Common Urinary Tract Conditions: Kidney Stones

A kidney stone is a solid piece of material that forms in the kidney out of substances in the urine. Stones can occur in any part of the urinary system from the kidney to the bladder. They may be small or large. You may have just one, or you may have many stones.

The kidneys filter blood and excrete waste products and excess water as urine. The kidneys are located in the abdomen, on either side of the spine, just above the waist.

Kidney stones are most common in middle-aged people. They are 3 times more common in men than in women. They tend to recur.

Common Urinary Tract Conditions: Functional Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. It becomes more common as people get older. Functional incontinence happens when you are unable to reach the bathroom in time to urinate because of physical or mental problems such as:

  • Arthritis or other problems that make it harder for you to remove your clothing before urinating
  • Not being able to get to the bathroom quickly because you are using crutches or a walker
  • Problems with reasoning such as dementia, which can keep you from realizing that you must urinate

Incontinence can be temporary or permanent.

Urinary Tract Conditions in Men

Our urologists also offer urology procedures for men to treat male infertility and prostate problems, including prostate cancer. Infertility involves problems with the man’s body about 20% of the time.

Live Well, Stay Well Tip

The American Cancer Society recommends prostate cancer screening if you are a man aged 45 years or older and at high risk. The high-risk population includes men of African descent and those whose fathers or brothers developed prostate cancer when they were aged 65 years or younger. Other men should begin screening at age 50 unless their physicians recommend screening at a younger age.
