The disease of male genital organs may include several common benign male genital organs conditions (phimosis, hydrocele, varicocele, testicular hypermobility, both epididymal and spermatic cord cysts).
It may also include testicular and penile cancer.
Common benign male genital organs conditions:
is a condition in which the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back over the head of the penis (glans). Phimosis is normal in babies and toddlers but in older children or adults may require a surgical treatment called circumcision
is a type of painless swelling in the scrotum that occurs when fluid fills the sac that contains the testicles. Hydrocele repair may be necessary when its presence causes discomfort
is an enlargement of the veins in the scrotum. It usually involves the left testicle. It is usually a painless condition. Treatment of varicocele is recommended when fertility tests show low sperm cells production
Testicular hypermobility (sub and acute torsion):
it occurs when testicles move between the scrotum and the abdominal cavity causing chronic testicular pain and repeated funicular sub torsion. Retractile testicles should be fixed to avoid complete funicular torsion
Epididymal (spermatocele) and spermatic cord cysts:
this fluid-filled sacs are often painless and should be removed in case they grow quickly becoming symptomatic
Cancer of the male genital organs:
Testicular cancer is a malignant tumour of young and middle-aged men with a peak of diagnosis between 20 and 40-year-old men.
Symptoms are often missing in the early stages. Any lump, enlargement, hardness, pain or tenderness in the testicles should be examined by a urologist as soon as possible.
Penile cancer is rare cancer affecting the surface of the penis in male patients over the age of 50.
Any patient with a persistent lesion/mark on his glans or penile shaft should see a urologist as soon as possible.
Treating all urological conditions by using evidence-based knowledge and latest technologies.
