Article: Urologic Diseases Dictionary Index

This dictionary defines words that are often used when people talk or write about urologic diseases. It is designed for people who have urologic diseases and their families and friends.

The words are listed in alphabetical order. Some words have many meanings; only those meanings that relate to urologic diseases are included. Words that appear in bold italic are defined elsewhere in the dictionary. A term will refer the reader to another definition only when the second definition gives additional information about a topic that is directly related to the first term.

This information is not a substitute for a visit to your doctor. Talk to a health professional if you have a urologic problem.
