We treat common male urologic conditions including prostatitis, erectile dysfunction, infertility, vasectomies and many more.
Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate. It’s relatively common among men — up to 50% of men will have an encounted with this condition during their lifetime. It can be either sudden and severe (acute) or ongoing (chronic).
Acute bacterial prostatitis caused by a bacterial infection: This inflammation is the least common to be diagnosed. When it is, it is generally in younger or middle-aged men.
Chronic bacterial prostatitis: Like acute bacterial prostatitis, except it is slower to develop and has less severe symptoms. Men with this condition often have recurring urinary tract infections.
Chronic non-bacterial prostatitis, also known as (chronic pelvic pain syndrome): This is the most common type diagnosed. The underlying cause is not entirely known, but research suggests it may be due to inflammation or muscle spasms in the pelvic floor muscles.
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH)
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia is an enlarged prostate. This is not a cancerous condition.
- Decreased force of urine
- Frequent urination
- Having to get up at night to urinate (nocturia)
- Dribbling urine after the bladder is emptied
- Inability to urinate – in severe cases
Prostate Cancer affects 1 in 9 American men. In its early stages, it can be asymptomatic (without symptoms). This is the leading cancer among men. Early detection continues to improve as men adhere to prostate cancer screening recommendations.
Screening guidelines suggest men begin prostate screening when they reach their 50s. African American men, and men who have a family history of prostate cancer, should begin screening by the age of 40.
Benign Prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a benign condition that affects men as they age and is the most common prostate disease in men over the age of 50. — nih.gov
