Get Screened in 2019

By: Arkansas Urology

 

About one in six men in the United States will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Screening for prostate cancer is an important part of taking care of your health in 2019. This is definitely not something that is only for men who are at higher risk.

Starting at age 45, men should have a baseline prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. This will measure the level of a protein produced by the prostate that circulates in a man’s blood. If your PSA level is higher, there is a reason for concern and more testing. In some cases, this can be a sign of BPH, but in other cases, this can mean there is prostate cancer. If the PSA level is normal, you should see your doctor for another PSA test at age 50.

For men who are 50 and older, you should have an annual PSA test. Screenings are so important because there are not always signs of prostate cancer. A screening is the best way to detect prostate cancer early. Thankfully, most cases of prostate cancer are caught before they spread to other areas of the body. You are definitely on the right track to want to get screened and take better care of your health. You’ll want to make an appointment with a urologist for a screening if you have never had one before.

Are UTIs Related to Bladder Cancer?

By: Arkansas Urology

Fact or Fiction: There are no warning signs of bladder cancer other than a UTI.

A urinary tract infection (UTI) can definitely be a symptom. Of course, not everyone who has a UTI will be diagnosed with bladder cancer, but this is why it’s so important to seek treatment if you have a UTI because it can be a sign of something more.

For men, bladder cancer is the fourth most common form of cancer.However, it is less common in women. Nearly 90 percent of the people diagnosed with bladder cancer are over the age of 55. This type of cancer can spread to the kidneys, lungs, bones and brain if left untreated.

The bladder is a balloon-shaped organ that stores urine the kidneys have produced.Most bladder cancers originate in the bladder lining, and one of the most common symptoms is blood in the urine.It can appear as spotting on your toilet tissue or as bright red clots in the urine.

UTIs that keep reoccurring, as mentioned previously, could be a symptom of bladder cancer.Women are more prone than men to have UTIs. However, anyone making multiple trips to the doctor for treatment should recognize it as a potential sign of bladder cancer.

Painful urination or blood in the urine are common symptoms because the cancer tumors irritate the nerves in the bladder lining.It is not normal to experience discomfort when voiding or to have pain in the pelvic area that gets worse with time.

Symptoms of bladder cancer are similar to those of many other urinary problems, like urinary tract infections or kidney stones. So no, UTIs are not the only symptom of bladder cancer which is why it is important to share your concerns with a urologist or other health care provider for an accurate diagnosis.

Best Pelvic Floor Exercise

By: Arkansas Urology

 

Bladder leakage is not a problem you have to live with. In fact, did you know simple exercises can help with your bladder issues!

The pelvic floor acts like a hammock that supports the bladder, bowel and uterus. After childbirth or as you get older, the pelvic floor can weaken, and you may experience bladder leakage or incontinence. When it comes to your workout routine, exercises that strengthen your pelvic muscles probably aren’t on your list, but they should be! 

When the muscles located in pelvic floor contract, the organs are lifted and the opening to the urethra is tightened. (The urethra is the small tube that allows urine to exit your body.) As you train the muscles, the weakened pelvic floor becomes stronger. The result is reduced risk of incontinence, and it can also boost your core strength.

You’ve likely heard of ‘Kegels,’ which are the exercises that work by isolating and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. You might benefit from Kegel exercises if you leak a few drops of urine when you sneeze or cough (stress incontinence) or have a strong, sudden urge to urinate with bladder leakage (urinary incontinence).

To get started you need to identify the pelvic floor muscles. The next time you go to pee, stop your urination in midstream. If you succeed, you’ve found the right muscles. Start by tightening your pelvic floor and hold the contraction for ten seconds and then relax for 10 seconds. You should repeat for 10 repetitions at least three times a day and be careful not to flex the abdomen. You can do these exercises discreetly anytime and anywhere. If you’re having trouble doing the exercises, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help. Our urologists at Arkansas Urology can help you learn to isolate and exercise the correct muscles.
