5 Common Urology Ailments You Must Know!

The urologic system includes all problems related to the urinary system including the kidneys, bladder, ureters, urethra, and the prostate. These problems could range from trauma, injury, inflammation, infections, and muscular problems like overactive bladder, prostate hypertrophy, sexual disorders (candidiasis, erectile dysfunction, etc.), tumors or overgrowths, infections of any part along the entire tract, and even erectile dysfunction.

Let us quickly look at the most common ones kidney stones, urinary tract infections, prostate enlargement, erectile dysfunction, and vaginal candidiasis.

  1. Kidney stones: These are calcium deposits, which can seat themselves in any part of the kidney and sometimes even in the ureter. These can cause significant sharp, shooting pain in the back of the abdomen. The pain is almost diagnostic, and while small stones may pass on their own, others may require shock wave lithotripsy to break the bigger ones into smaller ones, which can then pass on their own through urine. Dietary modifications may also be required to prevent the formation of stones, as most people tend to have recurrence of stones.
  2. Prostate hypertrophy: One of the most common problems faced by ageing men is benign prostatic enlargement (BPH). There would be a constant urge to urinate, simultaneous difficulty initiating a stream and a feeling of incomplete emptying. These happen more at night, and diagnosis is very easy, any elderly male who shows these symptoms is almost diagnostic of BPH. This requires a standard surgical procedure known as transurethral resection of the prostate, which is a same-day surgery and quite non-complicated.
  3. Urinary tract infections: This is one of the most common infections, which can be acquired from the use of public bathrooms and unhygienic bathroom practices. There is chance for infection of the entire tract starting from the urethra to the ureter, the bladder, and the kidney. These run the course of any infection. Treatment is usually with a course of oral antibiotics along with symptomatic treatment of the other symptoms like fever, muscle ache, etc. In very rare cases, systemic antibiotics may be required.
  4. Erectile dysfunction: One of the most common, but undisclosed male sexual problem is erectile dysfunction. There is inability of the male to achieve and/or sustain an erection, sufficient to have a satisfactory sexual intercourse. This has both physical and psychological reasons, and may also be due to hormonal imbalance. Very often, a discussion with a counselor would be required to treat the couple, as involving the partner is very important.
  5. Vaginal candidiasis: The normal vaginal flora is very rich with the fungi Candida, and when immunity is low, candidiasis develops. There could be symptoms like foul-smelling discharge, itching, and redness. A course of topical antifungal agents is usually effective in treating this condition.

September Is the Urology Awareness Month

September is the Urology Awareness Month. Let's know more about the same.

  • Urology conditions are often associated with a stigma. There are cases wherein one suffers from a urology issue, and still, one might choose to suffer silently instead of trying to find the suitable treatment. It is embarrassment and fear which prevent one from discussing these issues.
  • One might be apprehensive to discuss the issue with his doctor. At times, it might so happen that one may be apprehensive to discuss the issue with his family members as well.
  • It is hence very important to spread awareness about urology issues. One need not suffer unnecessarily, and one must get the required medical aid or assistance, which would enable one to get over the underlying issues.
  • A significant part of urology is the prostate gland and disorders afflicting the same.
  • Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer which afflicts men. A very surprising stat in this regard is that one in every eight men is diagnosed with prostate cancer.
  • But another stat contradicting the first one is that only 40,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. This just goes to show that a large number of people suffer from the disorder, and still choose to suffer in silence.
  • That is what makes the Urology Awareness Month all the more important.
  • Every year, the Urology Awareness Month makes us more aware about:

Risk Factors and Symptoms of urology issues which affect the people.
While the Urology Awareness Month passes, initiatives are made to educate the people on issues concerning:

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Bladder Cancer
  • Bladder prolapsed
  • Blood in the urine, in a condition also known as Hematuria
  • ED or Erectile Dysfunction
  • Painful Bladder Syndrome or the Interstitial Cystitis
  • Overactive bladder
  • Swelling of the Prostate Gland, which is a condition called prostatitis.
  • Some other types of cancers which are rarer than prostate cancer are:
  • Kidney cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Causes and risk factors are variable for each type of cancer. But there are some symptoms of these cancers which all people should be aware of. This would make sure that one is fast to act if one comes to realize that any of the symptoms are present in his being.

