Men’s Health: Preserving the enjoyment of life

As men age, our bodily functions changes as well. Have issues with your sexual function? Have there been changes in your urinary function? Are you concerned about your risks for urologic cancers that affect the prostate, bladder, kidney and testes?

Urologists play a pivotal role in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of men’s health issues. The key areas that impact a man’s daily life include problems with sexual function, urinary function, and urologic cancer screening.

areas1Sexual function changes deeply impact a man’s well-being, his self-esteem, and intimacy with his partner. As many as 50% of men over the age of 50 have significant problems with their sexual function. Causes may include cardiovascular problems, hormone imbalances, medication interactions and psychological impediments. Understanding the root cause will lead to an effective remedy to this common problem.

areas2Urinary problems affect 1 of every 4 men in America. Having poor urinary control can affect one’s daily activities, affect the quality of sleep and cause socially embarrassing situations. Common causes include urinary infections, prostate enlargement and prostate infections. These are treatable conditions that will greatly improve your quality of life.

Prostate cancer is the most common cause of cancer in men and second leading cause of cancer-death in men in America. Your risks of developing prostate, kidney and bladder cancer can only be adequately evaluated by a trained urologist.
