Urology Malta

What is Urology?

Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary system of both males and females. Urologists deal with diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the urinary system including the Bladder, Kidneys, Ureters, Urethra, as well as conditions involving the adrenal glands.

Urology is one of the most technologically advanced surgical specialties in which the most advanced bloodless, laser and robot-assisted surgical methods are routinely used.

Urology is an extremely dynamic and rapidly developing specialty. The great variety of diseases and problems, over time, has necessitated the identification of several conditional subdivisions in it:

Oncourology, which deals with the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and follow-up of cancers in urology.

Endourology, which covers the use and application of all endoscopic (bloodless) and robotic surgical methods for the treatment of urological diseases.

Pediatric urology, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of urological problems in childhood, which, although similar to those in adults, have their own specificity.

Andrology, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of problems of the male reproductive system and male sterility.

Urogynecology, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the urinary system in women.

Most common urological conditions:

  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Inability to control urination (urinary incontinence)
  • Blood in the urine (hematuria)
  • Obstructive uropathy / Urine Retention, Hydronephrosis, Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Carcinoma of the prostate gland /
  • Oncological Diseases / Kidney Carcinoma, Upper Urinary Tract Carcinoma, Bladder Carcinoma, Prostate Gland Carcinoma, Testicular and Penile Carcinoma /
  • Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder)
  • Kidney, ureter and urinary bladder stones (urolithiasis)
  • Pelvic organ prolapses
  • Congenital Malformations
  • Traumatic injuries of the Urinary tract system and the Male Genital system

How do you know when it's time to see a urologist?

The presence of any of these symptoms suggests that you have a problem with the urinary tract:

  • Frequent or urgent need to urinate
  • Pain in the lower back, pelvis or side
  • Pain or burning during urination
  • Problems urinating, leakage of urine, blood, weak flow
  • A feeling that something is falling down into your vagina or heaviness in that area

In addition to discomfort that will make you visit a urologist, a preventive examination is just as important. Men over the age of 50 are advised to visit a urologist at least once a year to be screened for prostate cancer. Even if you have no complaints, lead a perfect sex life and have never had to visit a doctor, a preventive examination is a must.

Consultations and diagnosis

Urologist Malta

The urologist will perform a physical exam. Physical examination will be different for males and females. If you’re a man, your doctor may do a rectal exam. If you’re a woman, you may need to have a pelvic exam.

The Doctor may also order urinalysis, blood tests, semen samples or imaging tests, such as a CT scan or ultrasound to take a closer look at your organs.

If you think you have a problem, experience some difficulty, do not hesitate and make an appointment with the urologist. It will help you deal with the discomfort and bring normalcy back into your life.

How to prepare for your first visit to a urologist?

You can prepare a list of questions you want to ask. When the urologist finds out all the information he needs, he can provide an accurate treatment plan going forward. Describe as many details as possible.

Rate your symptoms and note the duration. It’s always helpful to keep track of this information ahead of time and then discuss with the doctor. Go through your symptoms with your urologist and ask any questions you have.

After the urologist examines you, he will discuss his findings and possible solutions. Depending on your symptoms, treatment such as medication, physical therapy or a surgical procedure may be recommended.

Take notes when your doctor reviews a treatment plan with you. Ask clarifying questions about what they just told you. Remember, if you’re not sure about something, just ask. The Doctor will do his best to make an accurate diagnosis and offer you best treatment decision.
