Bladder Cancer

One of the most common cancers, affects approximately 68,000 adults in the United States each year. There is a hiher incidence of bladder cancer in men than women and usually occurs in older adults. Symptoms include:

  • Blood in urine (hematuria)
  • Painful urination
  • Pelvic pain

Calculus of the Urinary System

Calculi are solid particles in the urinary system.that may cause pain, nausea, vomiting, hematuria, and, possibly, chills and fever due to secondary infection. A urinalysis and radiologic imaging, usually noncontrast helical CT are used to diagnose.

Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer rarely causes signs or symptoms in its early stages and currently there are no routine tests used to screen for kidney cancer in the absence of symptoms. In the later stages, kidney cancer signs and symptoms may include:

  • Blood in your urine, which may appear pink, red or cola colored
  • Pain in your back or side that doesn’t go away
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Tiredness
  • Fever, which usually comes and goes (intermittent)

Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer that’s detected when still confined to the prostate gland has a better chance of successful treatment. More advanced symptoms may include:

  • Trouble urinating
  • Decreased force in the stream of urine
  • Blood in semen
  • Discomfort in the pelvic area
  • Bone pain
  • Erectile dysfunction

Prostatitis

Prostatitis is swelling and inflammation of the prostate gland, a walnut-sized gland situated directly below the bladder in men. Sysmptoms may include:

  • Pain or burning sensation when urinating (dysuria)
  • Difficulty urinating, such as dribbling or hesitant urination
  • Frequent urination, particularly at night (nocturia)
  • Urgent need to urinate
  • Cloudy urine
  • Blood in the urine
  • Pain in the abdomen, groin or lower back
  • Pain in the area between the scrotum and rectum (perineum)
  • Pain or discomfort of the penis or testicles
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Flu-like signs and symptoms (with bacterial prostatitis)

Urinary Tract Infection

Urinary Tract Infections, also knows as UTIs refers to infection in any area of the urinary tract. It is more common among women than men. While uncomfortable, yet easily treatable, when the infection is confined within the bladder, consequences are more seious should the infection travel to the kidneys. Symtoms may include:

  • A strong, persistent urge to urinate
  • A burning sensation when urinating
  • Passing frequent, small amounts of urine
  • Urine that appears cloudy
  • Urine that appears red, bright pink or cola-colored — a sign of blood in the urine
  • Strong-smelling urine
  • Pelvic pain, in women — especially in the center of the pelvis and around the area of the pubic bone
