spermo
spermato
sperm
vaso
vessel
scrotum
a bag; skin-covered pouch in the groin that is divided into two sacs,each containing a testis and an epididymis
testis
one of the two male reproductive glands located in the scrotum, that produces sperm and the male hormone testosterone
sperm
spermatozoon
male gamete or sex cell produced in the testes that unites with the ovum in the female to produce offspring
epididymis
coiled duct on top and at the side of the testis that stores sperm before emission
penis
erectile tissue covered with skin that contains the urethra for urination and ducts for the secretion of seminal fluid
glans penis
bulging structure at the distal end of the penis
prepuce
foreskin; loose casing covering the glans penis removed by circumcision
vas deferns
duct that carries sperm from the epididymis to the ejaculatory duct
seminal vesicle
one of two sac like structures lying behind the bladder and connected to the vas deferns on each side - secretes an alkaline substance into the semen to enable the sperm to live longer
semen
mixture of the secretions of the testes, seminal vesicles, prostate, and bulbourethral glands discharged from the male urethra during orgasm
ejaculatory duct
duct formed by the union of the vas deferns with the duct of the seminal vesicle it's fluid is carried into the urethra
prostrate gland
trilobular gland that encircles the urethra just below the bladder - secretes an alkaline fluid into the semen
bulbourethral glands
pair of glands below the prostate with ducts opening into the urethra adds a viscid gluid to the semen
perineum
external region between the scrotum and anus in a male and between the vulva and anus in a female
spermatic cord
cord containing the vas deferns, arteries, veins, lymph vessels and nerves that extends from the internal inguinal ring through the inguinal canal to each testicle
aspermia
inability to secrete or ejaculate sperm
azoospermia
semen without living spermatozoa sign of infertility in the male
oligospermia
scanty production and expulsion of sperm
mucopurulent discharge
drainage of mucus and pus
anorchism
absence of one or both testes
balanitis
inflammation of glans penis
cryptorchism
undescended testicle; failure of a testis to descend into the scrotal sac during fetal development it most often remains lodged in the abdomen or inguinal canal, requiring surgical repair
epididymitis
inflammation of the epididymis
hydrocele
hernia of fluid in the testis or tubes leading from the testis
hypospadias
congeital openng of the male urethra on the undersurface of the penis
erectile dysfunction
failure to initiate or maintain an erection until ejaculation because of physical or psychological dyfunction; formerly termed impotence
Peyronie disease
disorder characterized by a buildup of hardened fibrous tissue in the corpus cavernosum causing pain and a defective curvature of the penis especially during erection
phimosis
narrowed condition of the prepuce resulting in its inability to be drawn over the glans penis, often leading to infection - commonly requires circumcision
benign prostatic hyperplasia/hypertrophy
enlargement of the prostate gland frequently seen in older ment causing urinart obstruction
prostate cancer
malignancy of the prostate gland
prostatitis
inflammation of the prostate
spermatocele
painless, benign cystic mass containing sperm lying above and posterior to the testicle, but separate from it
testicular cancer
malignant tumor in one or both testicles commonly developing from the germ cells that produce sperm classified in two groups according to growth potential
seminoma
most common type of testicular tumor, composed of immature germ cells highly treatable with early detection
nonseminomas
testicular tumors arising from more mature germ cells that have a tendency to be more aggressive than seminomas; often develop earlier in life
varicocele
enlarged, swollen, herniated beins near the testis
chalmydia
most common sexually transmitted bacterial infection in North America often occurs with no symptoms and is treatable only after it has spread
gonorrhea
contagious inflammation of the genital mucous membranes caused by invasion of the gonococcus
syphilis
infectious disease caused by a spirochete transmitted by direct intimate contact that may involve any organ or tissue over time; usually manifested first on the skin with the appearance of small painless red papules that erode and form bloodless ulcers called chancres
hepatitis B
virus that causes inflammation of the liver as a result of transmission through any body fluid including vaginal secretions, semen and blood
herpes simplex virus type 2
virus that causes ulcer-like lesions of the genital and anorectal skin and mucosa; after initial infection the virus lies dormat in the nerve cell root and may recur at times or stress
urethrogram
xray of the urethra prostate
circumcision
removal of the foreskin exposing the glans penis
epididymectomy
removal of an epididymis
orchiectomy
orchidectomy
removal of a testicle
orchiopalsty
repair of a testicle
orchiopexy
fixation of an undescended testis in the scrotum
prostatectomy
excision of the prostate gland
transurethral resection of the prostate
removal of prostatic gland tissue through the urethra using a resectoscope, a specialized urological endoscope - common treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia
vasectomy
removal of a segment of the vas deferens to produce sterilit in the male
vasovasostomy
restoration of the function of the vas deferns to regain fertility after vasectomy
