Is it time to turn to a urologist for treatment?
Our Hollywood, FL, urologist Dr. Jonathan Masel specializes in diagnosing, treating, and managing conditions that impact the urinary tract. We work with individuals of all ages, from children to seniors. Wondering if you could benefit from turning to a urologist? We can certainly provide you with care if,
You’re Dealing With a Urinary Tract Infection
If you are experiencing burning when you urinate, cloudy or strong-smelling urine, or frequent urination, these are all signs of a urinary tract infection. UTIs often require treatment from our Hollywood, FL, urologist. If left untreated, UTIs can travel further into the urinary tract and lead to a kidney infection and complications. While both men and women can develop UTIs, they are more common in women.
You Think You Have a Kidney Stone
Kidney stones are incredibly painful. If you find yourself suddenly dealing with intense stomach pain, cloudy urine or blood in the urine, these are signs of a kidney stone. While some people can pass kidney stones on their own without complication, it’s crucial that you turn to our team for pain management and consider other treatment options to break up larger stones, so they are easier to pass.
You’re Dealing With Leakage
We know it can be an embarrassing topic, but many people deal with urine leakage or urinary incontinence. Again, this is a common issue for women as they age or after childbirth due to weakened pelvic floor muscles. The good news is that our Hollywood, FL, urologist can determine the cause of your urinary incontinence and provide you with several treatment options.
You’re Experiencing Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
While most men will turn to their primary physician when dealing with these issues, a urologist is a specialist you want to turn to when dealing with erectile dysfunction. We understand that it’s a sensitive subject, but it’s a common issue. As your urologist, we will evaluate all factors of your health that could be causing your ED and, from there, treat the cause of your ED symptoms.
If you are dealing with any urinary changes or experiencing any of the symptoms above, our Hollywood, FL, urologist Dr. Masel can determine what’s causing your symptoms and provide you with the treatment you need. Call Masel Urology Center at (954) 961-7500 to schedule a consultation.
