My father-in-law's age is 64 and he had malignant tumour in urinary bladder. Later it was operated 1 year ago. It was in first stage. But yesterday we did a USG. Report of the USG is "mild focal mucosal thickening in urinary bladder. My question is does his cancer in urinary bladder come back?

Urinary bladder cancer is known for recurrence. You need to get a cystoscopy done regularly to look for any recurrence. Mild thickening seen on ultrasound doesn't necessarily mean that the problem is recurrent but a cystoscopy is a. Must.

Testicular Implants

Testicular Implants

Often times, a man might need to have one or both of his testicles removed for variety of reasons (infection , cancer, trauma or undescended testis) or the testicles might be absent from birth itself.  The absence of one or both testis can alter the body image and can affect quality of like as well as self confidence. The implantation of a testicular prosthesis or implant can help restore the quality of life and confidence by restoring the normal shape of the scrotum.  

  • Testcular prosthesis implantation is however an optional procedure performed for cosmetic reasons only.  It doesnt provide any testicular functions.  
  • Implantation of a testicular prosthesis might also be associated with certain complications such as infection and reaction to the implant material.  
  • Considering everything, testicular prosthesis implantation is a very personal decision and choice.  An informed decision can be taken after discussing the pros and cons of the procedure with your surgeon.

I wanted to know about treatment options available for polycystic kidney disease. Is there any surgery option available to treat cyst which measures around 3.5 cm.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Urology
Urologist, Mohali
Polycystic kidney doesn't require treatment per se. Most important is to keep monitoring kidney function because Polycystic kidney can lead to kidney failure. For a cyst of 3.5 cm again usually no treatment is required unless it is causing pain/infection /bleeding or there is some abnormality detected on ct scan.

Colic Pain - Ways It Can Be Treated!

Colic Pain - Ways It Can Be Treated!

The word colic directly refers to the colon. Colic pain is a sharp abdominal pain followed by bouts of crying usually occurring in infants below the age of one year. The pain only last for a short period of time ranging from a few weeks to a couple of months. Very few number of babies will cry endlessly indicating towards an underlying condition.

  • It is mainly characterized by sharp crying for supposedly no apparent reason, irregular sleep patterns, and restlessness or owing to deviation from normal postures. The apparent causes of colic pain include indigestion and negative reaction of the sensitive gut to the breast or formula milk, although no concrete cause of the state has been discovered.
  • Doctors often suggest home remedies such as swaddling, pacifiers, holding and comforting the baby and more frequent feedings to reduce the condition. Since it is so common among infants and relatively less harmful, no proper medication is usually given. Physicians suggest mothers to reduce the content of caffeine, alcohol or spice in their diet. Sometimes a warm bath, burping the baby or going on more frequent walks is useful. Background music draws the attention of the baby and hence drives their focus, away from the abdominal pains.
  • Colic pains are mainly treated by care rather than medicine. The baby is made to feel comfortable and the distress is reduced just by being around the infant. The primary care giver plays an important role in consoling the child and helping them get through the sudden pain which further plays a significant role in personality development. Colic pains are extremely short lived and probably one of the first few challenges of parenthood. They are primarily dealt with care and feeding except in extreme cases where medicinal cures such as lactase drops and simethicone drops are used to treat the abdominal pain.

Urinary Incontinence - Causes And Symptoms

Urinary Incontinence - Causes And Symptoms

Urinary incontinence is the inability to hold urine in the bladder because of loss of control of the bladder. The severity may range from temporary to chronic, depending on the cause of this disease. Urinary incontinence is more common in women than men and can be categorized into three types.

Types and symptoms of urinary incontinence

Stress incontinence: this incontinence may occur while participating in any physical activity such as a sudden cough, laugh, sneezing or exercising. The stress here refers to the sudden physical pressure that a person experiences, leading him/her to urinate involuntarily.

Urge incontinence: a sudden, involuntary contraction of the muscular wall of the bladder causes an urgency to urinate. This urgency can be formed by a sudden change in position or sex.

Overflow incontinence: this is more common in men with prostate gland problems, damaged bladder or blocked urethra. The person has an urge to urinate frequently but in small amounts.

Causes of urinary incontinence

There are a number of causes of urinary incontinence ranging from aging to cancer and physical damage to the neurological disorder.

1. Aging: with age, the bladder muscle weakens and the chances of incontinence increases.

Damage: since the pelvic muscles support the bladder any damage to it (surgery or any procedure to remove the uterus) can lead to urinary incontinence.

2. Enlarged prostate: enlargement of the prostate gland in older men may give rise to this condition.

Cancer: urinary incontinence may be associated with untreated prostate cancer, which is a side effect of treatments for it.

3. Menopause: estrogen is a hormone that keeps the lining of bladder and urethra healthy. After menopause the production of estrogen is decreased, increasing the chances of urinary incontinence.

4. Prevention: urinary incontinence is not preventable but some steps can be taken to reduce the risk of it. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking, practicing pelvic floor exercises, avoiding caffeine and acidic foods and eating more fiber to prevent constipation can help decreasing the risk of it.

