Urine Diseases

The urinary tract consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra. Your kidneys filter your blood, creating urine which then excretes through the urinary tract.

Which travels through the ureters to the bladder, where it is stored. When the appropriate time comes, the muscles of your bladder contract, and urine exits your body through your urethra. Urinary disorders include any diseases, disorders, or conditions that affect your kidneys, ureters, bladder or urethra, or that affect their function. Examples of urinary disorders include cancers of the urinary tract, incontinence (inability to control urine flow), interstitial cystitis, kidney stones, kidney failure, and urinary tract infections. Common symptoms of urinary disorders include abdominal, pelvic, or lower back pain or discomfort; blood in the urine; changes in the urine; difficulty producing urine; fever and chills; frequent urination; leaking of urine; and urgent need to urinate. Some urinary disorders, such as infections, may develop quickly, while others, such as cancer, develop more slowly.
