Urology deals with the treatment and diagnosis of diseases of the urinary and genital tracts. According to Jan Schraml, in addition to inflammation and infections, the Czech Republic is also troubled by the occurrence of tumors and kidney stones, and the number of patients with prostate cancer is also increasing.

“Thanks to today’s detection options and frequent ultrasounds, we can diagnose the disease even in younger individuals when they are still at the beginning of the disease, which is great,” said the head at the beginning of the podcast, adding that doctors can completely cure most patients with prostate cancer today.

While women are used to going to the gynecologist for regular check-ups since puberty, men are often shy and, in case of problems, prefer home treatment, according to Schraml. “The fear of visiting a urologist or venereologist often leads to the fact that they take a self-bath of their penis in their vagina,” describes one of the not infrequent cases of Schraml, who, among other things, was also at the birth of the Czech Center for Robotic Surgery.

Thanks to developments in medicine and the use of knowledge from robotics, today prostate cancer can be cured with minimal consequences. “When patients are successfully cured, they pass on information to each other and thus lose their shyness about medical procedures,” explains the urologist, adding that this allows them to save more patients.

What is a podcast and why don’t you call it Czech?

Podcasts are recordings of the spoken word placed on the Internet where anyone can play them. The plus of podcasts compared to radio broadcasts is the possibility to listen to your favorite program anytime and anywhere. If you’re on your way to work, on vacation, or don’t want to spend the evening staring at TV, you only need to have your mobile phone with you, ideally headphones. The English word podcast comes from the combination of the words iPod and broadcast, there is no established equivalent in Czech yet.

Novinky has also been publishing podcasts since last year.
