The appointment will consist of a detailed history and physical exam. The exam will focus on the abdomen and genitals. In men, inspection of the penis, palpation of the testicles, and a hernia check will occur. If indicated, the prostate is checked by a digital rectal exam. In women, there may be a pelvic exam if indicated. A urine sample may be taken and checked. Urine flow can be analyzed.

What is a meatoplasty, with reference to urology?

Repair of the meatus

Open-uri20120727-5415-13q1xp7
The urethral meatus is the hole where urine exits the body. A meatoplasty is a surgical procedure to fix the meatus, to allow urine to flow more normally. In boys, scarring or narrowing of the meatus can be fixed with a meatoplasty. A meatoplasty may be used in a hypospadias repair, a condition where the urethra does not develop normally. In women, scarring in vulva may require this repair.

What is difference between nephrology and urology ?

Open-uri20120706-15541-1ltp8lm
The differences may be subtle outside of professional circles, but essentially Urology is a surgical field that deals with the urinary tract: kidneys, ureter, bladder, prostate, and genitals. By contrast, Nephrology is a specialty of Internal Medicine, where disorders of the kidney are treated in non-surgical ways (dialysis).
