The basic cause of kidney stone occurrence is unknown, but wrong food habits and inadequate fluid intake are to be blamed. Other conditions such as urinary tract infection, gout, arthritis, hypercalciuria (increased calcium levels in urine), enlarged prostate, thyroid disorder, etc are also known to cause urinary stones.
Symptoms constitute problems with the normal urinary process including discomfort, pain and irritability. When the stone obstructs the urine flow, the ureter dilates and stretches causing muscle spasms giving rise to immense gripping pain (renal colic); felt in flank, lower abdomen, groin or leg of affected side. Some stones are called ‘silent’ as they cause no pain. Other symptoms include blood in urine (hematuria), increased frequency of urination, fever/chills, nausea/vomiting, pain/burning during urination etc.
Stones during pregnancy demand conservative treatment. Surgery, if required may be done – ureteric stenting/PCNL, but only during the first half of the pregnancy term. ESWL is absolutely contraindicated.
Screening for prostate cancer is a simple procedure. One may begin with a visit to the urologist. Urologist will be able to help you learn more about the screening process.
One reason that screening for prostate cancer is so important as a man ages is that localized and curable prostate cancer has no symptoms. A decrease in the force of the urinary stream or other voiding issues is most likely due to BPH than prostate cancer. For men with localized prostate cancer and some urination problems, the explanation is that BPH is occurring coincidentally with the prostate cancer.Men with advanced prostate cancer, however, may have similar symptoms as men with BPH, including blood in the urine, painful urination, and a decreased urinary flow. Fortunately, with today’s emphasis on screening and early detection, more than nine in ten prostate cancers are found in potentially curable stages..
No one knows for certain. About one in ten men inherit the tendency toward prostate cancer, although no one has identified a “prostate cancer gene”. Men with a father or brother with prostate cancer diagnosed prior to age 64 have a three times greater risk than men in general. Men in this category should begin screening at age 40. In addition, there are links between diets rich in saturated fats and an increased incidence of prostate cancer, but this evidence is not conclusive..
Yes, levels of calcium, protein, sodium, vitamins C and D, and oxalate-rich foods (dark vegetables, chocolate, nuts, cranberries and coffee and tea, for example) can increase the chances of stones. In general, it’s a good idea to eat less salt and talk to a doctor or dietitian about how much calcium you need daily. If you have had an oxalate kidney stone, you should probably consume fewer oxalate-rich foods. In addition to the ones above, others include spinach, colas, peanuts, beets, rhubarb, berries, beans, tofu, oranges, sweet potatoes and draft beer.
Are there any long term consequences of having a kidney stone?
Kidney stones increase the risk of developing chronic kidney disease. If you have had one stone, you are at increased risk of having another stone. Those who have developed one stone are at approximately 50% risk for developing another within 5 to 7 years..
If you suspect you have erectile dysfunction, please see your primary care physician or a urologist. He or she can perform tests to find out what is causing your problem and refer you to a specialist if needed. Once the cause is identified, there are several treatment options to choose from.
If you are unable to engage in intercourse that is satisfying for yourself and your partner that lasts more than 1-2 minutes prior to orgasm, you have a problem with Premature Ejaculation.
As men get older, sexual function is more likely to decrease, making ED more common. Getting older by itself does not lead to ED can be treated no matter your age. ED is often caused by other health problems that your doctor should know about, like heart disease or diabetes—which are also more common with age.
Testosterone naturally declines in men at a rate of 1-2% each year beginning at age 30; this is completely natural and holds true for most men. Lost testosterone can be easily replaced, however.
An experienced, specialised male health provider such as Men’s Health Clinic can determine your actual levels of testosterone. Our doctors are equipped with the latest technology to measure your blood and ensure an accurate reading.
