What are Urologic diseases?
Urology is the department that deals with the diseases and conditions affecting the urinary tract system in both men and women.
The urinary tract acts as the body’s drainage system to remove urine. Urine contains wastes and water. The urinary tract covers the kidneys, ureters, and bladder. For normal urination, the urinary tract needs to work correctly.
The urologic disease involves urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder control problems, and prostate problems, and much other. These urologic conditions are short term or long term and affect people of all ages.
