ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Transgender individuals are becoming more prevalent in society. There are an estimated 700,000 -1,400,000 individuals in the US with gender dysphoria. Many of these patients will undergo medical and surgical transformation. Transgender patients at various stages of their transformation will present to urological clinics for care. It is important for urologists to understand the transition process, and the unique components of caring for transgender patients. Currently, there is inadequate understanding regarding the urologic care of transgender patients amongst general urologists. As the transgender population in the US is growing, the unfamiliarity and discomfort of general urologists with care for these patients may put these patients in danger of being underserved. Hormonally related conditions from the natal sex may still be present. For example, male to female patients are still at risk for prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia even after gender affirmation surgery. The types of gender affirmation surgery will be discussed, along with management of common complications (e.i. urethral stricture, fistula, neo-vaginal stenosis, incontinence) and appropriate follow up after surgery. While many transgender patients start care at a specialized center, over time as these patients merge into society, these patients will follow up locally with general urologists. Due to their history of transition, these patients have unique needs that may not be familiar to most urologists. Once the transformation is complete and all postoperative needs are met, these patients may require a regularly visit for hematuria workup, stone treatment or BPH consultation. This book is aimed at helping familiarize general urologists with this unique growing population of transgender patients. It will cover how to recognize and evaluate the most common GU complications of gender confirmation surgery, characterize the process of transition, evaluate malignancies after hormonal therapy, identify immediate and long term risks of gender confirmation surgery, and the decision making that goes into the appropriate diagnosis, follow up, or referral.

The Health Of Lesbian  Gay  Bisexual  And Transgender People
Author: Institute of Medicine
Publisher: National Academies Press
Release Date: 2011-06-24
Pages: 366
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

At a time when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals--often referred to under the umbrella acronym LGBT--are becoming more visible in society and more socially acknowledged, clinicians and researchers are faced with incomplete information about their health status. While LGBT populations often are combined as a single entity for research and advocacy purposes, each is a distinct population group with its own specific health needs. Furthermore, the experiences of LGBT individuals are not uniform and are shaped by factors of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geographical location, and age, any of which can have an effect on health-related concerns and needs. The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People assesses the state of science on the health status of LGBT populations, identifies research gaps and opportunities, and outlines a research agenda for the National Institute of Health. The report examines the health status of these populations in three life stages: childhood and adolescence, early/middle adulthood, and later adulthood. At each life stage, the committee studied mental health, physical health, risks and protective factors, health services, and contextual influences. To advance understanding of the health needs of all LGBT individuals, the report finds that researchers need more data about the demographics of these populations, improved methods for collecting and analyzing data, and an increased participation of sexual and gender minorities in research. The Health of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People is a valuable resource for policymakers, federal agencies including the National Institute of Health (NIH), LGBT advocacy groups, clinicians, and service providers.
