Although most cancers are diagnosed via a biopsy, a prostate cancer diagnosis relies on some screening tests early in the process before a final diagnosis is made. So exactly what are the steps and how is prostate cancer diagnosed?
Dr. Steven Gange was recently featured in an article about the new UroLift® Advanced Tissue Control (ATC)™ System.
The way our culture looks at aging has changed in the last several decades. We no longer think of all seniors as sitting in a rocking chair. Now we see our older relatives traveling and enjoying all that life has to offer. Likewise, bladder leakage, although common, is not a normal part of aging. Let’s learn some facts.
You have probably seen any number of ads on the television and online about low T. They seem to indicate that this is a growing national problem and all men should begin taking medication to correct their testosterone deficiency and become more “manly men.” It might be time to slow down this growing snowball down the mountain, and look carefully to evaluate when do men need testosterone treatment?
When diagnosed early, most cancers can be treated successfully. Having the prostate screening test for cancer, or PSA test, is no different. Doctors continually emphasize the importance of prostate cancer screenings, and you can determine their importance especially when you are aware of your personal risk factors.
Although women can experience urinary incontinence (UI) during their life, the frequency of UI tends to occur more often when you get older. This loss of bladder control stems from hormonal changes that affect muscle strength in your pelvic area. Women who are pregnant, giving birth, or going through menopause are all likely to have urinary incontinence. So, does menopause cause urinary incontinence? It is a contributing factor, but there is more to it.
Let’s face it. As a man, there are probably things you just do NOT want to talk about. Incontinence is probably one of those topics, but the truth is that if you are suffering with incontinence, you must deal with it. So continue reading and consider it the guy’s guide to male incontinence. Then your next step will be to talk to Dr. Steven Gange about it!

Most common side effects are temporary and can include discomfort when urinating, urgency, inability to control the urge, pelvic pain, and some blood in the urine. Rare side effects, including bleeding and infection, may lead to a serious outcome and may require intervention.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH is what is known as an enlarged prostate. It may sound scary, but should you be concerned about an enlarged prostate? This depends on your age, whether you are symptomatic, and how severe those symptoms are. Here’s a bit more detail!
Dr. Gange, urologist in Salt Lake City, UT., thanks NeoTract for making it possible to be able to offer a service which transforms the lives of BPH patients. He expects there will be a great demand in The Urolift System after these times are over.
