Men dealing with urologic conditions need a resource they can access to understand their diagnosis and the potential treatment options available to them. This page discusses many common male urological conditions, including:
Impotence: The inability to attain or maintain an erection is a condition that affects many men. Sometimes it occurs because of an underlying physical condition, and other times it is the result of an injury. Regardless of the cause, treatment is available.
Prostate Cancer: Treatment for the most common form of male cancer focuses on removing the prostate gland and its cancerous tissue in the least invasive manner possible in order to limit the possibility of side effects.
Prostate Health: Outside of prostate cancer, men can suffer from an enlarged prostate (BPH) and prostatitis, which can cause uncomfortable and embarrassing urinary symptoms.

In addition to these health conditions, many men seek the help of a urologist for reproductive health. Male reproductive health concerns include:
Male Infertility: Approximately half of all fertility cases are male fertility cases. Men can struggle with infertility for a variety of reasons, some of which are treatable.
Vasectomy: A vasectomy provides a permanent birth control option to men who are no longer interested in becoming fathers.
Vasectomy Reversal: Men who have had a vasectomy and have decided they would like to be fertile again can choose to have a vasectomy reversal to make this possible.
Every treatment or procedure has its own risks and potential benefits, so be sure to discuss all treatments with your doctor as you weigh the pros and cons of the different options.
