Hello Doctor. I am 30 years old and have been suffering from erectile dysfunction since 1 month ago. I smoke and drink alcohol. Does it affect my sexual health?
Doc, I am 27 years old and don’t have any disease history. But when I urinate, I feel pain. I decided to see a doctor. The USG shows I have a tumor in my bladder. Is this dangerous? Is there any chance this tumor might turn into cancer?
Doctor, my husband is 32 years old. There has been blood in his urine since 2 weeks ago. It stopped for 3 days and then recurred (red blood). He also feels pain in the middle of his back. Is this dangerous?
Hello Doctor, I want to ask - these 2 days I spot pus in my urine and when urinating, it is painful and hot. What disease is this, Doc? Is this dangerous?
Doctor, I am a 28 year old male and haven’t been circumcised. Now I feel pain when I urinate and this happens many times a month. I read an article that said it is common for people who are not circumcised. Do I need to get circumcised, Doc?
Doctor, I have a habit of holding in my urine when I am working. Now I have a dysuria problem that occurs 2-3 times a week. What should I do to treat this? Is this due to me holding in my urination too often?
Doctor, is it true that erectile dysfunction can be treated by consuming healthy food and through exercising?
Doctor, my husband complains that he feels pain when urinating and he feels as though there is still urine left in his bladder after completing the stream. His doctor said it is due to a reduced bladder and bacteria. The doctor gave him antibiotics but there is no improvement. Please give us your advice, Doc?
Doctor, I have a problem with premature ejaculation. This makes me unconfident when I have sex. My wife suggested I do kegel exercises. Will that work, Doc? Or is there something I should do?
Doctor, there is a lump in my testicle. It doesn’t hurt. But if I press it, it is painful. What problem is this doc? Is it okay to leave it? Thank you
