Adrenal Tumors

The adrenal glands sit atop each kidney and produce hormones that give instructions to virtually every organ and tissue in your body.

Testing and Treatment

The adrenal glands sit atop each kidney and produce hormones that give instructions to virtually every organ and tissue in your body.

Most problematic adrenal tumors are treated with medication to control symptoms and followed by surgery to remove the tumor. Surgery is done laparoscopically through a few small openings rather than through a traditional surgical incision.

Kidney Stones

Kidney stones are one of the most common and painful urological problems. Kidney stones are hard masses or crystals that build up on the inside of your kidneys. They can vary in size from a grain of salt to a golf ball.

Testing and Treatment

An X-ray or CT scan will reveal the location, size and number of stones, all of which will be used to determine appropriate treatment.

Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer usually begins in the inner lining of the bladder, in special cells called transitional cells. It can also grow in other parts of your urinary tract system including your kidneys, ureters, and urethra.

Testing and Treatment

If your doctor cannot prove that another condition is causing blood your the urine, he or she will perform tests to confirm or rule out bladder cancer. These tests commonly include a study of your urine to look for cancer cells, a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis, and a cystoscopy or an examination of the bladder with a lighted scope passed through the urethra into the bladder.

BPH – Enlarged Prostate

Beginning at about age 40, hormonal changes cause the number of cells in a man’s prostate to increase causing the prostate to grow and constrict the urine tube that runs through its center. An enlarged prostate, also know as benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH, is not cancerous, but over time it can cause bothersome urinary symptoms.

Testing and Treatment

A man’s feelings about his symptoms are a major factor in determining the most appropriate treatment. If the man is extremely unhappy with his symptoms, he may elect a more aggressive, immediate form of therapy. If he is only mildly bothered but still wishes to pursue treatment, he may elect to use medications.

To quantify the effect of urinary symptoms on a man’s quality of life, urologists use a symptom questionnaire developed by the American Urological Association. The higher the score on the questionnaire, the more likely the patient needs aggressive treatment.
