When it comes to your health, some topics are more comfortable to talk
about than others — one of those not-so-easy topics to talk about?
Prostate health. From constant trips to the bathroom to erectile dysfunction,
these uncomfortable issues can happen at any age. Not only can it put
an emotional toll on you, but it can also affect your quality of life.
With Prostate Cancer Awareness Month ahead in September, here’s how
to make your prostate health a priority.
Knowledge Beyond the Treatment
Whether you need diagnostic, pharmaceutical, or surgical help, urologist
Dr. Mahmoud Chehab and his team offer a caring and compassionate approach
to all treatments that focus on improving your quality of life. Being
open about all your symptoms can help to identify issues before they progress
and prevent further complications. Dr. Chehab also understands that “some
patients may need coaching to understand their return to “regular
life” may include some not so desired but temporary side effects.”
Finding The Best Treatment For You
As a patient, you have treatment choices, and there is no reason to suffer
from a potentially treatable urological problem. “If you’ve
been on medication for enlarged prostate for years, for example, chances
are it’s not going to work as effectively. Let’s look at what
else is available to improve your quality of life,” says Chebab.
