Men’s Conditions and Symptoms
Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition in men as they age. It is caused by the growth of the prostate gland, which can press on the urethra and make it difficult to urinate. BPH can cause a variety of symptoms, including:
- Frequent urination, especially at night
- Difficulty starting or stopping urination
- Weak or interrupted flow of urine
- Pain or burning during urination
- Urinary retention (the inability to urinate)
BPH is not a cancerous condition, but it can be uncomfortable and disruptive. There are a number of treatment options available, including medications, surgery, and minimally invasive procedures.
Prostatic artery embolization (PAE) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat BPH. During PAE, a catheter is inserted into the artery that supplies blood to the prostate. Tiny particles are then injected into the artery, which blocks the blood flow to the prostate. This causes the prostate to shrink, which can relieve the symptoms of BPH.
Varicocele is a condition in which the veins in the scrotum become enlarged. This can cause a number of symptoms, including:
- A noticeable lump in the scrotum
- A feeling of heaviness or discomfort in the scrotum
- Pain, especially after standing or sitting for long periods of time
- Shrinkage of the affected testicle
In most cases, varicocele does not cause any symptoms. However, if you do experience any of the symptoms listed above, it is important to see a doctor. Varicocele can be treated with surgery, and early treatment can help to prevent complications, such as infertility.
Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the rectum and anus. They are a common problem, affecting up to 50% of adults at some point in their lives. Hemorrhoids can be either internal or external. Internal hemorrhoids develop inside the rectum, while external hemorrhoids develop under the skin around the anus. The most common symptoms of hemorrhoids are bleeding, pain, itching, and a feeling of fullness in the anal area.
Minimally invasive treatments for hemorrhoids are usually done in an outpatient setting and do not require general anesthesia. They are generally effective in relieving the symptoms of hemorrhoids, and the recurrence rate is low.
If you are experiencing symptoms of hemorrhoids, it is important to see a doctor to get a diagnosis and discuss treatment options.
Joint pain is a common symptom that can affect people of all ages. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including arthritis, injury, and overuse. The pain can be mild or severe, and it can range from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain.
