“I’d better refer you to a urologist.”
“Let’s try a sample and see how you do.”

Serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA).
Penile duplex ultrasonography.
Nocturnal penile tumescence and rigidity (NPTR) test.
Question 8 A 72-year-old unmarried, sexually active man, presents to the clinic with complaints of hesitancy, urgency, and occasional uncontrolled dribbling. Although the nurse practitioner suspects benign prostatic hyperplasia, what else should the differential diagnosis include?
Question 9 A 72-year-old male presents to the office for follow-up of several episodes of orthostatic hypotension. After obtaining a review of systems and a digital rectal examination, it also appears that he has benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) with lower urinary tract symptoms. The nurse practitioner reviews his recent ultrasound evaluation, which reports a prostate volume of over 40 mL, and the results of the American Urological Association (AUA) symptom index for BPH, which shows his score to be 12. Based on the preceding information and the patient’s desire for noninvasive medical therapy, what management should he be offered?
Question 10 A 62-year-old male has a low International Prostate Symptom Score for lower urinary tract symptoms associated with his benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The nurse practitioner should recommend:
Immediate referral to urology.
No treatment at this time.

In teaching a patient how to do a testicular self-examination, which of the following should the clinician advise?
“Make sure your hands are dry to create friction.”
“Examine your testicles when you are cold because this makes them more sensitive.”
“If you feel firmness above and behind the testicle, make an appointment.”
“Make an appointment if you note any hard lumps directly on the testicle, regardless of whether they are tender.”
Question 13 A 32-year-old male presents with complaints of a scrotal mass; however, the scrotum is so edematous that it is difficult to assess. How would the nurse practitioner (NP) best determine whether the condition is a hernia or a hydrocele?
Bowel sounds may be heard over a hernia.
With a hydrocele, a bulge appears on straining.
The NP can transilluminate a hernia.
The NP can always return a hernia’s contents to the abdominal cavity.
