Anatomy Of The Penis And Testicles:
The penis and testicles are two parts of the male reproductive system. The penis consists of three tubes that carry urine, sperm, and semen. When erect, it is about 7-8 inches long, but when flaccid it can range from 1 to 5 inches. On an average day, a man will produce between one to two milliliters of semen, which is made up of cells from several glands and then stored in the seminal vesicle until ejaculation occurs. The testicles are oval-shaped organs that lie on either side of a man’s groin area.

Facts About Bladder Cancer, Renal Cancer & Stone Disease:
Bladder cancer is a type of urothelial cell cancer that can develop anywhere along the lining of the bladder. It often starts as irritation and may be signaled by blood, protein, or mucus in your urine. This type of cancer typically grows slowly and symptoms may not appear for months or years after it starts.
Renal Cancer RCC, or renal cell carcinoma, is an aggressive type of kidney cancer that usually starts near the outer surface of one or both kidneys. It’s rare – but when detected early it can be cured with surgery alone. Symptoms include flank pain (lower back), hematuria (bloody urine), fatigue, swelling, weight loss, and fever. Some people have no symptoms at all.
Facts About Transplant Surgery:
Transplant surgery is a branch of transplant medicine that deals with transplants of organs and tissues, including transplanted corneas, bones, hearts, livers, lungs, kidneys, and pancreas. Transplant surgeons are often involved in the procurement of these organs. Transplants are usually performed when there is no other treatment available to provide a solution to a life-threatening condition. One example would be a situation where an individual has kidney failure but they do not have any family members who can donate their healthy kidney to them. In this case, he or she might get two new kidneys from two different people through two separate transplant surgeries.
