Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. [@chutkaMD] Guest: Mitchell R. Humphreys, M.D. Benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH is quite common in middle-age and older men. It's estimated that up to 70% of men over age 60 have symptoms from BPH. While BPH is not a life-threatening condition, it does produce symptoms which can negatively affect the lifestyle of our patients. Since most of the patients with BPH are managed by primary care providers, we should be comfortable with the variety of treatment options available. When should treatment be initiated? What's available pharmacologically? And when should a urologist be consulted to consider a surgical option? In this podcast, we'll discuss these questions and more with Mitchell R. Humphreys, M.D., from the Department of Urology at the Mayo Clinic.  This episode is brought to you by: Astellas Oncology | https://astellasoncology.com/ Connect with the Mayo Clinic's School of Continuous Professional Development online at https://ce.mayo.edu/ or on Twitter @MayoMedEd.

Anything from a change in financial situation, the heartbreaking circumstance of child loss, and/or remarriage can prompt the desire to have another child after a vasectomy. The success of vasectomy reversals often depends on the age of the original vasectomy, and the chances of conception declines after 7-15 years. But don't worry--our team of urologic surgeons are specially trained in performing these delicate procedures.

Dr. Scott Tagawa and Dr. Oscar Brouwer come on the ASCO Guidelines podcast to discuss the new EAU-ASCO Collaborative Guidelines on Penile Cancer. These comprehensive guidelines cover pathological assessment of tumour specimens, diagnosis and staging, local treatment of penile carcinoma, radical inguinal lymph node dissection, prophylactic pelvic lymph node dissection, surgical management, neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, radiotherapy, systemic and palliative therapies for advanced penile cancer, follow-up, and quality of life. They highlight key recommendations, and describe the importance of a patient-focused and multidisciplinary approach to management of penile cancer. Find more information about the guidelines at www.asco.org/genitourinary-cancer-guidelines The full text of the guideline is available at https://uroweb.org/guidelines/penile-cancer    Conflict of interest disclosures: Guideline Working Group  Dr. Scott Tagawa  Dr. Oscar Brouwer TRANSCRIPT Brittany Harvey: Hello and welcome to the ASCO Guidelines Podcast, one of ASCO's podcasts delivering timely information to keep you up to date on the latest changes, challenges, and advances in oncology. You can find all the shows, including this one, at asco.org/podcasts.  My name is Brittany Harvey, and today I'm interviewing Dr. Oscar Brouwer from the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam, and Dr. Scott Tagawa from Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, co-chairs on the ‘ASCO-EAU Collaborative Guidelines on Penile Cancer'.  Thank you for being here, Dr. Brouwer and Dr. Tagawa. Dr. Scott Tagawa: Thanks very much. Dr. Oscar Brouwer: Yeah, thanks for having us. Brittany Harvey: Before we discuss this guideline, I'd just like to note that the guideline was led by the European Association of Urology, and the conflict of interest disclosures of the Guideline Working Group are publicly accessible through the European Association of Urology website linked in the show notes. Additionally, Dr. Brouwer's and Dr. Tagawa's individual disclosures are provided in the show notes of this episode.  So, to jump into the content of this guideline, first, Dr. Tagawa, could you give us a general overview of the purpose and the scope of this collaborative EAU-ASCO Guideline? Dr. Scott Tagawa: So, I think the key word there is collaborative. This was truly a collaborative effort, and I say that in a number of ways. So, the two key organizations, the EAU and ASCO, came together with a Memorandum of Understanding and got together from the very beginning in terms of developing the scope and then throughout the methodology for the guidelines. And then, on a practical basis, I'd say even more importantly, a collaboration between multiple physicians of different disciplines from across the world. Whether we're talking about surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, we had panel members from all over the world as well as patient representatives from all over the world. And patient representatives really played a key role in the development of this guideline.  By way of background, penile cancer in most places is considered a rare disease. For example, in the United States, we expect around 2000 cases per year. In the genitourinary world, the next rare cancer is going to be testis cancer, which is going to be four or five times higher than that per year and nowhere near prostate cancer, for instance. So, just kind of put that into perspective. But, importantly, a disease that is a worldwide issue in a number of different ways. That includes the kind of general stigma of being diagnosed with that, the physical and emotional consequences of the diagnosis, as well as treatment. And then, because in part of its rarity, the lack of prospective randomized trials to really guide clinicians and that, I would say, that total package underscores the importance of coming together with a guideline. Brittany Harvey: Great. Thank you for providing that background and perspective.  So then, next, Dr. Brouwer, I'd like to review the key recommendations of this comprehensive guideline. Starting with what are the key recommendations regarding diagnosis and staging of penile cancer? Dr. Oscar Brouwer: First of all, I guess just to underline what my colleague, Dr. Tagawa, just said, it's a worldwide guideline, international, multi-continental. I think that's quite a special thing. But it also poses a few challenges, of course, because cultural differences and treatments may differ, opinions as well, distances that patients have to travel, lots of factors there, and also economy, et cetera, et cetera. So, to find a consensus there has been one of the challenges. I think we did a good job there to really make it accessible to all patients and physicians, of course, in the world.  