Do not smoke!

There’s a reason behind everything. Smoking is one of the leading causes of many urologic conditions. Smoking can contribute to different conditions that we have identified in this article. At NU Hospitals, you’ll connect with the best set of urologists in Bangalore where you’re assured to get diagnosed just about the right way. Let’s get to know some of the conditions:

Bladder Cancer is far too common cancer in both men and women. Smoking causes harmful chemicals and drugs to collect in the urine. These chemicals affect the lining of the bladder and raise your bladder cancer risk.

Erectile Dysfunction is a result of poor blood flow to the penis. Smoking can harm blood vessels, which then creates an impact on the blood flow. This can result in not being able to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.

Kidney Stones are a very common health issue of the urinary tract. Smoking has been shown to extensively add to the risk of getting kidney stones.

Incontinence (i.e. urine leakage) and Overactive Bladder (OAB), have impacted the population to a great extent. Smoking bothers the ladder and can cause frequent urination. Coughing spasms can also occur that can lead to leakage of urine.

Infertility impacts both men and women and about 50% of infertility cases can be directed to the male. Smoking can harm the genetic formulation of eggs and sperm. The infertility rate for smokers is twice the rates for those who do not smoke.

In case you smoke, consult your urologist about ways to quit so you can lower your chances of having these urologic conditions.
