Laparoscopy
A technique of surgery that utilizes a camera and scope and specialized instruments that allow the surgeon to use small incisions (about half an inch long) to perform surgery that would otherwise require larger incisions. This type of surgery often offers the patients a quicker recovery with less pain than surgery with larger incisions.
Libido
Desire or interest in sexual activity. Prostate cancer diagnosis and its treatment can affect this.
