Tumors, whether benign or cancerous, are the main urological diseases.

The growth of a tumor should be checked with a specialist, although they usually originate in a specific tissue can affect others.

Benign tumors usually present in the male and female urethra; Prostate cancer is usually the most frequent cancerous tumor.

When you experience pain or discomfort when urinating it can be a urinary infection.

Urinary tract infection is usually bacterial, when it affects the kidney and renal pelvis it is called pyelonephritis, if it involves the bladder it is cystitis, when it affects the urethra it is urethritis, when it affects the prostate it is called prostatitis.

Urinary infections are more common in women than in men, but both should see a medical specialist if you experience discomfort, they are usually treated with antibiotics.

Erectile dysfunction prevents being able to have or maintain an erection long enough to have sex.

The most common symptoms are not being able to have an erection, or sometimes having an erection without having sex.

Erectile dysfunction can be treated at any age, but you are more likely to get it as you get older.

Urologists are the ones who can treat this condition, and they are experts in talking with people about other types of sexual problems.