When talking about diagnosis, I think comparing our new guidelines to old guidelines really emphasizes the new 2022 WHO classification in which distinction between HPV-positive and HPV-negative disease is highlighted. We increasingly have some knowledge on the difference between the HPV-related and the non-HPV-related penile cancers. I'd say it's about 50-50, the distinction. So, 50% is HPV-related, and 50% not HPV-related. But what we know from other cancers, for instance, that HPV-positive disease is associated with better prognosis than HPV-negative. This distinction is not so clear in penile cancer yet. And one of the reasons is just the lack of data, a lack of perspective for large studies, so to say. So, what we're really highlighting and underlining in the new guideline is the importance of doing HPV testing in all patients that have penile cancer, and that tissue is taken from. We chose to go for the cheapest and easiest but reliable methods to do so. So, immunohistochemistry of p16, to be exact. This is one of the important, I think, recommendations, or maybe even more than a recommendation; obligations we set to all physicians treating penile cancer.  So, just in terms of diagnosis and in terms of staging, we all know that lymph node status is the most important factor determining survival. So, finding those lymph nodes, if they are involved with cancer, yes or no. So, if they are metastatic, yes or no, is of crucial importance. This has always been the case, but I think it cannot be emphasized enough. And in this new guideline, we again emphasize the importance of doing surgical lymph node staging in high-risk patients. And what's a little bit new is that we are more or less going to the direction of preferring central node biopsy as the best method to do so. You could also, of course, remove all the lymph nodes, what we call radical lymph node dissection. It's still possible inside our new recommendations, depending on availability of all the techniques or availability of expert centers in proximity. But I think we can all see that in terms of complication rates, central node biopsy is probably superior. So this is also one of the new things in terms of staging.  Brittany Harvey: Absolutely. Thank you for those highlights of diagnosis and staging in the guideline.  So, following those recommendations, Dr. Tagawa, and I know this is a large section, but what does the expert panel recommend for disease management of penile cancer? Dr. Scott Tagawa: A single-sentence summary would say a multi-disciplinary approach in an expert center when possible. Re-emphasizing one of the statements that Dr. Brouwer made about sentinel lymph nodes; it appears to be better, but clearly is not available everywhere. And if I just make this US-centric for a minute, just within this country, where there are centers that are able to do it and have that expertise, there are centers that are not so far away that may not be able to do that. So regional differences within a single country that's what happens. So, anyway, multi-disciplinary input, I think, is important for many diseases, including penile cancer. A little bit of a segue, but one part of this guideline of which most of us are proud is that, front and center really, the introductory paragraph of the guidelines, where it really states that we need to really have this disease and the management patient-focused and that includes addressing some of the emotional aspects of the disease. Those are included in the management. But to kind of go through very quickly on a very high level, in the early stages management is mostly in the hands of the urologist. But sometimes there's dermatologists and others, so when there is superficial disease, we talk about superficial therapy and I'm just going to leave it at that, many of them don't have level 1 evidence, but there is, for instance, topical chemotherapy that can be helpful.  And then, as the disease becomes more invasive, so does the treatment. So there's sections on organ or penile sparing that is a reasonable option that needs to be done in a good multi-disciplinary system. That is a good and sometimes a preferred option when there is adequate staging for earlier stage disease. And then the more invasive the disease becomes is when the management needs to become more multi-disciplinary both in terms of workup as well as treatment. Where there is a consideration for, in certain situations, particularly in very locally advanced where it becomes unresectable at least in some eyes, where we say, “Okay, we're actually going to recommend starting off with chemotherapy,” the intent is for surgery with an alternative of chemotherapy and radiation. And currently, there are no head-to-head trials, but those are both reasonable approaches for the most locally advanced disease setting.  Taking a step back, if someone starts off with a little bit less locally advanced, so we'd say the alias, gross resectable, we would at least discuss in a multi-disciplinary setting what are the risk benefits of then post-operative therapy, whether that is radiation or chemotherapy, or both. I think all patients at least deserve the opportunity to have that discussion, and then that would be on an individual basis whether we decide to do that or not. Coming from the medical oncology-centric viewpoint where we really deal with systemic therapy, we don't really have any randomized trials to say that one approach is preferred to another, so they're kind of generic. But it does look like platinum chemotherapy, taxane chemotherapy are the most active current drugs. So when we're looking at multi-agent therapy when the setting is a goal of cure, we're generally saying platinum plus taxane combinations without being specific about doublets or triplets. Triplets when they can handle them, but not everyone can handle them.  And then for metastatic disease whether it's current or at presentation metastatic disease, the old guidelines actually said ‘don't even bother', but now that we have some effective drugs, we would say that for palliative purposes to come in with systemic chemotherapy, the same drugs that we talked about before. And then, there may be additional therapeutic agents. So we're now in the genomic era where there has been at least an initial look at what are the genomics of HPV related, non-HPV related, and there may be some targets, we just are a little bit too early to say that there are absolutely some targets, but there definitely are recommendations for participating in clinical trials. There are some trials that are specific to penile cancer. There are other ones that are non-specific or basket trials. Let's say any disease that has EGFR positivity, a patient with penile cancer may be able to get into that clinical trial or maybe meet a therapy-based trial, so considerations for the trials, I think, are important.  Brittany Harvey: It sounds like multidisciplinary care is a key tenet of this guideline. You mentioned patient-focused care is also key in this guideline. So that leads nicely into my next question. But Dr. Brouwer, what are the key recommendations both for follow-up and quality of life?  