An annual check-up is recommended starting at age 45 if there is no family history of urinary or prostate tumors. But if there are any, it is recommended to start the check-ups at the age of 40.
If you suffer some of the following problems you should immediately go to the specialist in urology:
It is also advisable that women undergo a urological check-up every 2 years, especially after menopause as the appearance of urine infections or problems such as urinary incontinence is more frequent.
Through this technique of non-invasive exploration, it is possible to carry out a study of the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract, assess their condition and detect the possible existence of pathologies. It is a painless and simple procedure for the patient who as a rule does not experience any discomfort.
For this test to be successful, it is necessary for the patient to drink about 3 glasses of water an hour before being carried out since the bladder should be semi-full. Fasting is not necessary; just take into account that the accumulation of intestinal gas hinders the correct visualization of the kidneys, so the intake of foods that can produce it is not recommended.
Thanks to renal ultrasound, disorders such as kidney stones, cysts, hydronephrosis or signs of kidney infection are often detected. The early detection of any pathology greatly facilitates its treatment so renal ultrasound is part of the routine tests carried out in the urological check-up.
Fluxometry is a simple test that allows the urologist to know, among other things, the capacity of the patient’s bladder, the strength of their urinary muscles or the current state of their urinary tracts.
It is usually prescribed to those patients who report difficulty to urinate and to all those who come to the urology clinic for the specialist to check the condition of their prostate.
The procedure is simple: the patient has to urinate, as usual, but in a special device that is in a bathroom intended for the realization of this test. You can take the time you need and you will find yourself alone and calm.
Fluxometry measures parameters such as maximum flow during urination, voiding volume, flow time or urination time. These data is reflected in a real-time chart so the patient does not have to wait to know their results.
Flexible Cystoscopy is a diagnostic test that examines the urethra, the prostate (in the case of men), the neck of the bladder, the inside of the bladder, and the urinary meatus.
It is performed quickly and easily thanks to a device called cystoscope that allows the urologist to view the scanned area through a screen. It is not painful for the patient since it is performed under local anesthesia or under sedation and the risk of complications is practically none.
This type of procedure is especially useful for evaluating patients who have had blood in their urine. It is also very effective in the evaluation of possible urinary fistulas or stenosis of the urethra, when there are suspicions of foreign bodies in the urethra or persistent irritative syndromes. In addition, it is the most important technique to check patients suffering from bladder cancer.
Endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery stands out for providing a solution to a wide variety of diseases through minimally invasive surgical techniques. Thanks to procedures without incisions or practicing the minimum possible ones, the patient is given a faster recovery, less painful and with good aesthetic results.
Endoscopic surgery is especially indicated to treat the following problems: bladder tumors, prostate disorders, stones and obstructions of the urethra. The laparoscopic technique is frequently used to treat tumors of the kidney, the urinary tract or the adrenal gland.
It is a minimally invasive and low risk procedure through which it is possible to remove or break the stones formed in the urinary system by endoscopic treatment. It stands out for being one of the most effective and least painful techniques for the treatment of kidney stones.
Vasectomy is a surgical operation aimed at male sterilization. It consists of blocking the channels that transport semen to prevent the passage of sperm from the testicles to the urethra.
It is a very popular procedure because of its effectiveness and few side effects. The most demanded technique is the so-called Vasectomy without scalpel since it is performed minimally invasive and provides the same results as the traditional technique.
The operation is not painful for the patient since it is performed under local anesthesia and recovery is fast.
It is important to note that this procedure does not prevent ejaculation. The patient will have the same volume of semen since it comes from the secretions of the seminal vesicle and the prostate. However, there will be a total absence of sperm in it.
With age, the size of the prostate increases and it is common that this growth affects the ability of the bladder to eliminate urine. As a result, symptoms such as the following appear:
The non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and is easily treated thanks to prostate surgery with green laser. It is a minimally invasive procedure whose results are as effective as traditional prostate surgery. With this system, hospital stay and recovery time can be minimized as well as minimizing the risk of complications.
