A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection in any part of your urinary system — your kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra.
However, most infections involve the lower urinary tract — the bladder and the urethra.
Women are at greater risk of developing a UTI than men are.
Infection limited to your bladder can be painful and annoying. However, serious consequences can occur if a UTI spreads to your kidneys.
Doctors typically treat urinary tract infections with antibiotics.
