Urological oncology deals with all cancers related to urology, including prostate cancer, kidney cancer, and bladder cancer. These cancers represent the top 6 cancers in men.
The causes of prostate cancer, as with other cancers, are broad and complex. There is no single perspective on what causes prostate cancer. There are, however, certain factors that are associated with an increased risk of developing prostate cancer such as age, genetics, diet, and lifestyle.
The bladder is a hollow organ that stores urine. It is located inside the lower abdomen, is about the size of a grapefruit and is distensible (elastic) which allows its muscular wall to get larger and smaller. Bladder cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the tissues of the bladder.
Reproductive Health covers anything relating to a male’s ability to reproduce, but can also include family and female reproductive health concerns if applicable. Reproductive health conditions include low testosterone, erectile dysfunction, and also infertility.
Almost all men experience a drop in testosterone as they age. However, an extreme loss of testosterone can lead to many side effects such as fatigue, low sex drive, and mood changes.
About 35% of all infertility issues are caused by the male reproductive system, so it’s not uncommon and definitely not just a woman’s issue. It’s important to get tested if you believe you may be infertile.
Many people experience urinary incontinence, both men and women. Additionally, we also treat conditions such as Kidney Stones and BPH, which can cause issues with your urinary tract and bladder health.
Kidney Stones are formations of acid salts and minerals that can be caused by a number of things. Learn their causes, symptoms, and how to treat them before they become a big problem.
The prostate always enlarges as you get older, but it may get to a point where it can cause issues urinating. It’s important to note BPH and prostate cancer are not related.
A Urinary tract infection, or a UTI, is an infection in the urinary system that is typically found in the bladder. Urinary tract infections are more often found in women than men.
Bladder (or urinary) incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine. It is a serious problem that men are reluctant to discuss with others. When the muscle (sphincter) that holds the bladder neck closed is not strong enough to retain urine in the bladder, the result is urinary incontinence.
