Conditions involving the urinary tract include infection of the kidney, bladder, urethra and inflammation of the bladder is the most common. If the bacteria spreads to the kidney, the affected person develops symptoms that include a fever, pain in the back or side below the ribs, nausea, or vomiting. Kidney infections need to be treated quickly, are more serious than bladder infections and less common. Women more than men are affected by urinary tract infections.
