Your treatment will depend on what's causing the condition and how severe it is.
the first stage of treatment is often to drain the urine out of your kidneys by inserting a tube called a catheter into your bladder or kidney(s). This will help relieve the pressure on your kidneys.

Once the pressure has been relieved, the cause of the build-up of urine may need to be treated. The treatments used will depend on why the condition developed. For example:

kidney stones may be removed during an operation or broken up using sound wavesan
enlarged prostate can be treated with medication or surgery to remove some of the prostate
blockages in the ureters can be treated using surgery to insert a small tube called a stent.
