Health Information by category Genito-urinary / Kidney

The genito-urinary system includes the organs that make, collect and store urine - that is the kidney, ureters and bladder - as well as those that are involved in reproduction for men and women. There are many conditions that affect this system, from common infections like a urine infection or chlamydia, to more complex, life-changing conditions like prostate cancer and diabetic kidney disease. This section has information on all of them. If you want to know “What are the symptoms of prostate cancer?", or "What are fibroids?”, you will find helpful information here in our doctor-authored leaflets. We will answer questions about usual investigations such as “What is a intravenous urography?” and also treatments, like “What treatment is available for incontinence?”.
