As men age, over-active bladder (OAB) symptoms (urgency, frequency, nocturia) are commonly seen. Typically, these symptoms are secondary to the development of benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Alpha-blocking and/or antimuscarinic agents are commonly prescribed to treat such symptoms. In this podcast we review the COBALT study which examines the benefits of behavioral treatments (pelvic floor muscle training and fluid restriction before bedtime) alone or combined with drug therapy to treat OAB symptoms.

Lung Cancer Screening: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Weights In - Frankly Speaking EP 192

Guest: Robert A. Baldor, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Currently a low-dose CT scan is the only screening test for lung cancer that is recommended by the American Cancer Society. In July 2020, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a draft recommendation statement on screening for lung cancer. The USPSTF suggests annual screening with low-dose CT for individuals aged 50-80 who have a 20 pack-year smoking history and who currently smoke or have quit smoking within the past 15 years. These recommendations expand screening eligibility, but they also suggest that screening be discontinued if a person has not smoked for 15 years, develops a health problem that substantially limits life expectancy, or is unable or unwilling to have curative lung surgery.
