Men’s Health Q & A
What are common men’s health issues?
At DurraniMD, Dr. Durrani diagnoses and treats a comprehensive range of men’s health issues that affect the kidneys, bladder, urinary tract, and male sexual organs.
Some of the most common men’s health issues include:
- Prostate cancer
- Kidney stones
- Low testosterone
- Erectile dysfunction
- Peyronie’s disease
- Sexual health issues
While men can also experience health problems in other body systems and organs, Dr. Durrani specializes in urologic and reproductive health needs.
When should I talk to a urologist about men’s health issues?
Men’s health issues can cause various uncomfortable and distressing symptoms, which you might feel embarrassed to talk about. For example, you might not want to ask about erectile dysfunction or incontinence. But these issues are often easily treated once diagnosed.
Some of the signs that you should make an appointment with Dr. Durrani include:
- Painful urination
- Feeling the urge to urinate but not releasing much liquid
- Hematuria (blood in your urine)
- Severe pelvic or lower back pain
- Consistent problems achieving or maintaining an erection
- Abnormal penis curvature
You might also want to make an appointment if you have low testosterone symptoms, including weight gain, muscle mass loss, fatigue, and libido loss.
If you’re interested in a vasectomy or adult circumcision, Dr. Durrani offers consultations and expert procedures.
How are men’s health issues diagnosed?
Dr. Durrani begins with a comprehensive consultation and exam to confirm your diagnosis. He reviews your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle before completing a thorough physical exam.
Dr. Durrani also uses lab tests, including blood work and urinalysis, and diagnostic imaging studies like X-rays, ultrasounds, and MRIs to collect more information about your condition.
After your diagnosis is complete, Dr. Durrani creates a customized treatment plan to relieve your symptoms and restore your health.
What are some available treatments for men’s health issues?
While every men’s health issue requires individualized attention and care, there are several treatment categories.
Medication, including hormone therapy, is a common first approach to treating men’s health issues. Depending on your needs, Dr. Durrani might also recommend lifestyle modifications like adjusting your diet and exercise habits or quitting smoking.
Dr. Durrani might also recommend nonsurgical treatments like physical therapy, extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy, laser therapy, or transurethral needle ablation.
When less invasive treatments don’t relieve your condition, Dr. Durrani might recommend a surgical procedure such as a prostatectomy to correct prostate cancer or BPH, or a scar tissue removal procedure to address Peyronie’s disease.