Dr. Oscar Brouwer Yeah so we have, like Dr. Tagawa already said, we have quite an elaborate section, not only in the introduction of the guideline but also a separate chapter at the end, really, to acknowledge the psychosocial, sexual impact this disease can have on patients. And again, I think it's more or less a plea for a form of centralized care for such a rare disease. We have a set of recommendations that we give in terms of follow-up and quality of life, and mainly several points that should really be discussed with patients, and support should be offered. So things like psychological sexual help, but also lymphedema therapist, physiotherapy in terms of complication management. And this mainly goes for patients that undergo lymph node surgery or treatment. And in our experience, if you don't see the disease often enough, you don't have all these things in place in your hospital to offer dedicated people that can do this. So I think that's something to consider in the future for healthcare in general when treating rare diseases such as these. But, yeah, like Dr. Tagawa said, our patient representatives have had a big role in this, and we're happy with that. So I recommend everyone to read it. Brittany Harvey: Absolutely. You've both mentioned that this is a rare disease. So, in your view, Dr. Tagawa, what is the importance of this guideline, and how will it impact clinicians? Dr. Scott Tagawa: There are certain centers that have high volume and certain countries that will have a high volume. For instance, areas in Brazil have a high volume. Whether there's a high volume or a low volume, like an average center in the United States, there haven't been any recent guidelines out there from any organization. So, the EAU has had an old guideline that was really out of date - updating that, number one. And number two, having the backing of two major organizations in the EAU and ASCO, I think is quite important to get this out there on a true international basis. Because not just in this disease, but in most diseases, when there is standardization of care, there's overall better outcomes, whether it's at the center that sees a lot or the centers that rarely see any. I think this document provides guidance, and, actually, take a step back for those that are interested, on the EAU website will be the entire very comprehensive guideline. So, someone that wants to get a lot of details, it's there, very comprehensive and honestly long, but it's, I think, an excellent reference document. And then, published in European Urology will be the summary guideline that has all the key points of the guidelines and summary in the text that will refer to the overall guideline for someone that wants to get through it on a quicker basis. That will also be published on the ASCO website just to kind of get that out there. A little bit of the side in terms of answering your question is that this is a rare tumor. We want everyone to have access to the best care possible, and if nothing else, it provides guidance in a setting where most clinicians don't have a lot of expertise. Brittany Harvey: Definitely. And thank you for highlighting both the summary and full text of the comprehensive guideline. We'll provide those links in the show notes, too, for easy access for any listeners.  And then, finally, you've both mentioned the impact this has for patients. But Dr. Brouwer, in your view, how will these guideline recommendations affect patients with penile cancer?  Dr. Oscar Brouwer: Well, of course, it's our hope that it will be very beneficial for patients around the world. I think it cannot be emphasized enough that this initiative, in which ASCO, in this case United States group, has collaborated with the European one to make an international multi continental guideline, is quite rare, in urological cancers is the first one. I'm not even sure if there are many others like these. I do really believe it makes sense for rare diseases to not have several guidelines. It's confusing which guideline to choose, especially if there are contradictions. So I guess this initiative is the first step towards having more comprehensive, literal guidelines for such a rare disease. And I really do hope that it will help clinicians, especially when they don't have experience treating this disease, to really look at this guideline first. And in turn, of course, I hope that will benefit patients because they'll have, hopefully, access to better quality care that way. And especially, like we already touched upon, also the importance of early access to support and to palliative care throughout the whole disease process. I really hope that is something that will be offered to patients worldwide more frequently now because it is not only about treating the disease itself but also about the consequences, of course. And I really do think that people will benefit from that in terms of quality of life. Brittany Harvey: Absolutely. I want to thank you both so much for your work on this comprehensive EAU-ASCO Guideline and for talking with me today and sharing your insights, Dr. Brouwer and Dr. Tagawa. Dr. Scott Tagawa:  Thank you very much. It was a pleasure. Dr. Oscar Brouwer: You're welcome. I would just like to add also a short opportunity, maybe just to thank all the panel members because it has been a huge effort. Not only an update, it has been actually rewritten from the ground up. So a lot of panel members, not only from the United States and Europe but also Canada, South America, patient representatives, all the associates that have helped. So it has been a big effort, and I congratulate and thank everyone. And thank you, Brittany, for the interview. Brittany Harvey: Definitely, it was a large group and multidisciplinary effort.

He considers stone size, stone density, preexisting comorbidities, and patient preferences. He uses CT scans, retrograde pyelograms, and flexible ureteroscopy to study the anatomy of the patient. Next, he explains how he gets his own access through retrograde access while the patient is in the supine position. Then, he discusses the trademark patent he currently holds for a PCNL kit, which includes a puncture wire, sheath, and coaxial microintroducer. The kit allows urologists to put a retrograde puncture wire through a flexible ureteroscope. He notes that this kit decreases renal trauma and allows the papillary puncture to be aligned with the infundibulum. He also reflects on the challenges of developing his kit and finding industry partners to support development. Although he had to wait 7 years to commercialize his technology, he saw the prolonged time as a benefit because he was able to improve its design before commercial release. Finally, he explains his technique for using the PCNL kit and offers advice for different difficult scenarios during PCNL. He emphasizes that, in the end, skilled surgeons ensure the success of PCNLs, not just the equipment they use. --- RESOURCES ReviveRX https://reviverx.com/ --- The BackTable Urology Podcast is a resource for practicing urologists to learn tips, techniques, and practical advice from their peers in the field.

