Diseases and conditions
Some of the major interventions and therapies at the Institute of Urology at Yashoda Hospitals are for:
Stones in the Urinary Tract
Urinary tract stones are hard deposits of mineral that form in the kidney. They might grow bigger in the ureter or bladder. It can block the flow of urine and cause infection, pain, or bleeding.
- Kidney Tumour: Kidney cancer or renal cancer occurs when a group of cells becomes malignant. Upon further growth, they become tumor (s) that disrupt normal kidney functioning.
- Penile Cancer: When cancerous cells grow in the penis, they lead to penile cancer. Warts on the penis that discharge blood or other fluids can be a sign of penile cancer.
- Prostate Cancer: It is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in men. Cancer develops in the prostate, a gland in men that produces the fluid that transports sperm.
- Testicular Cancer: It occurs in the testicles, a gland that produces male sex hormones and sperm. It commonly occurs in young men between the ages of 15-35.
- Bladder Cancer: It affects older men. Painless blood in the urine or painful passing or urine are symptoms that accompany the condition.
If the urethra is narrowed down due to an inflammation or infection, the flow of urine can be blocked. This is referred to as Stricture urethra.
The prostate performs an important function of producing sperm-carrying fluid. It also wraps around the urethra. Thus, ensuring its health ensures good urination and sexual health.
Male Sexual Health
Physiological factors such as erectile function and fertility are essential aspects of male sexual health.
Male infertility can arise due to low sperm count, abnormal functioning, or a blockage that disrupts sperm delivery. Other factors like inherited disorder or hormonal imbalance can also cause it.
Kidney Failure / End-stage Kidney Failure
End-stage rennal disease (ESRD) occurs when the kidneys lose their functional ability to filter out waste from water. It is the last stage of chronic kidney disease.
Some common female urological conditions are Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), incontinence after pregnancy, pelvic floor dysfunction, and pelvic organ prolapse.
Some of the commonly seen conditions include bladder exstrophy, cloacal anomalies, hernias, congenital defects such as duplex kidneys (incomplete or otherwise abnormal development of the genital organs), kidney stones, neurogenic bladder from spinal cord lesions, such as myelomeningocele, ureteropelvic junction obstruction (blockage of urine flow from the kidneys), vesicoureteral reflux (backup of urine from the bladder toward the kidneys), hydronephrosis (kidney dilation, detected prenatally or in childhood), hypospadias (urine passage ending short of the end of the penis), Wilms tumor and other kidney tumors in children, rhabdomyosarcoma of the genitourinary system, testicular tumors, undescended testicles.
