6 Did you identify all these areas? Frequency, urgency, nocturiaPolyuriaOliguria (< 400mls/24yrs)DysuriaHesitancy and strainingUrine colorPast genitourinary historyPenisPain, lesion, discharge, bleeding
7 Sexual Activity and contraceptive use STD contact ScrotumTSESexual Activity and contraceptive useSTD contact
8 After the client history in nonurgent cases …..What next? Remember you are doing Physical Assessment
9 Male Genitalia Inspect and Palpate Wash Hands before and after examinationWear GlovesDischargeIf a scrotal mass is suspected, what will you check for ?PainLocationReduceAuscultate
10 Transillumination - performed if scrotol swelling or mass. Darken room Transillumination - performed if scrotol swelling or mass. Darken room. Shine flashlight from behind the sac.Normal contents do not transilluminateSerous fld does = red glow (hydrccele, spermatocele)Solid tissue and bld do not transilluminate
11 Normal Scrotal Findings Contents should slide easilyTestes feel oval, firm, rubbery, smooth, = bilaterallyFreely movable,Slightly tender to moderate pressureLeft testicle lower than right
12 Inguinal Region Bear down (should be no change) Cough no longer accepted practice . Why?need steady , increased intra abdominal pressure.Likely to cough in your face
14 TSE Should be practiced from 13yrs on every month. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men age 15 to 35.Testicular tumor has no early symptomsEarly detection by palpation and Rx = almost 100% cureProthesis
15 PQRST (U) P: provocative or palliative Q: Quality or Quantity R: Region or RadiationS: Severity Scale.T: Timing

30 Prostatitis Symptoms – infection, urinary, perineal and rectal pain Tender enlargement with acute inflammationSwollen, asymmetric gland, tender to palpationChronic inflammation = tender enlargement, boggy feel or firm isolated areas or normal feel.
31 CarcinomaSymptoms = urinary, continuous pain lower back, pelvis, thighsOften starts as a single hard nodule posterior surface ; asymmetrical feel and change in consistency. Progression = multiple hard nodules until gland is stone hard and fixed
