Urology is the field of medicine that focuses on the urinary tracts of males and females, and on the reproductive system of males.
In men, the urinary system overlaps with the reproductive system, and in women the urinary tract opens into the vulva.
For these reasons, we developed the point value system.
Since this is a subjective call, there is no study that is 100% accurate.
To try to remedy this, the NIH devised a new classification system in 1999.
In addition, many professionals have a financial arrangement for back-and-forth referrals.A prostatitis diagnosis is assigned at 8% of all urologist and 1% of all primary care physician visits in the USA.Nomenclature The term prostatitis refers in its strictest sense to histological (microscopic) inflammation of the tissue of the prostate gland, although historically the term has loosely been used as a rubric to describe a set of quite different conditions.Because of its location, prostate diseases often affect urination, ejaculation, or defecation.The prostate contains many small glands which make about twenty percent of the fluid comprising semen.In both sexes, the urinary and reproductive tracts are close together, and disorders of one often affect the other.The organs covered by urology include the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder, urethra, and the male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate and penis).It is located in the pelvis, under the urinary bladder and in front of the rectum.The prostate surrounds part of the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder during urination and semen during ejaculation.Sepsis from prostatitis is very rare, but may occur in immunocompromised patients; high fever and malaise generally prompt blood cultures, which are often positive in sepsis.Treatment Antibiotics are the first line of treatment in acute prostatitis (Cat. Antibiotics usually resolve acute prostatitis infections in a very short period of time.
