WHAT IS URINARY TRACT INFECTION?
An infection that affects any organ that is involved the process of urine formation to its expulsion through the body is known as the Urinary tract infection. The urinary tract is made up of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra. The urine forms in the kidneys and is transferred to the bladder for storage through the ureters. It then passes through the urethra. The infection resides in any one of these.
