Incidence of testicular cancer is rising. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 7600 cases are diagnosed and about 400 men die of the disease each year in the United States. The disease is most prevalent in men between the ages of 18 and 32 and is approximately 5 times more common in Caucasians than African Americans. Germany, Scandinavia, and New Zealand have the highest incidence of testicular cancer and Asia and Africa have the lowest.  Makie sure you do your testicular self examination and should you feel any lumps, notify your urologist immediately.  The earlier you catch this type of cancer, the better your prognosis.

The Journal of Urology 2011 states that 1 in 5 men have the problem of nocturia, which is getting up at night to go to the bathroom.   Researchers have found that this could be a signal for a significant health problem like urinary tract infections, heart disease and diabetes, not to mention all the urological problems that could be causing it.  Also, in the elderly sleep disturbances at night are a major cause of falling.

Did you know that any blood in your urine is a sign of something wrong?  Causes of hematuria could be a urinary tract infection, kidney stones, interstitial cystitis, or a urologic cancer originating somewhere in the urinary tract.    Any sign of any blood, even the slightest, should be checked out by a urologist.   Tests may include a urinalysis and culture to rule out any infection.  If that is negative, then a cystoscopy could be done to check the inside of the bladder.  Also imaging studies, such as CT scans, or an IVP may be warranted to check the entire urinary tract for any tumors.   If any tumor is found a biopsy would be done.   Based on the diagnostic testing, a tratment plan would be put together.  Bladder and kidney tumors, if found and treated early, are very manageable and the prognosis is very good.

I am pleased to announce the great response I have had with my patients who have undergone treatment for the sometimes debilitating problem of urinary leakage and incontinence.   One patient said she can't believe the difference and is so thrilled to have her active lifestyle back again after struggling with incontinence and bladder urinary problems for years.  1 out of every 3 women have a significant problem with urinary leakage after their childbearing years.  What's your thoughts on this?  Is it an embarrassing subject to talk to your doctor about?  How can I, as a physician, educate this community on treatment options?  I offer treatment with the Interstim Implant, Renessa collagen injections, Uroplasty treatment, medication and sometimes surgery.
