MEN’S HEALTH


Maury Regional Medical Group Urology provides diagnosis and treatment for a range of health conditions, including men's urological issues. Our services include those listed here.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of available services, so please speak to your physician about your particular health concerns.

PROSTATE HEALTH

The prostate is a walnut-shaped gland in the male reproductive system. The prostate is located beneath the bladder and in front of the rectum. Men can experience a number of issues related to the prostate, including an enlarged prostate, inflammation in the prostate gland or prostate cancer.

Urologists can diagnose conditions related to prostate health through laboratory testing and physical exams. One of the most common signs of a prostate-related issue is difficulty urinating because the prostate presses against the urethra. Men who experience difficulty with urination should speak to their doctor about whether the prostate may be the cause.

It is estimated that one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. While prostate cancer is often a slow-growing cancer, it is important to have regular visits with your doctor to discuss your health. Some prostate cancers may be diagnosed and monitored for a period of time, while other cases may need to be treated through surgery. Often, an outpatient procedure can be performed as part of the management of prostate cancer.

If prostate cancer is diagnosed, you and your doctor will work together to determine the best course of treatment. If surgery to remove the prostate is indicated, our office will assist with a referral to a surgical specialist.

Prostate health procedures performed by Maury Regional Medical Group Urology include:

  • ADT therapy - Androgen deprivation therapy for management of hormones in patients with prostate cancer
  • Rezum – water therapy to treat enlarged prostate
