Georgia Urology’s Dr. Froylan Gonzalez appeared on The Weekly Check-Up on News/Talk WSB Radio on Sunday, May, 12th.
Throughout his segment, Dr. Gonzalez spoke on his expertise in a wide range of men’s health conditions that include erectile dysfunction, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer. Dr. Gonzalez also took questions from callers about prostatic fluid issues, radiation cystitis, and enlarged prostates.
Additionally, Dr. Gonzalez explained the link between bladder cancer and smoking/vaping tobacco products from the harmful chemicals that accumulate in the urine.
Dr. Gonzalez states, “There is a huge connection between smoking and bladder cancer. All of those chemicals get into the bloodstream, the kidneys then filter out those chemicals that are carcinogens, and they get concentrated in the urine and sit in the bladder for hours on end. We don’t drink enough fluid or use the restroom often enough and the chemicals in the urine cause disease of the bladder.”