Listen to ASCO's Journal of Clinical Oncology essay, “Mrs. Hattie Jones” by Dr. Eric Klein, fellow at Stanford's Distinguished Careers Institute. The essay is followed by an interview with Klein and host Dr. Lidia Schapira. Klein shares the mystery of why Mrs. Hattie Jones might have died when she did. TRANSCRIPT Narrator: Mrs. Hattie Jones, by Eric Klein, MD (10.1200/JCO.22.02405) That Hattie Jones died was not unexpected, but why she died when she did has been a mystery for more than 40 years. It was late summer and she'd been hospitalized for several weeks when I met her, as it were. In the era before a palliative care subspecialty was established, patients with incurable cancer like Mrs Jones were admitted for inevitably long hospital stays characterized by slow declines in form and function, managed by trainees like me, the least experienced and least expert on the team. The chief resident on the service, burly and gruff, brought us into her private room early on the first day of my rotation on the colorectal surgery service. Mrs Jones appeared malnourished and frail, with one intravenous (IV) bottle hanging and concentrated urine collecting in a bag at the bedside. She did not, in fact could not, acknowledge our presence or answer our queries as to her well-being or needs because of an induced somnolence by the morphine running continuously in the IV. She breathed regularly but slowly and did not seem to be in distress. The goal in caring for her, we were told, was simply to keep her comfortable until she died. She was the first terminally ill patient I'd cared for, and her isolation and unresponsiveness filled me with sadness and unease. Alone on afternoon rounds later that day, I was surprised to find someone sitting beside her bed holding her hand. The visitor was a sturdy woman a few years younger than Mrs Jones, dressed neatly and respectfully as though she were in church. She looked at me and said, “I'm Hattie's sister, and I'm here to be with her when she dies.” Her demeanor conveyed a sense of duty both to her sister and herself, and her solemnity evoked a divine presence. I introduced myself and answered her many questions about her sister's condition.  “Was she in pain?” It did not seem so, I replied. “Would she ever wake up?” I explained we could wake her up by turning down the morphine but that she would likely be in pain if we did. She considered that silently for a few moments and said she did not want that, although she longed to hear her sister's voice again. “Was she getting enough nutrition?” The IV also contained sugar water with enough calories for her condition, I explained. She said she missed her sister's smile. “How long is she going to live?” I admitted that even experienced physicians could not predict that. She was silent after that and after a few minutes I excused myself to tend to other patients. The days turned into weeks, then months, as the daylight hours grew shorter and the weather cooler and the fall slowly turned into winter without much change in Mrs Jones' condition. I'd greet her on rounds each morning, never eliciting a response, briefly examine her, write new IV orders, and move onto the day's work—rounding on patients being prepped for or recovering from surgery, then outpatient clinic, the operating room, and new patient admissions. Each afternoon Mrs Jones' sister was there by her side for several hours, watching her intently, holding her hand, and sighing sadly. Each day she reminded the team “I just want to be with her,” she said, “so she will not be alone when she passes.” Days on call for me were generally stressful and lonely, testing my medical knowledge and incompletely developed sense of empathy. As interns and newlyweds, my wife and I had call schedules that did not match—she every third night and me every fourth, such that we only had one evening a week together that first year when neither of us was exhausted. I missed our days in medical school when we shared classes, had dinner together every night, and walked afterward to the local Baskin- Robbins; now we work in different institutions, with different hours, and rarely had enough energy in the evenings and on weekends to truly be present for the other. I drew the short straw on my team in late December and was on call on Christmas Day. Because the operating room and clinics were closed, I made rounds later than usual and Mrs Jones' sister was already at her bedside when I entered her room. She told me she came early because she was hosting her large family for an early afternoon Christmas dinner, a long family tradition. Over the months of Mrs Jones' hospitalization, we'd developed a sense of each other, she trusting an inexperienced, young, and tired doctor trying to keep her sister comfortable, me seeing a devout woman dedicated to her sister's soul. She asked, “Is it safe for me to leave Hattie alone for a few hours this afternoon so I can have Christmas dinner with my family?” and added that it would be the first without her sister's presence in many years. I replied assuredly that it was, that her sister's condition had been stable for many months and that I thought she was going to live for a least a few more weeks. She looked at her sister, then at me, gathered her coat and scarf, kissed Hattie goodbye, and headed home. The rest of the day was relatively quiet for a day on call but typical for a holiday. There were a few patient phone calls, one or two patients to be seen in the emergency room, and no emergency surgeries. The hospital provided a free meal of turkey and sides to all the staff that were on call, and those of us in the cafeteria shared a sense of holiday cheer, albeit muted by being away from our own families. Despite the happy spirit there, I was lonely, missing my wife, and sad to have to postpone my own Christmas Day birthday celebration. While thinking about that I got what I thought was a routine call from the colorectal surgery nursing unit—perhaps about a patient needing a medication reorder, or a need to restart an IV, or to talk with a family about a hospitalized relative. Instead, the nurse on the phone summoned me to the unit to pronounce Mrs Jones dead. I paused for a long moment before asking, dreading the response: Was Mrs Jones' sister back from Christmas dinner? “No”, came the answer. My tears flowed copiously and quickly; my heart hit the floor. I sobbed loudly for a few minutes, unable to explain to my colleagues what had transpired. The walk from the cafeteria to the nursing unit seemed much longer than usual. I examined Mrs Jones for the final time and confirmed her lack of heartbeat and breathing. I watched as the nursing staff disconnected the IV, a lifeline that was no longer needed. I sat at the nursing station and filled out the death certificate. Name: Hattie Jones. Age: 63. Date and Time of Death: 1:23 pm, December 25, 1981. Cause of death: Cardiopulmonary arrest secondary to metastatic colon cancer. I put down my pen and summoned the courage needed for my last task—telephoning Mrs Jones' sister to share the news. I do not recall what I said, but I have a vivid memory of the reaction—she was initially silent and then I heard her cry, others in the background joining in when she repeated the news; I remain unsure to this day which one of us was more despondent. Over the course of my career, I've pondered many times over the timing of Mrs Jones' death. Perhaps she wanted her sister to be surrounded by family when hearing the news so that the burden of her sister's grief would be lessened by sharing. Perhaps it was meant to serve as a poignant reminder about the need for and power of celebrating time with family. Perhaps it was for me to experience a sense of helplessness to deepen my empathy for those who were incurable. Perhaps it was all these reasons or perhaps none of them. No matter the reason, after a career caring for thousands of patients, seeing many suffer and die along the way, I have never experienced a sadder moment. Why Mrs Hattie Jones died when she did is an enduring mystery, but her memory, the profundity of the bond between these two sisters, and the empathy I learned from them have lived on and helped me navigate the emotional ups and downs intrinsic to the practice of oncology. