Bladder Problems and Erectile Dysfunction

  1. Benign Prostate Problems

    The prostate gland can develop several conditions that are not cancerous. Pain, inflammation, and impotency are common problems.

  2. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)

    BPH is a condition in which the prostate gland becomes very enlarged and may cause problems associated with urination.

  3. Bladder and Bowel Dysfunction

    Bladder dysfunction and bowel dysfunction refer to problems with urinating and passing stools. These may lead to the unwanted passage of urine or stool, called urinary or fecal incontinence.

  4. Impotence / Erectile Dysfunction

    For most men, erectile dysfunction is caused by physical problems, usually related to the blood supply of the penis. Many advances have occurred in both diagnosis and treatment of erectile dysfunction.

  5. Incontinence: A Fairly Common Problem

    Bladder and bowel control are complex processes that involve the brain, spinal cord and muscles of the bladder, bowel and pelvis. Loss of bladder or bowel control can be caused by problems with any of these components.

  6. Interstitial Cystitis

    Interstitial cystitis is a complex, chronic disorder marked by an inflamed or irritated bladder wall. It can lead to scarring and stiffening of the bladder and decreased bladder capacity.

  7. Prostatitis

    Prostatitis is the most common prostate problem in men younger than 50. Some estimates state that at least half of all men, at some point in their lives, will develop symptoms of prostatitis.

  8. Urinary Incontinence

    Urinary incontinence is the loss of urine control, or the inability to hold your urine until you can reach a bathroom.

  9. Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)

    Urinary tract infections are a serious, but common, health problem that affects millions of people each year. Women are especially prone to urinary tract infections.

  10. What Is Erectile Dysfunction?

    It is normal for men to experience changes in erectile function, such as taking longer to achieve an erection. When the problem becomes persistent, it can be a sign of a physical or emotional problem.
