There's nothing embarrassing about a urinary condition.
If you think you need care for urinary or reproductive conditions (or even cancer) there's no need to be embarrassed. In fact, urologists have many years of education and training in this field and are very comfortable talking with patients about their concerns.
Urology health conditions are common, and it’s important to know there are often treatment options available to patients when they fully discuss their concerns. When you are open and honest with your health care provider about your symptoms, they are more likely to be able to diagnose and treat the problem. It's important to work together when making health care treatment decisions.
