Many people will have some kind of urinary problem or injury in their lifetime. Urinary problems can range from minor to serious. And sometimes these problems can start with the same symptoms. For example, pain during urination can be a symptom of both kidney stones and urinary tract infections. So it can be hard to tell which one is causing the problem.
But you can be prepared. Some common urinary problems may need only home treatment. But other more serious problems may need a doctor's care. Knowing the symptoms of urinary problems and your treatment options can help you take the best care of yourself. Our topics can help you learn more about your symptoms and care options.
