Men's Health Q & A
What are the main men’s health concerns?
In addition to the conditions that can affect either sex, such as diabetes and hypertension, many men have specific concerns unique to the male anatomy. Some common men’s health concerns include:
- Erectile dysfunction (ED) - the inability to get and/or keep erections
- Hypogonadism - low testosterone production
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) - enlarged prostate
- Prostate cancer
- Chronic infections and other issues related to being uncircumcised
Men may also have specific health risks simply because of their sex. For example, men are up to four times more susceptible to bladder cancer than women.
Whether you need medication, hormone replacement therapy, penile implant, vasectomy, circumcision, a minimally invasive procedure, or surgery, Family Urology Associates has your needs covered. Dr. Haseeb performs many procedures in-office.
What men’s health procedures do you offer in-office?
At Family Urology Associates, Dr. Haseeb offers several men’s health procedures in the office for your convenience. Procedures include:
Vasectomy is a procedure for male sterilization. During this treatment, Dr. Haseeb uses state-of-the-art methods to prevent sperm from mixing with seminal fluid. Within about three months, most men achieve zero sperm count and can thus rely on vasectomy for permanent birth control.
Testosterone injections or pellets
Testosterone is vital to your overall health. It affects your mood, energy level, and libido. For those men with low testosterone levels, testosterone can be supplemented with either injection therapy or with pellets.
Cystoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure in which Dr. Haseeb uses a cystoscope to view your bladder, prostate, and urethra. This procedure is often part of the diagnostics when you have unexplained symptoms or if Dr. Haseeb suspects a condition like benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or bladder cancer. Cystoscopy can also be a treatment in some cases, for example, Dr. Haseeb may remove small tumors during a cystoscopy.
A prostate biopsy is a procedure in which Dr. Haseeb removes tiny sections of prostate tissue using a needle. Then, he tests the tissue for abnormalities indicative of cancer. You may need this test if you have some potential prostate cancer symptoms, such as high prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels.
Ultrasound uses sound waves in many different ways. Ultrasound is a common imaging tool for tumor and other mass detection. Additionally, ultrasound energy is one component of some treatments, such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy for kidney stones.
With the convenience of these in-office procedures, you can take care of all your men’s health needs in one place at Family Urology Associates.
How often should I see a men’s health specialist?
As an experienced urology specialist, Dr. Haseeb is a male anatomy expert, and thus, the perfect men’s health provider. He recommends an ideal checkup schedule for your needs.
Apart from special procedures like vasectomy or circumcision, most men should have appointments at least once a year.
