PSA Testing For Prostate Cancer-To Screen or Not Screen, What’s the Answer?
I am frequently asked by patients about screening for prostate cancer with PSA testing. This article will discuss the evidence as well as my recommendations for my patients.
Drip, Drip, Drip-When the Prostate Gland Causes Constant Dribbling
Some men have a blockage to the flow of urine and the bladder no matter how much it contracts or squeezes cannot fully empty the urine contents residing in the bladder. As a result, there may be a constant dribbling of urine. This is referred to as overflow incontinence. Overflow incontinence is more common in older men and is often due to an enlarged prostate.
5 Things Men Should Know About Benign Prostate Gland Enlargement
Benign enlargement of the prostate gland is natural consequence of aging. Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) will be present in about one quarter of men by the time they reach the age of 55. This figure reaches 50% of all men age 75 and older. The prostate gland that produces fluid for the transport of sperm and surrounds the urethra that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, can have a tendency to grow with age for reasons not entirely known and results in compression of the urethra resulting in symptoms of decrease in urine flow, dribbling after urination, and getting up at night to urinate. Here are 5 facts men should know about their prostate and benign enlargement of the prostate gland:
Low Testosterone (T)
Women experience menopause and men also have a fall in their testosterone the male hormone produced in the testicles, also decreases a small amount after age 30 but becomes symptomatic around age 50. The problem affects millions of American men who have decreased sex drive, lethargy, loss of muscle mass, decrease in bone density, and even irritabilitydepression. The diagnosis is easily made and help is available to nearly all men who suffer from low “T” levels.
The most common urologic procedure is vasectomy or male sterilization which is performed on over 500,000 men every year. We offer the no-scalpel, no-needle technique which causes little pain and discomfort, almost no bleeding, and can be done in the office in an outpatient setting in minutes.
Enlarged Prostate Gland (T)
Benign enlargement of the prostate gland affects nearly 35 million American men. In the past the procedure of choice was a surgical procedure, transurethral resection of the prostate gland, which is often referred to as the rotor router procedure. Now a new first line treatment is the prostate urethral lift, or PUL. Please contact us if you would like more information on this procedure and you can receive a DVD and more material that explains this effective treatment option.
Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Impotence
ED affects more than 30 million American men….and also a problem that affects their partners. ED is a common problem in men with diabetes, high blood pressure, and a side effect of hundreds of medications. Men can easily be evaluated in the outpatient setting and can often receive treatment on the first visit to the office. For men who have tried Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis but did not receive the results they were looking for, they need to know that there are other treatment options. My message to you is that men who have ED do not need to suffer the “tragedy of the bedroom”. Help is available for nearly every man.
