On Sunday, July 19, 2020, Georgia Urology’s Dr. Ronald Anglade appeared as a guest on “The Weekly Check-Up” on News/Talk WSB Radio.
He was joined by Georgia Urology’s Dr. Joseph Song.
Dr. Anglade, Dr. Song, and host, Dr. Bruce Feinberg, discussed several testicular diseases and took questions from callers on the male testes.
Dr. Anglade is a native of New York. He received his undergraduate degree from Brown University, Providence, RI. He then returned to New York and received his medical degree from the State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn (Downstate Medical Center). He completed his residency in surgery and urology at the Boston University School of Medicine. His research interests include genetic causes of male infertility and penile implants, and a treatment option for erectile dysfunction.

During the show, Dr. Anglade, Dr. Song, and host, Dr. Bruce Feinberg, discussed the many testicular diseases that can take place during a man’s life–from birth to death. Although the topic is not often discussed, these three healthcare professionals took the time to highlight the importance of these conditions such as undescended testicles, testicular trauma, testicular torsion, infertility, and prostate cancer, as well as answered several questions from incoming callers on these topics.
Is it dangerous to have a cyst on the testicle? How do parents know if their child should require an evaluation following testicular trauma? What if my testicles are two different sizes? These are only a few of the questions that were answered during the show.
One of the key takeaways, whether you are experiencing any signs of testicular dysfunction or not, is the importance of regular clinical evaluations from a physician and also, and possibly most importantly, is a routine self-examination of your testicles a couple of times a month. This can often catch early signs of testicular disease.
Another rule of thumb, as outlined on the show, is if any pain of your testicle does not resolve within 30 minutes, please receive a clinical evaluation from a urologist. These could be signs of testicular dysfunction.
Testicular function is an extremely important topic for men’s health as so many areas of disease are related.
