Things to Know About Urosepsis

Things to Know About Urosepsis

One of the most important urological conditions to know about is urosepsis. It’s important to learn about urosepsis because it can be a potentially life-threatening condition. Here’s everything you need to know about serious conditions like urosepsis!

What Is Urosepsis and Are the Symptoms?

Essentially, urosepsis is a form of sepsis. More specifically, it is a dangerous bacterial infection present in the bloodstream. Once the infection is in the bloodstream, it becomes very serious.

Symptoms include cloudy urine, burning or itching during urination or the constant sensation of having a full bladder. You may also feel pressure on your abdomen. Another potential symptom of urosepsis is pain during intercourse. Sexual intercourse should not be painful, and if it is, you need to see a urologist.

If you experience any of these symptoms, you should get in touch with a urologist right away. The longer you delay making an appointment, the more dangerous the situation becomes.

It’s Life-Threatening

Urosepsis is a dangerous condition that requires immediate hospitalization. While early symptoms may be as mild as chills and a fever, if left untreated, urosepsis can cause your organs to fail which makes it potentially fatal.

How to Prevent Urosepsis?

The best way to prevent urosepsis is to get UTIs, or, urinary tract infections treated as soon as possible. A UTI can cause urosepsis as the bacterial infection from your urinary tract or prostate eventually travels into the bloodstream.

Signs You Need to See a Urologist

Signs You Need to See a Urologist

There are a number of warning signs to watch out for that can indicate when you need to see a urologist. If these warning signs are ignored, it could be too late by the time you make an appointment.

That’s why it’s so important to know the signs that you need to see a urologist. The only problem is most people don’t know what to look for. Here’s an overview of the biggest red flags to watch out for.

Painful Urination Coupled with Chills and a Fever

When you have chills and run a fever, it’s natural to think that it’s just a fever, but if you are also experiencing painful urination at the same time, it could be a UTI. A UTI, or, urinary tract infection is more common in females than males, and it can be dangerous when left untreated.

Male Infertility

If you have been trying to have a baby for a long time and are starting to lose hope, you need to see a urologist. In many cases, a talented urologist can correct male infertility by addressing the underlying problem at hand.

Painful Ejaculation

Ejaculations shouldn’t be painful, and if they are, you need to see a urologist right away. One of the most concerning things about painful ejaculation other than the symptom itself is the fact that it’s usually a sign of prostatitis.

Prostatitis is essentially an inflamed prostate. An inflamed prostate can cause painful ejaculation as well as painful urination. While prostatitis isn’t life-threatening it can reduce your quality of life.

What Happens When You Ignore Prostate Cancer?

What Happens When You Ignore Prostate Cancer?

When you have prostate cancer, most people choose to arrange for treatment, but not everyone does. It might seem crazy to refuse treatment for prostate cancer, but that’s exactly what some folks choose to do.

Some people ignore prostate cancer because they are more afraid of surgery than the disease itself. While such a sentiment is understandable, it can result in great tragedy. Here’s what happens when you ignore prostate cancer.

The Disease Will Continue to Progress When Left Untreated

When prostate cancer is left untreated, the disease will continue to progress. Unfortunately, no measure of willpower or denial for that matter will stop the advancement of a disease like prostate cancer.

Instead of having a number of years to live, you could wind up having a matter of months to live when you ignore prostate cancer. If you are afraid of surgery or seeing a Urologist, you need to overcome that fear and realize that the consequences of ignoring prostate cancer are far worse than the risk of seeking treatment.

There is nothing more tragic than a preventable death. The real tragedy of someone who dies from prostate cancer because they ignored the disease is the fact that it could have been prevented.

Make the Right Choice and Schedule an Appointment with Z Urology

Whether you already know that you have prostate cancer or you are experiencing symptoms that are commonly associated with prostate cancer, you need to schedule an appointment with the team at Z Urology.

Uncommon Signs of Prostate Cancer

Uncommon Signs of Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is one of the biggest health risks that men have to look out for. We all know the most common signs of prostate cancer, however, there are some uncommon signs of prostate cancer that most men aren’t aware of. Here’s an overview of the most uncommon signs of prostate cancer.

Erectile Dysfunction

Some men experience erectile dysfunction while contracting prostate cancer. When most men seek treatment for erectile dysfunction, they don’t think to ask if it could mean that they have prostate cancer.

If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, you need to ask a urologist about getting tested for prostate cancer.

Bloody Urine or Seminal Fluid

Another uncommon red flag that many men ignore is blood in their urine or semen. While most men would be concerned by the presence of blood in their urine, semen, or both, not many of them know that it can also be a sign that you have prostate cancer.

Unexpected or Unintentional Weight Loss

One of the most dangerous signs of prostate cancer to watch out for is unintentional weight loss. If you have experienced sudden and unexpected weight loss couples with sores in your mouth, it could mean that you have prostate cancer.

More concernedly, by the time most people with prostate cancer undergo sudden weight loss, it means that the cancer has already progressed significantly. Men with sudden unintentional weight loss need to contact a urologist as soon as possible.
