What is Urology?

Urology is a surgical and medical specialty that deals with the basics, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract and sexual organs. The urologist thus treats diseases of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, urethra, testes, prostate, penis, and adrenal glands. Each organ can be affected by congenital diseases, infections, trauma, benign diseases, or malignant tumors.
