  • Cystograms — x-ray imaging of your bladder
  • Cystoscopy— a thin scope used to see inside your urethra and bladder

  • Blood in your urine
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Painful urination
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain that radiates to your lower back
  • Trouble emptying or controlling your bladder

For men over 40, it’s also common to schedule regular visits to a urologist to have their prostates checked.

What can I expect during my urology appointment?

Chevron Icon

To start your appointment, your urologist will typically perform a physical exam while asking questions about your medical history and your current symptoms. Your urologist may also order urine, blood, or imaging tests to help diagnose your condition. Depending on your condition, your urologist will then discuss the treatment options available to you, which may include a referral to a surgeon who specializes in the procedure used to treat your condition.

What questions should I ask my urologist?

For general questions, ask:

  • How can I keep my urinary tract healthy?

For men, ask:

While these questions are a good place to start, it’s important to write down any concerns you may have about your symptoms and share those with your urologist.
