Conditions Treated by Urologists at Washington Township Medical Foundation
There are a wide range of conditions that can affect the urinary tract
/ male reproductive system, thus falling under the purview of a urologist
who specializes in these areas. Our Fremont urologists at Washington Township
Medical Foundation are equipped to treat a broad range of conditions and
disorders within the field of urology.
Urologists treat the following conditions, among others:
Cystitis - This condition is more commonly known as a urinary tract infection (UTI)
or bladder infection. Cystitis is an infection that affects any aspect
of the urinary system, including the urethra, bladder, and kidneys. Systems
include pelvic pain, pain while urinating, and blood in the urine. It
is important to see a doctor if you experience a UTI.
Erectile Dysfunction - Erectile dysfunction is a condition that is common in men, especially
older men. This condition occurs when a man cannot obtain or sustain an
erection, and causes are often physical or psychological in nature. There
are treatments available for this condition; ask your doctor what steps
are right for you.
Interstitial Cystitis - Interstitial cystitis (IC) is also referred to as bladder pain syndrome
(BPS). Symptoms of this chronic pain condition include frequent urination,
the feeling of urgent urination, and pain during sex.
Prostate Cancer - Urologists are able to treat prostate cancer. The prostate is a small
gland that creates seminal fluid responsible for fueling and moving sperm.
It is important to schedule routine screening for prostate cancer, as
this condition may have no symptoms.
Urinary Incontinence - Urinary incontinence is classified as the involuntary expulsion of urine
on a frequent basis, which often occurs when the patient loses control
of his / her urinary sphincter whether in whole or in part. This condition
is highly common. Ask your doctor about treatment options and more.
