At Adult Pediatric Urology & Urogynecology, PC, we take men’s health very seriously. Often times these are issues that go undetected or untreated due to fear or embarrassment. However, a clean bill of health is nothing you should be embarrassed about. Men face a number of unique health issues that should be addressed and screened regularly. Take a look at some of the information on the following men’s health topics:
Most men experience occasional challenges with achieving erections from time to time. For some, this issue becomes a persistent and more pronounced concern, leading to potential negative effects such as diminished self-esteem, performance-related anxiety, feelings of depression, and heightened stress. Erectile dysfunction (ED) has the potential to impact the overall quality of a marriage or intimate relationship. The good news is there are many safe and effective treatment options for ED available.
A vasectomy is a simple, safe, easy, and inexpensive method of birth control when compared with other birth control methods such as condoms, oral contraceptives, and implants. After an initial consult appointment, your vasectomy will be scheduled in our outpatient surgery center. It is a minor surgery that should take about 20 minutes. Another popular option we offer our patients is a no-scalpel vasectomy. Benefits of a no-scalpel vasectomy in Omaha are less bleeding, swelling, and pain.
Men can experience a range of symptoms if testosterone decreases more than it should. Low testosterone, or low T, is diagnosed when levels fall below 300 ng/dL. A normal range is typically 300 to 1,000 ng/dL, though there is no universal laboratory definition. A blood test called a serum testosterone test is used to determine your level of circulating testosterone.
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to a non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland that happens to most men as they grow older. This bladder enlargement may lead to a variety of urinary symptoms including a weak urinary stream, difficulty starting the stream, frequent urination, urgent urination, and arising from sleep to urinate.
