Penile Cancer

Urethral Stricture

A urethral stricture involves scar tissue that causes a narrowing of the urethra — the tube that passes urine from the bladder out through the penis. Strictures can be mild or severe and affect the tissue surrounding the lining of the tube. Scar tissue causing the stricture can be the result of infections (inflammatory), prior instrumentation (iatrogenic), trauma, or sometimes the cause is unknown (idiopathic).

Testicular Cancer

Testicular cancer occurs in the testicles (testes), which are located inside the scrotum, a loose bag of skin underneath the penis. The testicles produce male sex hormones and sperm for reproduction. Compared with other types of cancer, testicular cancer is rare. But testicular cancer is the most common cancer in American males between the ages of 15 and 35. Testicular cancer is highly treatable, even when cancer has spread beyond the testicle. Depending on the type and stage of testicular cancer, you may receive one of several treatments or a combination.

Kidney Stones Medical Therapy

Patients who suffer from recurrent stones may benefit from a medical workup. This may include stone analysis as well as blood and urine tests. Your doctor will decide which tests are appropriate for you. In some patients these tests may reveal abnormalities in your blood or urine, which may predispose you to kidney stones. Sometimes these abnormalities may be corrected with medical therapy, which can help prevent stone growth and recurrence.

Kidney Stone Surgery

For large kidney stones that can’t be effectively treated with lithotripsy or ureteroscopy, your urologist can perform a minimally invasive surgery through a 1-centimeter incision in your back. Using a scope and special tools, the urologist can break apart the stone and suction it out. This typically requires hospitalization at least overnight.

Male Infertility

Male infertility is any health issue in a man that lowers the chances of his female partner getting pregnant. A male factor is solely responsible in about 20 percent of infertile couples and contributory in another 30-40 percent. An initial screening evaluation of the male partner of an infertile couple should be done if pregnancy has not occurred within one year of unprotected intercourse. If pregnancy has not occurred in six months and the female partner is greater than 35 years of age, a workup is also warranted. An earlier evaluation may be warranted if a known male or female infertility risk factor exists or if a man questions his fertility potential.
