Kidneys, bladder & prostate gland

The kidneys and bladder form the urinary system together with the ureters and urethra. It is primarily used to regulate the water and electrolyte balance and to eliminate many metabolic waste products. Reduced capacity may have a variety of effects on the body. Due to their close proximity symptoms in the urinary and reproductive system region have reciprocal effects on each other. Specialists therefore often term these symptoms urogenital tract disorders. Symptoms in this region often have a psychological component. This is reflected in idioms such as "it gets me down" or in the term "largest teardrop in the body" for the bladder.