Some common risk factors which are associated with urological cancers include:

Exposure to certain chemicals
Smoking

Similarly, some studies have shown that urological cancers could be genetic. One is at a higher risk of being afflicted by a urological cancer if one's parents or siblings are diagnosed with the same.
Some common signs and symptoms of urological cancers which everyone should be aware of include:

  • Painful or frequent urination
  • Passing blood along with urine
  • A sudden urge to urinate
  • Lumps in the abdomen
  • Reduction in appetite
  • High fever

If you happen to notice any of these symptoms in your everyday life, you should seek medical attention with immediate effect.
These symptoms might be reflective of some other critical medical conditions, if not urological cancers. But one must make sure that one gets in touch with a doctor as soon as one notices these symptoms.

In particular for issues relating with urology, if a disorder is diagnosed early, it is a lot easier to figure out the right course of treatment.

Let's run through some interesting facts about urology that one might otherwise not be aware of:

  • Men over 40 years of age are at a higher risk of bladder cancer
  • Similarly, men over 70 are at a higher risk of prostate cancer
  • Studies show that pomegranate juice helps prevent prostate cancer
  • If one has a father, son or a brother who is afflicted with prostate cancer before the age of 65, he must start testing at 40
  • One's prostate is the size of a walnut. It weighs around 1 ounce

Use Of Laser In Urology - How It Is Beneficial?

Urology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diseases and disorders of the male and female urinary system and the male reproductive organs. It is a specialized branch of medicine that has been in existence for a long time and has advanced in many ways over the past two decades, courtesy the introduction of the laser technology. Laser technology has helped urologists tremendously and they have been able to treat a number of patients through laser-assisted surgery. The use of lasers has made it possible for the urologists to utilize endoscopic instruments with small-diameter that allow them to see the minutest details of the urinary tract and treat the complex cases with ease.

  • Laser in bladder outlet obstruction: Bladder outlet obstruction is a blockage at the base of the bladder, which slows down or stops the flow of urine to the urethra, causing discomfort to the patient. Most men in their old age suffer from this problem and laser technology helps in conducting the surgical procedure to remove this blockage. It has been found that laser-assisted surgery results in lesser loss of blood as compared to open surgery. In some cases, blood transfusion after surgery is not required at all. Also, the hospital stay post operation is shorter, which ensures more comfort to the patient.
  • Laser in urolithiasis: The formation of kidney stones in the urinary tract is known as urolithiasis. Treatment of this conditions requires surgical intervention and it is nowadays done with the help of endoscopic intracorporeal laser lithotripsy. This technique uses strong beams of laser light to locate the stones, fragment them, and remove them from the urinary tract. The laser technology is safe and can be used in the case of pregnant women too. It can easily access the hard stones present in difficult locations.
  • Laser in benign prostatic hyperplasia: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to the enlargement of the prostate. Some of the symptoms of this condition include a frequent urge to urinate, problems in urination, inability to urinate, and loss of bladder control. It can also lead to UTI (urinary tract infection) and stones. It can be treated with photoselective vaporization of the prostate (PVP) in which the excess prostate tissues are melted away and the prostate shrinks back to its original state. Holmium laser ablation of the prostate (HoLAP) also does the same but holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP) cuts the excess tissue blocking the urethra.
  • Laser in bladder cancer and urinary tract strictures: Bladder cancer refers to the abnormal growth of cells in the urinary tract and this is mostly found in the form of tumors. The tumors can be cancerous and transurethral bladder tumor resection (TURBT) laser technology can help in diagnosis, staging, as well as the treatment of malignant tumors. It makes use of cystoscope to remove the tumor. In case of urinary tract strictures, the urethra becomes narrow, hindering the passage of urine. It can be caused due to an infection or injury. With endoscopic urethrotomy and usage of the cystoscope, the urologist removes the stricture or makes it evaporate with the help of a laser.

