Urinary problems are a group of conditions that cause troubling, pain symptoms in your urinary tract. Urinary problems can affect any part of your urinary tract including your kidneys, bladder, ureter and urethra.
Urinary problems affect your urinating habits, display abnormal changes and affect how you filter out toxins from your body. Majorly, urinary problems act as a symptom of some underlying condition. These symptoms, if left untreated, can lead to embarrassing situations for patients.
Listed below are some common conditions that can cause urinary problems in adults.
The bladder is found in your lower abdomen responsible for storing urine. Urinary bladder problems can affect anyone, however, it mostly older people. It is because as a person ages, the bladder muscles and tissues lose their strength and capacity to hold urine. There are several types of urinary bladder problems, including:
Overactive bladder – Overactive bladder is a condition that poses difficulty in your urge to hold urine in the bladder. As a result, it causes an urgent and frequent need to urinate, unintentional leakage of urine, the urgency to urinate, particularly at the night. Overactive bladder treatment includes medications, pelvic floor muscle exercises and lifestyle changes.
Urine retention – Urinary retention is a condition in which a person loses their ability to empty his/her bladder completely. The individual becomes unable to pass any urine despite an urgent need to urinate.
Interstitial cystitis – Interstitial cystitis is a chronic bladder condition that leads to severe pain and pressure in the pelvis and bladder. It is also called painful bladder syndrome.
Urinary tract infections are a group of infection that occurs in any part of your urinary tract. Majorly, UTIs affected the lower urinary tract including the bladder and urethra. There are several different types of urinary tract infections depending upon the organ it affects. Common signs of UTIs include a persistent urge to urinate, painful and burning sensation when urinating, a disrupted flow of urine, cloudy and foul-smelly urine, abnormally coloured urine, pelvic pain.

Excellent experience. The front office staff is very well-spoken and helpful. The nurses are very polite and the doctors are really the best in their field. My treatment journey was very smooth. Great experience! Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
My father had been suffering from urinary tract infections for a long term. He had repeated UTIs and the doctor we were consulting earlier could not really help too. My colleague suggested that I should take him to the CK Birla Hospital as their urology department is very good. I met Dr Shalabh who is a brilliant doctor. He is very intelligent and his medications and advice helped my father instantly. He got better very soon and I feel very thankful for his help. Very nice hospital and excellent services. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
I visited the CK Birla Hospital when I started suffering from urinary problems. I had these bouts and urges to urinate very suddenly. I met Dr Shalabh who diagnosed me without the need for unnecessary tests. He is very intelligent and professional and his medications worked almost instantly. I am very pleased with my experience here. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
Repeated urinary tract infections can be caused by poor hygiene, urinary tract abnormalities, suppressed immune system and sexual intercourse.
Blood in the urine can happen due to several reasons such as UTIs, kidney stones, BPH, kidney failure and other causes.
The main reason behind the overactive bladder is the weakening of bladder muscles and the tightening of tissues.
Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments can sometimes increase your risk of urinary incontinence.
