Diagnosis and treatment of urolithiasis
As the symptoms coincide with those of many other diseases, it is necessary to see a doctor as soon as possible, who will carry out an examination and be able to identify the disease that is troubling the patient.
In addition to the examination itself and the anamnesis, the doctor may also prescribe general urinalysis, blood chemistry, abdominal ultrasound and, in rare cases, a computer tomography.
When it is determined that it is urolithiasis, treatment is prescribed. Treatment may be conservative or surgical. In the early stages, the patient may be treated with medications to encourage the stone to recede on its own.
If the stone is big, it has to be removed surgically. There are methods of treating the stone with a laser, which enables the stone to be broken up into smaller pieces, which then fall out on their own.