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Hello and welcome to JCO's Cancer Stories: The Art of Oncology, which features essays and personal reflections from authors exploring their experience in the field of oncology. I am your host, Dr. Lidia Schapira, associate editor for Art of Oncology and a professor of medicine at Stanford University.  Today we are joined by Dr. Eric Klein, a fellow at Stanford's Distinguished Careers Institute and Emeritus Professor and Chair of the Glickman Urological and Kidney Institute at Cleveland Clinic. In this episode, we will be discussing his Art of Oncology article, ‘Mrs. Hattie Jones'.  Our guest's disclosures will be linked in the transcript.  Eric, welcome to our podcast and thank you for joining us. Dr. Eric Klein: Thanks for having me. It's great to be here. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Let me start by asking you a little bit about your process for writing narratives. When do you write, and what kind of scenario triggers your desire to write? Dr. Eric Klein: I haven't written anything creative like this since college, so I don't really have a process. But I can tell you the process I used for this particular piece. I had the real pleasure of being in John Evans' class. He's a faculty member at Stanford in the English department who taught memoir writing. And so the class was to teach us how to write memoirs, and it was filled with prompts, which was a wonderful way to respond, and it tapped into some creativity that I didn't know I had.  So the prompt for this particular piece was to write about a secret or a mystery. And I thought about it for a day or two, and I thought, I have lots of secrets in my life, but I don't really want to share them with anyone. And I struggled with it. So I was having dinner with one of my classmates, Thanya, and just discussing this because she had taken the class, and she said, "Well, why don't you make it a mystery?" And it clicked immediately, as I have written, is that this mystery about why Mrs. Jones died when she did has stuck with me for more than 40 years.  So that night, I was lying in bed trying to figure out how I was going to write this because I'm not a creative writer--tossing and turning. And about 1:30, I got out of bed, and I sat in our dark living room, and I tapped the story out on my iPhone, and I emailed it to myself, and I edited it the next day. And that was the process. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Your essay has this very factual title, including the Missus, ‘Mrs. Hattie Jones'. And then it starts with this statement, "She died.” We know this, but her death is not unexpected. But the timing was. And that mystery has stayed with you for 40 years. It's a very impactful opening. I thought that was very creative, actually, on your part. Beautifully done. Tell us a little bit about why you have pondered for 40 years about the timing of Mrs. Jones' death. Dr. Eric Klein: It was a very emotional event for me, in part because I was so young in my career. I had never taken care of terminally ill patients before. Nothing in medical school prepared me for that. There was no palliative medicine service at the time. And I think, as many social scientists have observed, is that things that happen to us when we're young, like our first love, always stick with us more firmly and more deeply than things that come later in life. So that's why it was so emotional for me, and I think that's why it stuck with me for so long. I didn't know how to deal with it at the time. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Did you ever have a conversation with Mrs. Hattie Jones? Dr. Eric Klein: Well, I tried. I certainly spoke with her sister a great deal, but Mrs. Jones was unresponsive, and that was by design. The morphine in the drip, and the IV drip was meant to keep her comfortable. I mean, we have learned a lot about palliative care in the intervening decades, so we don't do that anymore. But that was the standard of care then. Someone was in pain, and so you gave them enough narcotic medication to keep them out of pain, and whatever else happened downstream didn't matter.  I'd say one of the other powerful things about this and sort of the key event of learning that her sister was not at her side when she died was that the whole goal of care was all focused on making that happen and facilitating things for her sister and keeping her up to date. And the nursing team was on board with that and so forth. I felt like it was a big team letdown that we let this woman down and we let her sister down. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Let's talk a little bit about you at that very tender phase of your development. You're a young intern, and you've let your patient and the team down. How did you deal with that? And how have you since processed how you dealt with that? Dr. Eric Klein: This was the saddest thing that's ever happened to me. It was the saddest thing at the time. And I think in reflecting upon my career, seeing many sad things, this still resonates with me as the saddest thing ever because of the deep personal disappointment that went along. I don't have clear recollection of how I dealt with it at the time. Probably I just was sad for a few days and moved on. I mean, being a surgical intern in 1981 was very busy. We didn't have a lot of the ancillary services that we have now. The surgical service was busy, and so we moved on day to day.  This memory just popped up to me every now and then in quiet times and in discussions, in group discussions with colleagues about challenges that we faced in our career, and sometimes in talking to young people about careers in medicine and what you might experience and so forth. And so I guess I dealt with it intermittently through the years and ended up scratching my head. And finally, this was a cathartic experience for me to be in memoir writing, to be able to put this down on paper and, I hope, deal with it finally. Dr. Lidia Schapira: You make a very powerful case for storytelling as part of a practice of dealing with situations that are so emotionally complex. Forty years later, what advice would you give a young intern who is also facing a moment of extreme personal sadness and grief, and disappointment? Dr. Eric Klein: Yeah, my advice would be don't be stoic about it. That was certainly the expectation in the era that I trained. It was certainly the expectation for men. There weren't many women surgeons then, but that was certainly the expectation for men. People died—surgical mistakes happen—and we were just told it's part of the game. And I recall my chief of service telling me it puts hair on your chest. It sort of makes you a man, and so you just deal with it.  