Adrenal tumors are cancerous or non-cancerous growths on the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands control many processes in the body and secrete hormones which help regulate chemical balance, regulate metabolism and supplement other glands.
Adult circumcision is a surgical procedure involving the removal of the adult male foreskin.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, also known as an enlarged prostate, can cause a range of symptoms including frequent or incomplete urination.
Bladder Cancer is a potentially aggressive tumor that arises from the cells that line the inside of the bladder – the part of your body that holds and releases urine.
Blood in the urine can either be gross (visual to the naked eye) or microscopic (visual under the microscope).
Ejaculatory dysfunction can either be classified as premature ejaculation (occurring very soon after penetration or sooner than you or your partner desires) or delayed/anejaculation (occurring after a prolonged period or time causing patient or partner distress).
Prostate specific antigen, also known as PSA, is made in the prostate and circulates in the bloodstream. It is a non-specific test that can indicate an enlarged prostate (BPH), urinating issues, infection of the bladder or prostate or potentially prostate cancer.
Epididymitis-orchitis is marked by inflammation and/or infection of the epididymis or testicle and may be associated with urinary tract infection, sexually transmitted diseases, trauma, inflammation, enlarged prostate or urethral scar tissue.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) – also called impotence – is the inability to get and maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. Stress incontinence happens due to physical activity or increases in abdominal pressure (i.e. coughing, laughing, lifting)
A hydrocele is defined as excess fluid in the sac surrounding your testicle.
Infertility is the difficulty of becoming pregnant. In males, it may be secondary to low sperm production, misshapen or immobile sperm, or blockages that prevent the delivery of sperm.
Interstitial Cystitis - also known as Painful Bladder Syndrome - is a chronic condition that causes uncomfortable pressure and pain in the bladder and/or pelvic area.
Kidney Cancer are tumors that arise in the kidney – two bean-shaped organs whose main purpose is to clean toxins and other waste products from the blood.
Kidney Stones are accumulated pieces of un-dissolved salts and minerals which can grow to the point where they can cause sudden, intense pain as they pass from the kidneys through the ureters.
Low Testosterone, also known as hypogonadism, is more common in men as they age, but can be secondary to issues with the pituitary gland or testicles, as well as lifestyle factors.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. Stress incontinence happens due to physical activity or increases in abdominal pressure (i.e. coughing, laughing, lifting).
Overactive Bladder is a condition characterized by bladder contractions that occur without “permission” from the patient. This may or may not cause Urinary Incontinence, or leakage of urine.
A sheet of muscles and ligaments called the Pelvic Floor supports the uterus, small bowel, colon and bladder. If pelvic floor muscles are weak, your organs may drop and bulge into the vagina.
The penis is the male organ responsible for sexual function and urine evacuation. Penile cancer can arise from the foreskin, head of the penis or the shaft. The most common type of penile cancer is squamous cell carcinoma.
Peyronie’s disease is a condition by which a small scar forms in the lining of the penis resulting in penile curvature, indentation or pain.
If the foreskin of the penis cannot be retracted, or is difficult or painful to retract, the condition is known as phimosis. If the foreskin is retracted but cannot be placed back over the head of the penis, the condition is known as paraphimosis, which is a medical emergency.
Prostate Cancer begins in the prostate gland – a small, walnut-sized structure that is part of the male reproductive system. It is the most common cause of cancer.
The prostate gland surrounds the urethra as it exits the bladder. The prostate grows as you get older and can cause health issues if it gets too large.
Prostatitis is a common, often painful condition that can happen to men of all ages. Pelvic pain in and around the prostate may be from an infection, injury, or some other problem.
Testicular Cancer is a rapidly growing form of cancer beginning in one or both testicles. It is the most common cause of cancer in men between 18-40 years, but can happen at any age.
Testicular pain, while alarming to a patient, is rarely a sign of a significant medical problem. Any man with ongoing testicular pain should seek appropriate medical evaluation in order to exclude a significant medical problem.
A urethral stricture is scar tissue that forms in the urethra, the tube which drains urine from the bladder. Some strictures cause no symptoms, while others make it difficult or impossible to urinate. This thin tube also has an important role in ejaculation for men.
Urinary Tract Infections are caused by germs that get into your urinary tract via your urethra, the tube that carries urine from your bladder to outside your body.
Vaginal Pain may be caused by insufficient lubrication resulting from low estrogen levels or inadequate foreplay.
A varicocele is a dilation of the veins of the pampiniform plexus (the veins that drain blood from the testicle). Most varicoceles cause no symptoms and are usually detected during an evaluation for infertility. Occasionally, varicoceles may cause discomfort.
During a Vasectomy, a doctor closes or blocks the two tubes, called vas deferens, that carry sperm to the penis for ejaculation.
