Modern urology involves prevention, diagnostics and treatment of diseases of the urinary system and genital organs. Due to the prevalence of urological diseases and their impact on the quality of life of the patients, as well as the risks associated with delayed diagnosis, urological diagnostics is very important for men, women and children.
In particular, congenital anomalies of the genitourinary tract (e.g. urethral stricture) are the most common type of anomalies in the human body and can often be the cause of vesicoureteral reflux. If the diagnosis is incorrect, urinary tract infections caused by the abovementioned anomaly often lead to dialysis, while with timely diagnosis, a minimally invasive intervention may prevent kidney damage.
Another example of the necessity for the regular preventive urological examinations is a testicular cancer – the most common type of malignant pathology in men younger than 35 years old. The possibilities of modern urology allow to completely cure this kind of pathology practically in all cases, if it was timely revealed.
A special mission of urological diagnostics is the detection of urinary tract tumors, which is up to 25% of all cancers. In particular, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men. Regular urological examinations, including the PSA test, can detect the tumor at an early stage and completely cure this type of cancer.
Regarding the female urology, it is extremely important to monitor such symptom as the presence of blood in the urine, a possible sign of bladder tumor. Yet, the death rate due to this disease in women is higher than in men, because often presence of blood in the urine is interpreted incorrectly in the context of gynecological pathology for several months.
Urological diagnosis in the PRADUS center is performed with the help of the most modern technology with high resolution, among them: digital X-ray machines, highly sensitive ultrasound devices etc. The endoscopic studies are performed using only modern techniques (for example, flexible uretherorenoscopy), allowing conducting a survey in the gentlest way for the patient.