Laser technology is of immense value to urologists and offers many advantages to the patients as well. It is more comfortable and with more advances being made in this field, the future looks even brighter for the doctors as well as patients.

Hymen Reconstruction - Know Its Benefits!

Are you aware of the procedure called hymenorrhaphy and the benefits that are associated with it? It is a surgical procedure that aims at repairing the hymen by stitching it back. It is referred to as hymen reconstruction, but is not a part of conventional gynecological care. It is considered to be more of a form of plastic surgery. Women undergoing this procedure do it so that the hymen bleeds after it is broken during sexual intercourse.

Procedure

  1. Hymenorrhaphy is a non invasive procedure which is performed under local anesthesia, along with sedation.
  2. Sometimes, general anesthesia may also be required depending on the patient’s condition.
  3. The surgery starts with the excision of the torn hymen edges.
  4. Commonly, a hymen reconstruction is performed following three ways.
  5. Sewing of the torn skin, which makes up the hymen’s secondary layer, making the hymen look intact.
  6. The placement of an artificial membrane without any blood supply that acts as an artificial hymen. A gelatin capsule containing a substance resembling blood is placed here.
  7. The placement of a flap taken from the vaginal lining for creating a hymen that is fully functional, along with blood supply. This acts as a restored hymen.
  8. Patients undergoing the second form of hymenorrhaphy should avoid having sexual intercourse for three months after the procedure.
  9. Dissolvable sutures are used during the procedure so that the patient does not have to visit a clinic to get them removed.

Results and benefits
The hymen, referred to as the virgin’s veil, breaks during sexual intercourse. It can also break or lacerate because of other factors like physical exercise, sports injuries, diseases, tampon use, or masturbation.

  1. The most common benefits or the reasons why women undergo a hymenorrhaphy are as follows:
  2. For serving as a sign of virginity before an intended marriage, which is needed in several cultures.
  3. For help with healing in women who have suffered sexual assault of some form. The procedure provides emotional and psychological relief to the affected woman.
  4. For repairing a hymen that is torn because of some kind of injury.
  5. Women considering undergoing a hymenorrhaphy for restoring their virginity should keep in mind the recovery period that follows the procedure. It is advised to women to undergo the procedure within a period of three months before getting married.

Breast Reconstruction: 3 Things You Need To Know!

Breast Reconstruction: 3 Things You Need To Know!

Breast reconstruction is the surgical procedure of creating a new breast shape. In some cases, it is done after the removal of the whole breast or part of the breast. In typical cases, breast reconstruction surgeries take place during or after mastectomy, which is the surgical procedure of removing a woman's breast. But it can be done even years after a mastectomy.

1. Factors to consider before opting for the surgeryConditions like obesity, smoking, diabetes, cardiac dysfunctions and high blood pressure are few of the many points that should be considered before opting for reconstruction. The presence of these conditions may complicate cases and in some episodes may pose a significant threat to a patient's life.
Also, women diagnosed with breast cancer or at a high risk of developing such in the future may have to opt for mastectomy. In such cases, the doctor may suggest breast reconstruction after the process.

2. The process of the surgery - Typically, breast reconstruction surgeries are done using an implant. Implant breast reconstruction includes the restoration of the shape and volume of the breast. The newly formed breast will not droop with age and may appear higher than the other one.

Implant reconstruction is also useful for women with small and firm breasts as it avoids the need for other extensive surgeries. 
Another type of breast reconstruction would include a procedure where one's own tissue is used. Tissue from the abdomen, buttocks, and inside of the thigh is generally used to replace the existing breast tissue. Similar to this is the procedure where a patient's own fat is processed and used to create a breast. This is commonly known as fat injection.

3. Limitations of a breast reconstruction surgery - There are certain limitations present in the process of breast reconstruction. Reconstructed breasts will not look or feel exactly the same way as before. Several appointments and cosmetic treatments might be required to obtain the best results. In usual cases, reconstructed breasts do not have a nipple. But one can be created using surgery at a later date. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon.
