What is urology?
Urology deals with the functions and disfunctions of the organs located in the urinary tract (i.e. kidneys, bladder, urethra and ureter) in women and men. Urology also involves treating diseases found in male sexual organs such as the penis, prostate or testicles. In addition, urologists also cover areas of andrology, which includes all areas of medicine that deal with the reproductive functions of men. Reasons for an examination by a urologist can include erectile dysfunction, fertility issues, incontinence or diseases of the sexual organs.
