What is urology, and when should someone visit a urologist? Well, the answer varies between men and women, but the common denominator for both genders addressed by urologists are diseases related to the urinary tract (kidney, renal pelvis, ureter, urinary bladder, urethra, adrenal gland, renal artery and vein, inferior vena cava, abdominal aorta, common iliac artery and vein, liver, large intestine, pelvis). In addition, urologists specifically address common male issues related to their reproductive system. So, if you’re a man, and believe you are a candidate for, or suffering from infertility, erectile dysfunction, and in more serious cases, cancers of the bladder, kidney, testicles, and prostate glands, then you should seriously consider visiting a highly qualified urologist in Dubai. Fundamentally speaking, men can regard urologists as the male version of gynecologists as they can address anything related to the male reproductive system, and address other health issues related to it.