So there are so many resources that are available now and a very, very different attitude about the personal part of being a physician and dealing with disappointment and other struggles and the learning curve and all of that. So I would say to youngsters, seek out help—seek out your colleagues who might have been through it. Seek out more senior people and seek out non-physician support people who are generally available at most medical centers and medical schools to help people deal with this, talk about it, and come to terms with it sooner than 40 years. Dr. Lidia Schapira: I'm curious to know if you enjoy reading narratives written by other physicians that describe similar experiences of grief and loss. Dr. Eric Klein: I always have. So the Art of Oncology, A Piece of My Mind in JAMA, and I edit a journal called Urology, and we have a section on narrative medicine. And I think that enriches the experience for the entire medical community and helps keep us focused on our real goal, which is caring for patients. And I think that's increasingly hard in the reimbursement-driven productivity era that we live in now. And that's why I think it's important to do that. Dr. Lidia Schapira: How much have you shared about this creative, reflective side of yourself with your trainees over the years?  Dr. Eric Klein: I hope it came through. I can't say that I know for sure that it did. I guess I was known during my career as a storyteller, and I would often share anecdotes usually related to more clinical which is facing this clinical problem and how do you deal with it surgically, how do you deal with it medically, that sort of thing. And maybe less about specific patients. So it's probably better to ask my trainees if I did a good job with that. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Let's go back to this idea that storytelling is very powerful to help us in communicating with each other and processing experiences. Do you use storytelling, or have you used storytelling with your patients in the clinic?  Dr. Eric Klein: Yes, frequently. My career was mostly focused on prostate cancer, and so when I saw a new patient with prostate cancer, even if it was the most indolent kind, the very first question on their mind always is, "Am I going to die from my cancer?" And I would say I've seen lots of patients, and I'll tell you what the extremes are. I saw one patient with lymph node-positive cancer who's still alive 25 years after his initial treatment and living a normal life. And I saw one patient with really advanced cancer who died after 18 months. And I would say to them, "Your experience is going to be someplace in between those two stories." Or there might be a more specific situation of someone facing a particular treatment or surgery and they're concerned about that, and I would even hook them up with other patients who have been through it so that they could experience the story from the horse's mouth, so to speak. I think it's an important part of managing patients, I do. Dr. Lidia Schapira: So let's talk a little bit about the language and the plot in those stories. What kind of metaphors do you use, if any?  Dr. Eric Klein: Well, I had one patient tell me that I spoiled his taste for oranges because when I described the prostate, I described it like an orange with a rind or a capsule on the outside, and the cancers in the fruit in the middle. So that was one that didn't resonate ultimately. Then I switched to lemons since no one seems to like lemons and so forth. I would say the stories generally had a good outcome. Patients want their physicians to be optimistic, and certainly, patients facing cancer want their physicians to be optimistic. And I'm sure I had a lot of other specific stories to tell about specific patient experiences that don't come to mind readily now.  Dr. Lidia Schapira:  What book have you read recently that you've enjoyed and would recommend to others? Dr. Eric Klein: I would say Evil Geniuses, which is not a medical story at all. It's a story about the conservative political movement and the Federalist Society, and big business that set an agenda back in the Reagan era to take all the negativity around capitalism and conservatism out and to relax restrictions on business. And to fill the Judiciary with conservative judges and so forth, and how they have succeeded over the course of those decades to where we are now. I have to say I don't read much fiction. I honestly, I don't find fiction does much for me. I read mostly nonfiction.  Dr. Lidia Schapira: You come across as somebody who is very self-aware, and I assume it's taken a long time to be able to say things about your feelings and recognize the impact some of these patient experiences have had on you. And in the essay, you also mentioned that your wife is a physician and that you spent a lot of time together in medical school, but then the paths diverged. And I'm interested in knowing if these sorts of stories about patients came to your dinner table. Tell us a little bit about that. Dr. Eric Klein: Yeah, all the time. Actually, over the course of our careers, we would definitely share the highlights and the lowlights of our day and talk a lot about specific patients and the problems that they faced and what we learned from that. And I learned a lot from listening to my wife. She was a pediatric neurologist, so didn't deal much with cancer, but I learned a whole lot more about social determinants of health and how social circumstances really impact the patient's ability to cope with a serious diagnosis and recover from it and so forth. Because she dealt with children who came mostly from impoverished families and didn't have the same sort of family or social service support as the kind of patients that I saw, who were mostly Medicare or private insurance patients. Dr. Lidia Schapira: I must finish this interview by asking you why you think Mrs. Hattie Jones died when she did. Dr. Eric Klein: That's a great question. I think the most likely explanation, without really knowing her, but with knowing her sister and understanding the family dynamics, is that she really did not want her sister to hear the news when she was alone in the relatively impersonal environment of the hospital. Whether or not that's true, I don't know. But that's what I had chosen to believe, that she wanted her sister to hear the news when she was surrounded by her loved ones and her family. And I think that resonated nicely with the idea that I wrote about, which is being away from my family on Christmas Day and on my birthday and so forth, and being isolated and alone and how important family is to one's personal well-being and success. Dr. Lidia Schapira: I like your interpretation. I find it both wise and compassionate. And with that, I want to invite you to share with our readers why you decided to send this story out into the world. I understand the reason for writing it. What made you decide to share it and publish? Dr. Eric Klein: So let me start with a call out and a shout out to one of my other classmates, Julie, who convinced me to take memoir writing. My wife had taken it and had a good experience with it early in the DCI experience. And I was reluctant because I've only written clinical papers and scientific papers, and I just didn't sense that I had this creativity. So thank you, Julie, for convincing me.  I shared it because of the reaction I got from my classmates. The dynamic in the class was to share it with a certain number of classmates, and then we were all asked to write a constructive critique of the stories that we've written so that we could get better in memoir writing. But the emotional reaction to this, to my non-physician classmates, was so powerful, and my own reaction to it in writing it. I just read over the proofs that came the other day, and I was crying again, even though I know the story well and have been over it many times, and I thought, "This is something that might resonate with other people. This might be a universal experience." And so it was more of a lark than anything else. But I just thought the world might get something useful out of this. Dr. Lidia Schapira: Well, it resonated with your editor. One of the tests that I usually use when I read the manuscript is whether or not I'm getting teary or whether I'm feeling anything, and it certainly evoked a lot of emotion. So. Thank you, Eric.

