Urological problems are very common in men. Here are some common urological problems that can be found in men and treated by the urologist in West Delhi.

Urology is a branch of medicine which addresses and treats the diseases affecting the urinary tract system. This is done in both men and women. The field of urology also addresses the reproductive system of males. However, if these conditions are left untreated, it can cause severe pain and discomfort. Below mentioned are some common male urological problems which can be treated by the urologist in West Delhi.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia:

This condition majorly affects older men. Also known by the name of prostate gland enlargement, it leads to irritable urinary symptoms that block the smooth flow of urine out of the bladder. The prostate surrounds a portion of the urethra. This is the tube which carries urine and semen out of the penis. Due to BPH, the prostate becomes larger than usual, thereby squeezing the urethra. As a result, the pee steam becomes weak and the frequency of urination also increases.

The symptoms include:-

  • Frequent need for urination 
  • Nocturia or the need to urinate at night
  • Weakened stream of urine 
  • Inability to empty the bladder completely
  • You can also notice infections in your urinary tract or blood.

Erectile Dysfunction:

Also known as impotence, it is the inability to keep an erection during sexual activity. While having this trouble from time to time is not a cause of serious concern. However, if this is an ongoing issue, it can lead to stress, lowers down the self-confidence and also invites relationship problems. It also increases the likelihood of a heart attack.
