The urinary tract includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. The urinary tract filters waste and extra fluid from the bloodstream and drains them from the body in the form of urine.
Urology is the area of medicine that deals with diseases and conditions of the female and male urinary tract as well as male organs affiliated with reproduction (e.g. penis, scrotum, testes, prostate, etc.).
Urinary tract conditions include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- Blood in the urine
- Incontinence or overactive bladder
- Chronic pain or interstitial cystitis
- Urinary tract blockage
- Kidney stones
- Kidney disease
