Epididymitis

The Facts About Epididymitis

Although epididymitis is a common genital inflammation, it's still largely unknown. Learn more.

STIs and urinary issues cause most cases, so prevent the former and address the latter quickly.

Treatment-resistant conditions dwell under the umbrella of chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

It's true, STIs are a common source of epididymitis, but also be aware of other possible causes.

Hydroceles

The Facts About Hydroceles

If your scrotum is swollen, you may have a hydrocele. Here's what you need to know.

A urologist can determine whether your swollen scrotum needs treatment, and you have options.

While mostly harmless, this fluid-filled sac in the scrotum can lead to the need for treatment.

Here's how to talk with your healthcare provider about the swelling in your scrotum.

This generally harmless condition can still cause painful issues that men will need to address.

Addressing the symptoms of this scrotum condition is simple enough, even if you can't avoid it.

The Facts About Peyronie's Disease

No erect penis is perfectly straight, but a strong curve could indicate Peyronie's disease.

The noticeable bend of Peyronie's disease isn't always due to one distinct injury.

Poor management of blood glucose may impair the healing of tiny tears in penile tissue.

An invasive procedure on your penis can be scary, but a skilled surgeon can straighten you out.

Hypospadias

The Facts About Hypospadias

Diagnosed in boys after birth, hypospadias is a urological condition that is highly treatable.

This congenital condition is often fixed in newborns, but if not, men can suffer its effects.

Learning how to deal with this common penile birth defect can be a lifelong process.

Correcting this penile birth defect may boost self-confidence, but be aware of the risks.

Premature Ejaculation

PE can strain any relationship. Recognizing the issue is the first step to fixing the problem.

Diabetes, thyroid disease and prostatitis are among the ailments potentially linked to PE.

This grown-up version of red light, green light can help men overcome premature ejaculation.

Ads for these sex health products make bold claims. But urologists know what really works.

PEVR

The Facts About Perceived Ejaculate Volume Reduction

So your ejaculations have a little less oomph. Is age to blame or are other factors at play?

PEVR can be a cause for concern, but often the perception is the underlying issue.

A decrease in semen volume can be caused by many factors, as well as indicate other troubles.

Support a partner with perceived ejaculate volume reduction by taking a proactive approach.
