The urinary tract includes your kidneys, ureters, and bladder. To urinate normally, the urinary tract needs to work together in the correct order.

Urologic diseases, disorders, and conditions affect people of all ages, result in significant health care expenditures, and may lead to substantial disability and impaired quality of life.

Non-cancerous (benign) urologic health problems include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, urinary incontinence, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (an enlarged prostate).

The urinary tract is your body’s drainage system for removing urine. Urine is composed of wastes and water.

Urologic diseases or conditions include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, bladder control problems, and prostate problems, among others.

As the kidneys filter waste from the blood, they create urine. Kidney stones are small “pebbles” of salt and mineral in the urine. The most common symptom is severe pain. Most stones pass on their own, but medical procedures are used to remove some kidney stones.

When kidney stones move through the urinary tract, they may cause:

  • Severe pain in the back, belly, or groin
  • Frequent or painful urination
  • Blood in the urine
  • Nausea and vomiting

In the above symptoms, it’s best to seek medical care right away. Abdominal pain is associated with many other conditions, including emergencies like appendicitis.
