Dr Erik Goluboff: How To Know If You’re Suffering From An Unknown Disease And What To Do About It

Ever wonder why it’s so hard to pee sometimes, or why you’re tired all the time? You might be suffering from urology, a disease that affects your urinary tract and kidneys. There are many different types of urology diseases and conditions. Some are easily treated, while others can be deadly if not diagnosed quickly enough. However, there are some symptoms that everyone can look out for no matter what type of disease they may be dealing with:
Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, according to the National Cancer Institute. It’s also one of the easiest to treat if it’s caught early enough–but because there aren’t any symptoms until advanced stages of the disease, many men suffer from prostate cancer without knowing it.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or have a family history of prostate cancer, talk with your doctor about getting tested: difficulty urinating, frequent urination and blood in urine; pain in lower back, hips or pelvis; swelling or tenderness on one side of your pelvic area (you may notice this when sitting down). Dr Erik Goluboff is a urologist and prostate cancer specialist. He says that men are more likely to experience prostate cancer if they’re over 50, or have a family history of the disease.
Urinary Tract Infection
Dr Erik Goluboff Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common type of bacterial infection in the body. They can be caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites and lead to inflammation of the urinary tract (urethra).
If you have symptoms such as frequent urination and a burning sensation when you pee, pain in your lower abdomen or groin area, nausea and vomiting, fever or chills then it’s possible that you have a UTI.
If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately. If it’s not urgent and the office is closed, go to the emergency room or call 911. A visit to an ER should be your last resort because they are expensive and can often be crowded with people in serious need of care who will take up valuable time from your physician–so only do this if you really need to!
