Epididymitis

Understand what goes into treating the acute and chronic versions of the urological condition.

A urologist explains how common problems arise for the duct transporting semen.

Doctors need to determine the type of infection before they can prescribe the treatment.

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

Hydroceles

This benign scrotal condition is a mystery to most people. Get the basics and help your man.

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.

Varicoceles

Less invasive procedures are available for this painful and uncomfortable scrotal condition.

Varicoceles usually don't require treatment unless they affect quality of life or fertility.

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.

Complications and Procedures

Discharge and painful urination are symptoms of the inflammatory condition urethritis.

Peyronie's Disease

In addition to curvature, penile indentation is a common presentation of the condition.

Why does my penis curve? Some men need to ask, and too few know the answer or the treatments.

The medical community knows a lot about this penis condition, but misinformation persists.

Most research is inconclusive, but men see results with meds, devices and injections.

Hypospadias

With or without surgical repair, this penile birth defect can present challenges.

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

Some men learn to last longer in bed by taking matters into their own (or a partner's) hands.

If your hormones aren't in line, chances are your orgasms aren't, either.

Antidepressants, especially SSRIs, are effective for many men who ejaculate too quickly.

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

PEVR

Choices you make—and some factors you can't control—may affect your sperm quality.

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.
