Male Urology — Conditions

Problems with urinary urgency/frequency, infertility, erectile dysfunction, and the prostate or genitourinary (also known as urogenital) system can be found in men of all ages. These issues can be difficult to admit and even harder to discuss with your urologist. Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona provides the region’s most advanced urological care, and in doing so strives to create a comfortable environment where highly sensitive topics are a little easier to discuss. If you have questions or concerns regarding your urinary tract or reproductive system, the urologists at our medical center have answers and treatment solutions. From male urinary incontinence and kidney stones to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH, also known as an enlarged prostate) and prostate cancer, Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizonas diagnoses and treats male patients – young and old – with a variety of conditions whose symptoms impact overall health and/or hinder quality of life.

Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona treats patients living in and around Phoenix, Arizona who have the following male urological problems:

Conditions

  • Aesthetic Procedures – Penile abnormalities can occur as a result of a birth (congenital) defect, or they can be the result of surgical procedures, such as circumcision. These abnormalities can cause a variety of emotional problems, like low self-esteem, and physical issues, like sexual dysfunction.
  • Male Infertility – If you and your partner are having problems conceiving after at least one year of unprotected intercourse, you and/or your partner may be considered infertile.
  • Erectile Dysfunction – The inability to achieve or maintain an erection suitable for intercourse.

 

  • Prostate – is a blockage at the level where the kidney meets the ureter. Causes of kidney obstruction in women may include a congenital malformation (the patient is born with the obstruction), stone disease, infection, and trauma.
  • Bladder – is a bacterial infection of the kidneys (or upper urinary tract). Causes of kidney infection in women include pregnancy, diabetes, cancer, kidney stones, abnormalities of the urinary tract, and when bacteria gets into the urinary tract following sexual intercourse.
  • Kidney & Ureter – is rare and often spreads (metastasizes) to adjacent soft tissue but tends to be localized when diagnosed. Urethral cancer is more common in women and women over the age of 60 are at an increased risk.


Patients with urinary incontinence often avoid social situations out of the fear that issues of urgency or frequency could trigger at the wrong time and cause embarrassment. Patients with impotence, infertility, premature ejaculation, or other erectile dysfunction problems often experience diminished sexual satisfaction, sexual suppression, and a lack of self-esteem.
