When you visit the urologist for the first time, a consultation is the primary step. The doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms and lifestyle. A physical examination is also sometimes required to further evaluate your condition.
Based on this consultation, the doctor may suggest some diagnostic tests that help in pinpointing your problem and suggesting proper treatment. Some of the tests have been explained below.
- Blood Tests
There are several blood tests that are useful for diagnosis in urology. These include tests for cancer and kidney function.
- Urine Tests
There are many urine tests that can be performed to diagnose disease or monitor treatment. Some of the common tests are a urinalysis, urine culture and sensitivity and 24-hour urine tests.
- Urinalysis is performed using a dipstick to detect and measure parameters like blood, sugar, protein and other substances in the urine. Microscopic examination of the urine sample is used to find blood cells, crystals, bacteria, yeast and other substances that may be present.
- Urine cultures are laboratory tests performed when a urinary tract infection is suspected. The culture is incubated for several hours to reveal whether bacteria are present in urine and the type of the same. Sensitivity studies are performed that determine which antibiotics will be useful in treating the infection.
- 24-hour urine tests help in detecting many disease processes. All urine expelled by the patient in a 24-hour period is collected and analysed for abnormal levels of the many substances that are filtered from the bloodstream by the kidneys.
Ultrasound is used to examine kidneys, bladder and testicles. It helps in diagnosing conditions like cysts, lumps, tumours, stones, kidney enlargement and abnormalities in the bladder and urethra.
- X-Ray and CT Scan
X-rays help in getting detailed images of urinary tract, bladder and kidneys. CT Scans are highly sensitive X-Rays. Different types of X-ray may be performed depending on the requirement of the patient’s case.
This test is useful to look into the patient’s bladder. A small telescopic probe is inserted into the urethra to observe any abnormalities like tumours or stones.
- Urine Flow Study
This is to determine the rate and force of urination. An abnormal flow study may indicate obstruction in urinary tract or issue with prostate.
Pressure-measuring catheters are inserted into the rectum and bladder to measure muscle tone and nerve activity of the bladder during urination.
This test is performed in case of suspected cancer. Tissue is obtained under anaesthesia with ultrasound guidance and tested for presence of cancerous cells.
- Blood Tests
Based on the results of the recommended diagnostic tests, your doctor will have a consultation with you and suggest further course of action. Continental Hospitals is the best hospital for urology in Hyderabad, with the latest equipment and facilities for diagnostic testing and evaluation.
After diagnosis, your urologist will be able to clearly determine the course of treatment best suited for your case. With immense advancement in the field of medicine, there are many invasive as well as non-invasive treatment options available for urological conditions. Some of the conditions and possible treatments have been listed below.
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)
These are a result of bacteria or viruses present in the urinary tract causing infection. UTIs are more common in women than in men. Burning sensation, lower back pain and frequent urination are typical of UTI. The most effective treatment is antibiotic prescription which usually clears the infection in 5 to 7 days.
- Kidney Stones
Kidney stones occur when there are crystals in urine around which particles deposit to make kidney stones. These can block the flow of urine and be quite painful. Smaller stones can sometimes be expelled through urine without medical intervention but larger stones can be problematic. Medical or surgical procedures are recommended to expel stones from the body. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy is also commonly used, where sound waves are used to break stones into smaller pieces, making them easier to pass.
- Urinary Incontinence
This condition is the loss of bladder control which results in unwanted leakage of urine. This is a common condition that can be caused due to underlying factors such as diabetes, pregnancy or childbirth, weak bladder muscles, enlarged prostate, diseases like Parkinson’s or multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury etc. Lifestyle changes may be effective in solving the problem in some cases. Alternately your doctor may suggest surgical intervention to correct the underlying cause.
- Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)
This condition is commonly called enlarged prostate. Increase in size of prostate is common in older men and is not directly connected to prostate cancer. An enlarged prostate places additional pressure on the urethra, through which the urine passes. This causes a frequent urge to urinate and feeling that the bladder is not empty. Medication is prescribed in most cases and surgery may be recommended for severe cases.
This is presence of blood in the urine. The condition may be gross hematuria, where blood is clearly visible in urine, or microscopic hematuria, where blood cells can only be observed in urine sample under a microscope. This condition is indicative of other urological problems like UTIs, side effects of certain medicines, heavy workout or more serious issues like cancers, kidney disease or trauma. Microscopic hematuria is mostly not life threatening. In case of gross hematuria, course of treatment is suggested after further investigations to find out the exact cause.
Cancer of the prostate, bladder and kidneys is handled by urologists in association with oncologists. Healthy cells grow out of control to form lumps or tumours and hamper kidney function. Urological cancers can be treated if detected at an earlier stage with oncology treatments like medication and surgery and lifestyle changes.
- Interstitial Cystitis
This is also known as painful bladder syndrome. This condition is many a times confused with UTIs, but in interstitial cystitis, pain during urination occurs without any underlying infection. Medication, physiotherapy and biofeedback treatment have been found to be helpful. But the condition can be managed but not cured.
- Renal Failure
This is a condition where kidney lose their ability to function. This is a serious condition where waste is unable to leave the body by way of urine. Dialysis is recommended for management of renal failure. Renal transplant or kidney transplant surgery is helpful in greatly improving the quality of life of the patient.