Dr. Abraham Morgentaler is a board-certified urologist, renowned medical researcher, and entrepreneur most recognized for his role is elevating men's health to an emerging clinical specialty of crucial importance. In 1999, Dr. Morgentaler launched Men's Health Boston (MHB), the first comprehensive men's health center in the U.S. MHB's reputation as a center of excellence rose in lockstep with Dr. Morgentaler's clinical research on the relationship between testosterone deficiency, male sexual dysfunction, and prostate health. The findings were irrefutable and transformative. Dr. Morgentaler studies proved that too low, not too high, levels of testosterone could be a precursor for prostate disease. Dr. Morgentaler's clinical and research findings boldly inverted the traditional urological medical community's previous assumptions about testosterone levels. Skeptical and resistant, most continued to eschew testosterone therapy as an option for their patients. Nevertheless, he persevered, standing on the firm ground of solid medical science, positive patient response, and nearly 200 published research studies. Today, Dr. Morgentaler is internationally respected and widely known as the "Father of Testosterone Therapy." Dr. Morgentaler received his Medical Doctorate from Harvard University, completed his residency at the New England Deaconess Hospital and a Surgery Fellowship at Harvard Medical School. He is currently an Associate Clinical Professor of Urology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.

She founded Sarton Physical Therapy in 2011 with the vision to provide hope and healing to her patients, with the best possible staff and evidence-based treatment. The clinic has grown rapidly expanding to 3 offices throughout Orange County treating patients from across the country and even internationally. Dr. Sarton earned her bachelor's degree from Northern Arizona University and was awarded her doctorate from Creighton University in 1996 as part of the nation's first doctorate program in physical therapy. She went on to become part of the nation's first class of physical therapists to achieve advanced board-certification in pelvic health. Julie has more than 20 years of experience in the field, successfully treating thousands of complex patients. Through the years, Julie has had the opportunity to work closely with many of the nation's prominent physicians and physical therapists in pelvic floor dysfunction. She has lectured professionally at The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The Society for Urodynamics and Urology and The American Urogynecologic Society. A published author, Julie's work has appeared in prestigious peer-reviewed journals such as The Journal of Sexual Medicine, The Female Patient, and Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology. In 2006, she was honored with the “Rising Star in Medicine” Award from Women Sage. Considered an expert in pelvic pain, she has been featured on The Discovery Health Channel and in the Orange County Register. Julie lives in Orange County with her husband Kyle (also a physical therapist) and their two teenagers, Noah and Kylie.

Dr. Abraham Morgentaler is a board-certified urologist, renowned medical researcher, and entrepreneur most recognized for his role is elevating men's health to an emerging clinical specialty of crucial importance. In 1999, Dr. Morgentaler launched Men's Health Boston (MHB), the first comprehensive men's health center in the U.S. MHB's reputation as a center of excellence rose in lockstep with Dr. Morgentaler's clinical research on the relationship between testosterone deficiency, male sexual dysfunction, and prostate health. The findings were irrefutable and transformative. Dr. Morgentaler studies proved that too low, not too high, levels of testosterone could be a precursor for prostate disease. Dr. Morgentaler's clinical and research findings boldly inverted the traditional urological medical community's previous assumptions about testosterone levels. Skeptical and resistant, most continued to eschew testosterone therapy as an option for their patients. Nevertheless, he persevered, standing on the firm ground of solid medical science, positive patient response, and nearly 200 published research studies. Today, Dr. Morgentaler is internationally respected and widely known as the "Father of Testosterone Therapy." Dr. Morgentaler received his Medical Doctorate from Harvard University, completed his residency at the New England Deaconess Hospital and a Surgery Fellowship at Harvard Medical School. He is currently an Associate Clinical Professor of Urology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School.

These episodes are my personal exploration into podcasting and the practice of medicine using my chosen specialty of urology as the pivot point.  Most of the episodes that I write and record begin with a single idea, thought, topic, or quote. This episode is no exception, and begins with a book I read recently about James J Hill, one of the most successful railroad magnates of the gilded age in the late 19th century. I recently read a book called James J. Hill: Empire Builder of the Northwest by Michael P. Malone and I read it as part of a book club assignment that, along with Wikipedia and other online resources, is the inspiration nad source material for this episode.  James J Hill was an extremely wealthy man at the time of his death. At the end of his life, Hill was asked by a newspaper reporter to reveal the secret of his success.  Hill responded : "Work, hard work, intelligent work, and then more work.” James J Hill worked. And worked. And worked. He once is to have said, “Give me Swedes, snuff and whiskey, and I'll build a railroad through hell.” Work, hard work, intelligent work, and more work. Such was the life of James J Hill. What fascinates me, what I would love to pick James J Hill's brain about, is this idea of intelligent work.  What did he mean when he said that? What for James J Hill would constitute intelligent work.  What I am thinking about today in this short episode is the addition of more intelligent work along with work, hard and more work as the key to success as I move forward in my career.  What is that? What does it look like? How do I get it?

