General Urology Q & A

What does general urology include?

General urology is a very wide field that includes all aspects of your urological, sexual, and prostate health. Some of the many services that the urology specialists at Midwest Urology Associates offer include:

  • Erectile dysfunction treatment
  • Prostate cancer screening
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) treatment (enlarged prostate)
  • Prostate cancer treatment
  • Urinary stone treatment (urethral, bladder, and kidney stones)
  • Incontinence treatment (urgency incontinence, overactive bladder, overflow incontinence)

General urology also includes all conditions that affect your urinary system, which includes your bladder, kidneys, ureters, urethra, and sphincter muscles. It also encompasses all aspects of male sexual health and some aspects of female sexual health. 

What can I expect during my urology appointment?

When you arrive for your appointment at Midwest Urology Associates, you complete some paperwork, including a medical history. You typically provide a urine sample in the first part of your appointment, so try to arrive with a full bladder if possible. Your Midwest Urology Associates provider reviews your medical history and discusses any particular concerns that brought you in (for example, urinary incontinence or erectile dysfunction). 

A physical exam of your genitourinary system (your urinary system and genitals) is normally part of a urology appointment. For men, this typically includes a digital rectal exam, in which your provider checks the prostate gland. 

Depending on your current issues and the results of your physical exam, the next step may involve testing. Some of the many possible tests include:

  • Blood testing
  • Ultrasound imaging
  • X-rays
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans
  • Urine flow studies
  • Urinary stone evaluations 

The Midwest Urology Associates team aggressively identifies and treats urinary, prostate, and sexual health problems in the way that’s best for your unique needs.
