    Surgery for an elderly man

    HISTORY: My father is 86. He had a prostatectomy maybe 15-20 years ago, then had an artificial sphincter installed. He used it until the urethral cuff eroded in 2015, when he had emergency surgery to remove the cuff. His urethra's healing was going well, and was being monitored his urologist in the hope of putting in a new cuff, but my father incurred some seizures and a serious head injury which put the whole plan on hold indefinitely. In 2016, Dad moved to a nursing home near me, and recovered....

    Son painful urination not a UTI

    My son is 14 he has high functioning Autism. He has painful urination that the Urologist has not figured out. He has had it for about 3 plus years. He does take Strattera but both his primary care Doctor and his Urologist say that can’t be the cause. It is listed as a rare side effect of Strattera. He has seen two other Urologist in the past and they just wrote it off as his Autism. My son is very intelligent a 4.0GPA and very articulate and he says no one believes him. It hurts everytime. He has....

    Discomfort Ejaculating/Tiny yellow gelatinous granules in semen

    Starting about 4 months ago I noticed a slight amount of discomfort ejaculating. It's not painful, it feels like a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen and an almost un-noticeable burning sensation in my urethra. So, i decided to masterbate and inspect my semen. The semen was a normal white/clear color and in some parts had small gelatinous clumps. And about 1 out of every 4 ejaculations i noticed between 1-3 tiny yellow/gold gelatinous granules. Using a cotton swab i singled the granules out....

    Small black spot on scrotum

    Hi, I am 19 years and earlier today I noticed a spot on my scrotum, I have never got one there before so it would of be concerning anyway, but it is a dark colour, almost black, at the very top of the spot. It’s the only one and no other marks or darkness anywhere else on my scrotum, but I have no idea what it could be as I’ve never had a regular spot turn black before, thanks in advance

    Orgasm when peeing

    I'm a man, 29, and when I go take a leak it feels like I'm having an orgasm. I know this sounds fake but seriously its intense and even embarrassing if I'm in public and theres multiple stalls. Dont get me wrong I'm not complaining but if this is a symptom of a more serious issue I'd really like to know. Does anyone else have this issue? It's usually at the end of peeing and nothing comes out. But like I said its intense. Sometimes I get a tingling sensation down there that....

    At home PRP treatment

    So as a home hemo patient and diabetic since I was 9, I have no fear of needles. I self canulate for dialysis, do my own vacu-tube blood draws and centrifuge the samples. Through research I can see no problem with doing my own PRP treatments. Disregarding normal issues of infection since I am trained in prevention and am equipped with all necessary equipment, why shouldn't I self administer? I know that the ACD-A seems to be the best anti-coagulant for the platelets. so the yellow BD tubes would....
