Urology is the medical specialty that is responsible for preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases of the male and female urinary and reproductive system. In Guatemala, urology is a specialty in high demand, since diseases of the urinary tract are very common in the population.
The most common causes of urological problems include infections, tumors, kidney stones, obstructions, genetic disorders and autoimmune diseases. The effects of these problems can range from minor discomfort to serious consequences, such as kidney failure or erectile dysfunction.
Diseases treated by urologists in Guatemala include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, erectile dysfunction and sexually transmitted diseases. Subspecialties in urology include endourology, pediatric urology, oncologic urology and renal transplantation.
