Urology is the study of the urinary system in both men and women, and it also serves to diagnose and treat anything involving the male reproductive tract. The urinary tract is made up of the prostate, bladder, kidney, ureter and adrenal gland.

When you are experiencing issues with your sexual health or urinary system, it can be embarrassing and frustrating. Know that you are not alone. Taking the first step to meet with a doctor and discuss your symptoms can make all the difference in helping to diagnose and treat your condition effectively. Your primary care doctor can treat you for mild urinary problems, like a urinary tract infection. Your doctor may refer you to a urologist if your condition doesn’t improve or if you have a condition he or she can’t treat.

Having any of the following symptoms may mean it’s time to schedule a visit with a urologist:

  • Blood in your urine
  • Frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Plain in your lower back, pelvis or sides
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Trouble urinating
  • Urine leakage
  • Weak urine flow
  • Lump in the testicle
  • Trouble getting or keeping an erection
  • Decreased sexual desire in men
