    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Erectile dysfunction: It is the inability to keep a hard and erect penis suitable for sexual intercourse. It could be a sign of physical or psychological conditions such as fear of sexual failure, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or stress. Certain health-related factors such as smoking, drinking, being overweight, being physically inactive, and high blood pressure also contribute to erectile dysfunction. Symptoms of erectile dysfunction include difficulty in getting an erection, difficulty in maintaining the erection during intercourse and decreased sexual desire.

    Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH): Benign prostatic hyperplasia, also called prostate enlargement, is the non-cancerous growth of the prostate gland due to the multiplication of cells. This leads to swelling and squeezing of the urethra and limits the urine flow. It is an age-associated prostate gland enlargement which can cause problems with urination. BPH symptoms include loss of bladder control, frequent urination, inability to urinate, incomplete bladder emptying, weak urinary stream, dribbling at the end of the urinary stream, sudden urge to urinate, and painful urination.

    Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH): High blood pressure affects the arteries in the lungs and heart, leading to pulmonary arterial hypertension. It occurs due to narrowed or blocked blood vessels which increases the workload on the heart. Symptoms include chest pain, dizziness, fatigue, and swelling in the legs and ankles.
