Different types of Urinary Tract Infection

  •  You can get an infection in the lower (bladder and urethra) or upper (kidney and ureters) part of the urinary tract and doctors often describe them as lower or upper UTIs.  
  • Upper UTIs are potentially more serious than lower UTIs because there is a risk of kidney damage.
  • An infection of the bladder is called cystitis, and an infection of the urethra is known as urethritis.
