and small particles collect around these crystals to form what is known as stones. Once the stones move from the kidney into the tube carrying urine (ureter) to the bladder, they are known as ureteral stones. The presence of stones blocks the passage of urine and causes considerable amount of pain to the patient. While small stones may be expelled from the tube in the natural body process, cases involving larger stones require medical and surgical intervention.

• Prolapsed bladder- A common urological conditions in women often caused by childbirth and menopause.
• Blood in the urine (Hematuria)
• Interstitial cystitis or painful bladder syndrome

Paediatric Urology

Paediatric urological conditions include those involving the genital and urinary tracts and are often developed as congenital. We provide the best treatment for such urological conditions that include:

• Antenatal hydronephrosis – a fluid filled enlargement of the kidney prior to birth and often detected through prenatal scanning.
• Hernia
• Hydrocele

• Nocturnal enuresis – bedwetting beyond a certain age
• Spina bifida
• Undescended testes