Phimosis And Circumcision

MBBS, MS - General Surgery, M.Ch - Urology
Urologist, Mohali
Phimosis And Circumcision
  • Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin (aka prepuce) is tight and cannot be pulled back (retracted).  This resuts in poor hygiene and repeated infections of the forskin and the glans penis (a condition known as balanoposthitis).  Phimosis may also result in repeated trauma to the foreskin leading to cuts on the foreskin which sometimes may bleed.  Phimosis may also lead to pain during intercourse or difficulty in intercourse.  
  • The treatment for phimosis is circumcision which involves removal of the foreskin surgically.  The traditional technique involves cutting the foreskin with a surgical blade or scissors.  Recent techniques include laser circumcision and stitchless circumcision.  These recent techniques although more expensive than the traditional ones, provide better cosmesis and lesser pain.  
  • Other indications for circumcision include religious beliefs such as in Muslim population, recurrent infection and cosmesis.  
  • Apart from circumcision, another procedure known as a frenuloplasty / preputioplasty can also be used for selected cases of a tight foreskin.  These procedures have the advantage of preserving the foreskin which might be desirable for some individuals.

How To Treat Kidney Stones?

How To Treat Kidney Stones?

Treatment for Kidney stones varies depending on the size and type of the stone or the symptoms caused by it. In case of small stones, medication and simple changes in lifestyle can be enough to treat it, but surgeries and extensive treatments are required if symptoms are severe. Following are treatment options for kidney stones: 

  1. Small stones with minimal symptoms: Drinking water: Drinking around 3 litres of water a day will regulate your urinary system and can effectively eliminate small stones. Unless your doctor advices otherwise, drinking ample amount of fluids, usually water, is one of the commonest way to get rid of small kidney stones. 
  2. Pain relievers: There might be a considerable amount of pain and discomfort associated with passing the stone through urine. Your doctor may recommend pain killers like Ibuprofen, Naproxen sodium or acetaminophen. 
  3. Medical therapy: In order to eliminate the kidney stone, your doctor may administer medical therapy. Medication like alpha blocker helps in passing the kidney stone with least pain and more quickly. It relaxes the muscles in the ureter and makes the process relatively easy. 

Large stones with severe symptoms: 

  1. Extracorporeal Lithotripsy (ESWL): ESWL uses the help of sound waves to create vibrations which breaks the stones in smaller pieces. This procedure takes about an hour and can cause mild pain and discomfort. Your doctor may administer sedatives to reduce your sensitivity. More than one sessions of ESWL may be required depending upon the response. ESWL has side effects like blood in urine or bruising in the abdomen. 
  2. Surgical removal of kidney stones: Surgical removal of kidney stones is done with the help of a procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). It uses small telescopes and other instruments which are inserted in your back through a small incision. It is generally done in case of large stones and when ESWL fails. 
  3. Ureterorenoscopy (URS): A thin illuminated tube called ureteroscope is used to remove a stones in the ureter (a tube leading from kidney to the urinary bladder). The ureteroscope is equipped with a tiny camera which determines the location of the stone which is then broken into pieces with the help of other instruments. It may require general or regional anesthesia
  4. Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS): In this procedure a flexible endoscope is passed through the urethra into the ureter and the kidney. The stone is localised and is fragmented into small pieces with the help of laser. Fragments are then removed through the urethra. Usually a stent is placed after the surgery which is removed after a couple of weeks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

Blood In Urine - Causes Behind It!

Blood In Urine - Causes Behind It!

The condition in which blood appears in the urine is known as hematuria and causes a great distress to the sufferer. There are several causes why blood may appear in the urine. Whatever the cause may be, hematuria is mostly indicative of a serious medical condition.

Here are 5 reasons that cause blood to appear in the urine. 

  1. Infection: Infections like urethritis, pyelonephritis, cystitis or infection in any other body organ along the urinary tract is one of the most common causes of hematuria. Such infection may present with a variety of symptoms including blood in the urine. 
  2. Kidney stones and bladder stones: Another reason that can cause blood to appear in the urine is the presence of stones in the kidney or bladder. These stones are crystallized minerals that are formed in the kidney or the bladder but fail to pass through the urinary tract. They cause blockage and pain and result in hematuria. 
  3. An enlarged prostate: An enlarged prostate is a common cause of appearance of blood in the urine in men who are in their middle ages or older. Enlargement of the prostate gland causes the urethra to be compressed. This prevents the urinary bladder from getting fully emptied while urination. 
  4. Polycystic Kidney Disease: PKD is a kidney disorder in which cysts filled with fluid form in the kidneys and impair the kidneys, causing them to fail entirely at times. It is an inherited disease and can cause blood to appear in the urine. 
  5. Cancer: A cancerous kidney, bladder or prostate gland can also cause blood to appear in the urine. It is another major cause of hematuria but usually occurs in older patients. Most of the causes of hematuria can be easily treated. A thorough evaluation and proper treatment is required. Please don’t ignore blood in urine and consult an urologist as soon as possible for optimal care.
