Urology is the field of medicine that focuses on diseases of the urinary tract and the male reproductive tract.
Urologists diagnose and treat diseases of the urinary tract in both men and women. They also diagnose and treat anything involving the reproductive tract in men.
In some cases, they may perform surgery. For example, they may remove cancer or open a blockage in the urinary tract. Urologists work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, private clinics, and urology centres.
The urinary tract is the system that creates, stores, and removes urine from the body. Urologists can treat any part of this system.
