Male Urology – conditions that require treatment include men experiencing problems with urination, erectile dysfunction, incontinence, infertility or other prostate or genitourinary problems
- Male Fertility
A man’s fertility generally relies on the quantity and quality of his sperm. If the number of sperm a man ejaculates is low or if the sperm are of a poor quality, it will be difficult, and sometimes impossible, for him to cause a pregnancy. Male infertility is diagnosed when, after testing both partners, reproductive problems have been found in the male.
- Male Sexual Dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is any physical or psychological problem that prevents you or your partner from getting sexual satisfaction. Male sexual dysfunction is a common health problem affecting men of all ages, but is more common with increasing age. Treatment can often help men suffering from sexual dysfunction. The main types of male sexual dysfunction are:
- Erectile dysfunction (difficulty getting/keeping an erection)
- Premature ejaculation (reaching orgasm too quickly)
- Delayed or inhibited ejaculation (reaching orgasm too slowly or not at all)
- Low libido (reduced interest in sex)
- Genital Organ Malformation
Congenital Anomalies in Males conditions with undeveloped or malformed deformities which include Penile agenesis or Congenital absence of the penis (aphallia), Penile duplication, Ectopic and accessory scrotum are few conditions.
- Genital Organ Tumors
Tumors affecting the male genetics, whether cancerous or benign are of various types. Symptoms include genital sores, genital warts, genital rash, genital itching, Genital bruise, Genital swelling or other types. The treatment has to be planned based on the type of tumor.
- Scrotal Infection
Epididymitis is infection or less frequently, inflammation of the epididymis (the coiled tube on the back of the testicle). The majority of men that develop epididymitis develop it because of a bacterial infection.Two main groups of organisms cause most cases of epididymitis: sexually transmitted organisms and coliforms (organisms that commonly live in the intestines. Mild scrotal pain, urinary symptoms, or any of the other symptoms of epididymitis listed above merit a visit to a health care practitioner because the treatment for epididymitis involves prescription antibiotics.
A varicocele is when veins become enlarged inside your scrotum (the pouch of skin that holds your testicles).These veins are like varicose veins in the leg. Varicoceles form during puberty, and can grow larger and easier to notice over time. Most of the time, varicoceles cause no problems and are harmless. Less often varicoceles can cause pain, problems fathering a child, or 1 testicle to grow slower or shrink.
A hydrocele is a painless buildup of watery fluid around one or both testicles that causes the scrotum or groin area to swell. This swelling may be unsightly and uncomfortable, but it usually is not painful and generally is not dangerous. Hydroceles in newborns are congenital but for adults it is acquired.
