In urology & sexual health, our doctors diagnose & treat male disorders that affect the urinary system & reproductive organs. Urological health issues may involve the kidneys, adrenals, urethra, ureters, bladder, prostate, or male reproductive organs (testes, epididymis, seminal vesicles, penis). Sexual health, UTI, prostate issues, & kidney stones all fall under this branch of medicine.

When you come in for a consultation with one of our GPs, the doctor will examine you, ask you questions about any symptoms or concerns, & then make the most appropriate recommendations. This may include urine or blood testing, scans or other imaging, x-rays, & ultrasounds, depending on your symptoms. Any necessary referrals will be organised for you, & in most cases, we can get you a same-day appointment.

Symptoms

Urological issues cover a range of medical conditions, like urinary tract infections (UTI) & prostate issues, as well as surgical problems like bladder or prostate cancer & kidney stones. Sexual health also falls under this category, & you may wish to come in for a sexual health screening if you have had unprotected sex or are experiencing dysuria (pain on urination), unusual discharge, or other sexual health-related symptoms.

Some of the urological symptoms for which you may wish to have an appointment with a GP include the following:

  • Needing to urinate more frequently than usual
  • Urinary urgency (needing to urinate very suddenly)
  • Penile discharge
  • Pain or burning sensation with urination (dysuria)
  • Cloudy urine, urine with a noticeable odour
  • Blood in your urine (haematuria)
  • Pain in the scrotum (testicles) or groin
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Pain in the low back or lower abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Feeling generally unwell
  • Fatigue

There are a number of common urological & sexual health issues that could be causing your symptoms. Our doctors will give you a thorough examination, talk to you about your symptoms & any relevant lifestyle factors or family history, & can recommend further testing where necessary.

We also have the option of full sexual health testing, if you are concerned about STDs or if your symptoms indicate that STI testing is relevant. Do not worry if you aren’t sure what kind of testing you need. During your consultation, the doctor can recommend the most appropriate testing for your individual case. If you need to see a urologist or other specialist for diagnosis, imaging, further advice or treatment, this can be arranged for you at no extra cost.

In addition, if any of your recommended tests show infection, we can organise a prescription for you.

We also offer testing for prostate-specific antigen (PSA), which indicates your risk of prostate cancer. Both the PSA test & a sexual health screen can be added on to any of our Wellman health screening packages at a discount, so if you are looking to get a general overview of your health in addition to specific testing, this could be an option for you.

FAQs

Can I request to be seen by a male doctor?

Absolutely, please feel free to ask when you make your booking. We always have male doctors available. If one is not available at the booking time you specify, we will let you know & offer you some other times.

I think I have a testicular lump. Should I wait to see if it goes away?

No, you should come in to get checked out at as soon as possible. The vast majority of testicular lumps are benign but as this is the main early sign of testicular cancer, it is important that you don’t ignore it.

What are the symptoms of bladder cancer?

One of the most prominent symptoms of bladder cancer is blood in the urine. There are other possible causes for haematuria, however, so do not panic if you experience this, but please do get yourself checked by a GP as soon as possible.
