Bladder Pain? – Diagnosing and Treating Interstitial Cystitis

Do you go to the bathroom too much? Are you experiencing frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs)? Does your bladder hurt, or are you feeling discomfort in the low abdomen/pelvis (lower belly) or the perineum (bicycle seat area)? You may be suffering from Interstitial Cystitis (IC). This benign but annoying inflammatory condition affects the bladders of both men and women. The symptoms are often written off to “recurrent prostatitis” in men, and to “frequent UTIs” in women. If you have had these problems, and haven’t discussed the possibility of IC with your doctor, then it is time for another visit.

Prostate Cancer: Understanding All the Options

One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Hopefully, it will be diagnosed at an early stage, when it is curable. Hopefully, a yearly PSA (the blood test for prostate specific antigen) and a DRE (digital rectal exam, also known as a “finger wave”) are being followed. When the DRE is suspicious, or the PSA is elevated, or rises more than 0.75 per year, then a prostate biopsy must be discussed with that man. There are no symptoms of early prostate cancer. By the time a man develops symptoms from the cancer, it is usually at an advanced stage. That is why a yearly check up is so critical.

Sexual Wellness: A Closer Look at Sexual Health in Men and Women

I am constantly surprised by my patients. It seems there is no age limit on having a healthy sexual relationship. Many patients, well into their 70s 80s and even 90s, are still enjoying the benefits of a healthy sex life. And yet, so many others have given up on their sexual health either because their partner cannot help them, or because they are unsure of where to seek help, or what help is available.
