ConclusionsOverall, receipt of genitourinary prosthetic surgery for incontinence (1.5%) or erectile dysfunction (1.6%) was rare following radical prostatectomy. However, diabetic and older men demonstrated a greater likelihood of device placement.

ConclusionsGay and bisexual men treated for prostate cancer want a recovery curriculum that explicitly addresses the sexual challenges they face before, during and after treatment. While differences were identified across race and treatment type, they were relatively few and minor in magnitude, suggesting that a single online curriculum could advance rehabilitation for this population.

Conclusions Focal therapy for select patients with clinically significant nonmetastatic prostate cancer is effective in the medium term and has a low probability of side effects. Patient summary In this multicentre study of 625 patients undergoing focal therapy using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), failure-free survival, metastasis-free survival, cancer-specific survival, and overall survival were 88%, 98%, 100%, and 99%, respectively. Urinary incontinence (any pad use) was 2%. Focal HIFU therapy for patients with clinically significant prostate cancer that has not spread has a low probability of side effects and...

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide [1], and is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in men with 307,500 deaths in 2012 [1]. Approximately two-thirds of prostate cancer cases are disproportionately diagnosed in the developed world, largely due to prostate cancer screening practices [1]. However, some detected cancers are so low grade and slow growing that they are unlikely to affect the individual in his lifetime [2]. Treatment with radical prostatectomy, brachytherapy, or external bean radiotherapy carries risks including erectile dysfunction and urinary incontinence [2].

AbstractPurpose of ReviewNon-standard shift work schedules negatively impact the overall health of shift workers, and several studies have shown that shift work, specifically, is detrimental to urogenital health. The aims of this study are to systematically review the literature and determine the effect of shift work on the outcomes of hypogonadism, male infertility, lower urinary tract symptoms, and urogenital cancers.Recent FindingsRecent evidence supports associations between non-standard shift work and an increase in the frequency of prostate cancer and the severity of erectile dysfunction, lower urinary tract symptoms...
