Prostate Enlargement An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger. Prostate enlargement happens to almost all men as they get older. An enlarged prostate is often called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is a condition that can affect how you pass urine.
Kidney Stone Kidney stones are small masses of salts and minerals that form inside the kidneys and may travel down the urinary tract. It is also known as urolithiasis.
Kidney Cancer Kidney cancer is a disease in which the kidney cells become malignant and certain tissues of the kidney start to grow uncontrollably, forming a tumor.
Cancer of Penis Penile cancer is a malignant growth, usually found on the glans or foreskin of the penis but can also occur on the shaft of the penis.
Testicular Cancer Testicular cancer is a malignant growth that 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.
Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer is cancer that occurs in the prostate -a small walnut-shaped gland in men that produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm.
Bladder Stone Bladder stones are hard masses of minerals in your bladder. Bladder stones develop when the minerals in concentrated urine crystallize. This often happens when you can't completely empty your bladder.
Uretric Stone Ureteric calculi or stones are those lying within the ureter, at any point from the ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) to the ureterovesical junction (UVJ).
Bladder Cancer Bladder cancer begins when cells in the urinary bladder start to grow uncontrollably. As more cancer cells develop, they can form a tumor and spread to other areas of the body.
Urinary Incontinence Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. It occurs when the muscles in the bladder that control the flow of urine contract or relax involuntarily or there is a loss of bladder control.
Meatal Stenosis Meatal stenosis or urethral stricture is a narrowing (stenosis) of the opening of the urethra at the external meatus, thus constricting the opening through which urine leaves the body from the urinary bladder.
