Get Rid of Painful Kidney Stones

Urinary Tract Stones are more common in men than woman. Kidney stone not only troubles the bladder but also gives much pain in the abdomen and pelvic area. The following persons are at a higher risk of being affected by kidney stones:
  • Persons who already had stones in one kidney
  • Those with a hereditary background of kidney stones
  • People between 20-49 years who are exposed to multiple kidney stone attacks
  • Hyperuricemia is the condition of excess uric acid in the blood. Uric acid kidney stones are very common among them.
  • Increase progesterone levels, reduce intake of fluid, decreased the capacity of the urinary bladder due to the enlarged uterus, and excretion of calcium in the urine make pregnant women prone to kidney stones
Symptoms of  Kidney Stone

The urgency of urination, difficulty in urination, penile pain, and testicular pain are the base symptoms. If anybody has an infection in the urinary bladder, it causes chills and fever. Severe cramping is experienced by the person in the abdomen, lower back, and groin characterized by nausea and vomiting.

Drinking plenty of water rehydrates the body and the accumulated stones will be flushed out through urine commonly. The pain and discomfort are settled down by painkillers and anti-inflammatory tablets. Intravenous treatment is administered to the patients to stop the persistent pain, nausea, and vomiting. The treatment for kidney stone depends on the sizes of the stones present. A 4 mm stone will come out of urine while a 5 mm one has a meager chance of being let out. 9-10 mm stones are treated with calcium channel blockers and alpha blocker medicines to elevate the urination to flush out the kidney stones. Lithotripsy method is final when all attempts fail. With the help of shock waves, the stones will be crushed which will come out through urine.

UPJ Obstruction Treatment in Mumbai

The ureter is a long thin tubular structure 10-12 inches long which carries urine produced in the kidney to the bladder.The urine is transported by a process called peristalsis

Ureteropelvic Junction(UPJ) Obstruction is a partial or total blockage at the place where  urine is produced (the kidney) and the tube that carries it to the bladder (the ureter). The kidney filters blood and collects urine at its center, where the renal pelvis funnels it into the ureter so that it can be delivered to the bladder.Congenital abnormalities may be observed in both adults and children.

Prostate cancer occurs in 95 percent of cases in the glandular tissue , which is called adenocarcinomas . The remaining five percent is  neuroendocrine cancer that originates in the small cells of the prostate.

Symptoms :
Signs and symptoms include:
* Frequent urination
* Weak or interrupted urinary stream
* Blood in the urine
* Urgency to urinate frequently at night
* Blood in the seminal fluid
* Bone pain

Usually, prostate cancers in the early stages do not cause symptoms. Most prostate cancers are first detected by  blood test PSA ( prostate-specific antigen , PSA) or digital rectal examination ( digital rectal exam DRE).