In this episode we discuss focal therapy for the treatment of prostate cancer.  Historically, men diagnosed with localized prostate cancer have had to choose between two treatment options: surgery and radiation therapy.  Both options involve treating the entire prostate gland, regardless of the size, location, or number of cancerous tumors.  Recently, however, more localized treatment options have become available for prostate cancer that involve focally treating only the tumors, rather than the entire prostate gland.  So, what are these focal therapies?  How do they work?  What risks are involved? What advantages do they have over traditional therapies?  And, probably most importantly, how successful are they at actually curing prostate cancer?  To answer these questions and many more, we turned to a true expert. Dr. Arvin George is an Associate Professor of Urology at the University of Michigan.  After obtaining his medical degree from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, he completed his Urology Residency at the Smith Institute for Urology at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.  He remained to complete his Endourology fellowship in New York gaining additional subspecialty expertise in robotic, laparoscopic, and percutaneous surgery.  Subsequently, he completed a Urologic Oncology fellowship at the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health.  Dr. George's research interests include minimally invasive and image-guided treatments, functional prostate imaging and focal therapy for prostate cancer.

According to Mayo Clinic, about 50% of women suffer from urinary incontinence, the inability to control urination voluntarily. However, only 25-61% of affected women discuss this problem with their healthcare providers. The resistance to sharing these urologic issues, both men and women, stem from shame and fear of judgment. This also stands true for other medical issues confined within the intimate parts of our bodies, including sexual dysfunction (whether it be low libido and premature ejaculation) and anatomical conditions (like uterine prolapse). Today, with empathy and compassion, we bring to light the pertinent issues "down there" that one may usually hide and fear.We are joined today by Dr. Fenwa Milhouse, a board-certified urologist, pelvic surgeon, and sexual health specialist.

Gore, M.D. Professor of Urology, Professor of Surgery, Health Services Researcher, University of Washington. Urologist, surgeon, clinician, researcher, educator and expert in clinical care guidelines and outcomes. Dr. Gore is the PI of a large pragmatic trial in bladder cancer, and a quality of care expert. He previously served as the American Urological Association (AUA) representative to the National Quality Forum, which endorses national health care performance measures, and has been on guidelines panels for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) for kidney cancer, and the AUA for bladder cancer.   Brian Shuch, MD is the Director of the Kidney Cancer Program and the Alvin & Carrie Meinhardt Endowed Chair in Kidney Cancer Research. He completed his urology training at UCLA followed by a Urologic Oncology Fellowship at the National Cancer Institute. He is an accomplished surgeon (open/laparoscopic/robotic surgery and percutaneous ablations) and clinical/translational researcher. He serves in leadership positions within various kidney cancer research organizations such as SWOG and the Society of Urologic Oncology. He is recognized as an expert in the genetics of kidney cancer and runs a translational research program with over 140 peers reviewed publications including primary research published in prestigious journals such as Nature, Nature Genetics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Clinical Oncology, and Clinical Cancer Research. He is one of the few clinicians to bring bench science to the bedside in an upcoming therapeutic clinical trial for metastatic kidney cancer.   During This Episode We Discuss: The types of Kidney Cancer   Non cancerous kidney cysts (benign) versus cancerous kidney cysts,   Solid kidney tumors, benign and malignant   Diagnosis of kidney cancers: Imaging and Biopsy   Risk factors for kidney cancers   Genomics of kidney cancer   Treatment of kidney cancer: Localized and Metastatic Quotes (Tweetables) Back in the olden days we used to talk about the triad of three symptoms people associated with kidney cancer. Those three symptoms were hematuria or blood in the urine, palpable mass, and flank pain. Realistically in 2023 this triad happens less than 1% of the time. What has changed is that there is a much higher frequency of use of imaging to diagnose problems in our bodies. Kidney cancer is one of the fastest growing cancer types in terms of it's incidence, because of incidental detection.                                                                                  Dr Gore   Regarding tumor size, it all depends on the scenario.The larger the lesion the more concerning it is for cancer, but even a 1 cm tumor can have some aggressive elements. There is not an absolute size where you say that a tumor below this threshold cannot be a cancer.                                                                                Dr Shuch Most kidney cancers are what we would call sporadic, in that it occurs in the absence of known risk factors. The 2 biggest risk factors that are more behavioral are smoking and obesity.                                                                                 Dr Gore                                                                                Recommended Resources:   KCA: Kidney Cancer Association www.kidneycancer.org   Kidney Can www.kidneycan.org   KC Cure  www.kccure.org   American Cancer Society   Fred Hutchinson   UCLA

Bladder Cancers begin on the inner surface of the bladder, in the lining cells called the transitional cells. Bladder cancer is most often a transitional cell carcinoma.  Bladder cancers most often grow as a polyp on the surface of the bladder or as a flat tumor called a “sessile” tumor. Bladder cancers can invade the deeper layers of the bladder and they becomes much more likely to spread if they become invasive. Bladder cancers can also grow along the surface of the bladder into something called carcinoma in situ. Bladder cancers can be low grade (slower growing) or high grade (faster growing and more aggressive).  Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor for forming bladder cancer and blood in the urine is the most common sign or symptom. Tumors that form along the surface of the bladder can be lopped off under anesthesia using a transurethral (through the urethra) resection technique. For many patients this is the only treatment they will need. Patients with invasive tumors or carcinoma in situ need more aggressive treatment.  Bladder cancer is a disease with a high recurrence rate. Even small low grade tumors resected completely have a high risk of recurrent tumors in a relatively short period of time either in the area of resection or in any part of the urinary system where we find transitional cells, most often the bladder but also the renal pelvis draining the kidney, the ureters that transport urine down to the bladder and the urethra. Even the slow growing bladder cancer grow quickly enough that if not caught early enough they will cause complications such as bleeding and pain, or, worse, they can convert to high grade tumors that become invasive. Bladder cancers take constant surveillance to make sure the cancer has not come back.
