However, an urologist doctor deals with urinary system diseases in both men and women. Cystitis, urinary incontinence, urolithiasis, kidney disease – all this also cures urologist. Therefore, both men and women, as well as children, can see a doctor, says Dr. Denis Slinkin.

- You notice that there are changes in urination – it’s too frequent, or vice versa;
- You feel pain in your kidneys;
- the color of your urine has changed, the blood in your urine;
