The smaller the kidney stone, the more likely it will pass on its own. If it is too large, they may cause intense pain. When the stone is in the Kidney it rarely causes pain. If it falls into the ureter, as the kidney continues to function and the pressure builds up behind the stone and causes kidney to swell.

Get Treated For Prostate Cancer...

The most commonly found type of cancer in men, prostate cancer occurs when the tissues lining the prostate gland turn cancerous. The prostate is a walnut shaped gland that helps the production of seminal fluid used in the transport of sperm. Prostate cancer treatment is highly successful if administered in the early stages of cancer growth.

Prostate cancer is found more commonly in the older population than among young men. It has some links with heredity.

Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

  • Trouble in urination
  • Decreased force of urination
  • Discomfort or irritation in pelvic area
  • Blood in semen
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Bone pain

Prostate Cancer Treatment Procedures

The prostate cancer treatment course is decided by factors like the rate of cancer growth, its spread and the overall health of the patient. The various treatment options are as follows

Radiation Therapy

High powered energy is used to kill cancerous cells in radiation therapy. They can be beamed from outside the body, known as external radiation therapy. Radiation is also done internally by a process called brachytherapy where rice sized radiation seeds are placed inside the prostate cells. Though this technique has side effects like painful or frequent urination, it helps in speedy destruction of malign cells.

Hormone Therapy

The cancerous cells of prostate gland grow with the help of testosterone hormone. Blocking the presence of this hormone can lead to the death of these cells or slow down their growth. This is done with the help of hormone therapy. This is done by administering medications to stop the production of testosterone or to stop it from reaching the prostate glands with the help of anti-androgens. In some cases, testicles are removed to stop or slow down the production of testosterone.


When the growth of cancer cannot be controlled by the above methods, surgery is used to remove the prostate gland. With the development in technology, robotic surgeries and laparoscopic prostatectomy is becoming common.

In addition to the above procedures, treatments like prostate tissue freezing also known as cryosurgery, chemotherapy, open prostatectomy, radical prostatectomy and biological therapy also called immunotherapy are used.

SIIUT (South India Institute for Urology and Transplant), based in Chennai, India offers advanced treatment for all urology disorders including cancer.

Take Care Of Your Kidney...

When the kidneys get diseased, they lose the ability to function normally leading to a condition known as ESRD (End-Stage Renal Disease) or kidney failure. Kidney failure treatment mainly involves an attempt to revive its functioning ability through dialysis or transplant. The treatment depends on the underlying cause and intensity of the disease.

Kidney failure may also brings with it a horde of other diseases such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, anaemia and weak bones. Along with kidney failure treatment, medicines to keep the above-mentioned diseases under control, are also administered.

The usual treatment options for kidney failure includes kidney transplant and dialysis.

  • Dialysis

Dialysis helps in artificial removal of extra fluids and waste products from blood, which are the functions of kidney. The different procedure of dialysis helps in draining the waste with the help of machine or by dialysis solution filled in abdominal cavity with the help of a catheter. This solution is drained off with time. The number and frequency of dialysis treatment depends upon the degree of kidney failure.

A kidney transplant is usually done through a live organ donation. It involves the surgical placement of a healthy kidney from the donor in place of the diseased kidney of the patient. The patient needs lifelong medication to prevent organ rejection from the body. The recovery time depends on the overall health of the patient.

Do You Have Difficulty in Urination?

The urethra is a tube which carries urine from the bladder so it can be expelled out of the body. Usually, the urethra is wide enough for the urine to flow freely through it. When the urethra narrows down, it can restrict urinary flow. This is known as a Urethral Stricture. Urethral stricture is a medical condition which mainly affects men.

Urethral stricture is usually caused due to tissue inflammation or the presence of scar tissue. Scar tissue can be a result of many factors. A straddle injury is a common type of trauma that can lead to urethral stricture. Straddle injuries include falling on a bicycle bar or getting hit in the area close to the scrotum. Other possible causes of urethral stricture include:
  • Pelvic fractures.
  • Catheter insertion.
  • Harmful radiations.
  • Surgery performed on the prostate.
  • A tumour located in close proximity to the urethra.
  • Untreated or repetitive urinary tract infections.
  • The sexually transmitted infections such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia.
  • Weak urine flow or reduction in the volume of urine.
  • Sudden, frequent urge to urinate.
  • Pain and burning sensation during urination.
  • Inability to control urination.
  • Pain in the pelvic or lower abdominal area.
  • Presence of blood in the semen or urine.
  • Darkening of the urine.
  • Inability to urinate.
Nonsurgical: The first mode of treatment is to make the urethra wider using a medical instrument called a dilator. A doctor will begin by passing a small wire through the urethra and into the bladder to dilate it gradually. Another nonsurgical option is permanent urinary catheter placement. This procedure carries risks such as bladder irritation and urinary tract infections.
Surgery: Surgery is one of the options.  This procedure involves the removing of affected tissue and reconstructing the urethra. The results vary based on the stricture size.
Urine Flow Diversion: A catheter in the abdomen will need to divert and drain urine flow. This is very rare and considered a last-resort method when all other methods have failed.
SIIUT is one of the Best Urology Centres in Chennai. They provide the right solutions to all kinds of urinary diseases, with better care and satisfaction.
