Urology Practice isa great pleace to start to look into If you’re experiencing symptoms of male incontinence, a local urologist can help. A local urologist can ask about your symptoms and recommend further testing or male incontinence treatment. Urethral inserts like Contino® are temporarily inserted into the urethra (the tube which carries urine to the outside of the body) to prevent or reduce bladder leakage. Damage to the kidneys can lead to swelling in the hands and ankles, high blood pressure, and other symptoms.

Prostate Cancer NOW is part of the Now Health Network and its focus is on muscular and skeletal conditions. In summary, there are many different treatments for prostate cancer. Identifying the best treatment will depend on your specific situation and your preference after discussion with your doctor. It is not true Asian men have the lowest risk of developing prostate cancer. African men have the highest risk. Often seeing a local urologist in Toronto can help.
Medications like alpha blockers don't actually treat BPH, they treat the symptoms by relaxing the muscle around the urethra, so thereby reducing some of the resistance.
Sometimes we will add in a second line medication in order to try and shrink the prostate. These medications are called the five alpha reductase inhibitors. So we have Proscar or Avodart These are medications which work by lowering the conversion of testosterone within the prostate. Over a period of 6 to 12 months, this can shrink the prostate by around 20%.
