Urinary Incontinence: Frequently Asked Questions
Incontinence is certainly a common problem that we see in urology. Dr. Karl Kreder answers patients' questions regarding incontinence issues.
Kidney Stones
Kidney stones may be one of the most painful urologic conditions. Kidney stones seldom require open surgery and many patients can pass stones naturally. If the stones cannot be passed and medical attention is required, less invasive procedures often can be used.
Testicular Pain
Pain in one or both testicles can be worrisome, but only a few conditions require immediate medical attention.
Varicoceles
Varicoceles are a dilation of the veins that drain the testis. These are found in the spermatic cord and are called the pampiniform plexus. Varicoceles typically develop after puberty, although many are not detected until evaluation for fertility problems is undertaken.
