What is urology and nephrology?
Focusing on the urinary tract, urology is a medical and surgical specialty that diagnoses and treats urological conditions, such as urinary tract infections, overactive bladder, kidney stones, male infertility and prostate cancer. While these conditions require different urological treatments, they often have related symptoms.
Urologists mainly focus on these organs that make up the urinary tract:
- Adrenal glands
- Male reproductive organs
- Urinary bladder
Nephrology, a medical specialty focusing on the kidneys, helps treat patients with conditions such as acute renal failure, kidney disease, kidney stones, hypertension and autoimmune diseases like lupus. Many times the kidneys are affected by other conditions throughout the body; therefore, patients may be referred to a nephrologist or urologist along with another specialist.
Perhaps one of the most serious urological conditions, prostate cancer, is second most common cancer in American men, only ranking behind skin cancer. While this cancer is treatable, it is usually caught very late because the symptoms are often embarassing to talk about. With our advanced diagnostic technology, early diagnosis at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel can save lives.
Don’t wait to seek medical attention if you have symptoms of prostate cancer or other urological conditions. Schedule your appointment at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel today.
