Urology deals with the diseases of the male genital organs, as well as urinary tract disorders, and diseases that occur both in men and women.
In men, a urology specialist also addresses the diseases of the penis, the testicles, the epididymis and the prostate. The malignant cancer of the prostate is the second most common cause of cancer mortality in men. The prevalence of prostate cancer has increased significantly in the past decades; therefore, screening is recommended for all men over 40.
It is recommended for both men and women to visit a urology specialist in case of the following symptoms:
Most common complaints for men:
The urologist specialist asks the patients about their complaints, medical history,
and urological diseases in their family. This is followed by physical examinations,
which are painless. To establish an accurate diagnosis, further examinations might be needed, for example laboratory or ultrasound examinations.
The number of prostate problems increases in men over 40, and in some cases, these problems are caused by cancer. At an early stage, when it can be successfully cured, prostate cancer is usually totally asymptomatic and causes no complaints.
Potential lesions can be detected with a high degree of certainty with a complex laboratory examination, as well as a fast, discrete and professional physical examination performed by the urology specialist, and also via modern diagnostic imaging examinations, if needed.
For men, the most alarming examination, the digital prostate examination – performed through the anus – only lasts for five seconds. The examination is performed with adequate empathy and gentleness by the specialists at our men’s health centre. We provide a calm, discrete environment for the entire examination at our health centre.
