Why should men visit a urologist regularly?
Much like women visit a gynecologist for female-specific care, men should visit a urologist for their extended health care needs. After the age of 40, a man’s body can start to develop issues with the prostate gland, urinary system, and male sex hormones. Through an annual urology checkup these potential issues can be detected early when treatment is most successful and complications can be prevented.
What is included in a men’s health checkup?
The checkup includes a prostate exam to determine if your prostate has become enlarged. An enlarged prostate can make it difficult to urinate, but an annual exam will determine the state of your prostate as it changes with age, and any necessary precautions can be taken to help shrink or treat it. An annual men’s wellness exam will likely also include:
A screening for prostatitis.
An evaluation of your testosterone level
An evaluation for erectile dysfunction.
If your doctor discovers a shortage of testosterone, they can provide a boost in the hormone through injections or supplements. There are also many treatments available for resolving ED and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
Are there other advantages to annual men’s health visits?
Yes. An annual exam with a board-certified urologist, such as the expert team at Urology of Greater Atlanta, enables men to have an open dialogue about any health concerns that may otherwise not be addressed, such as questions about fertility and sexual health.
With annual health checkups, men can approach their sexual health concerns in a familiar, comfortable environment. If having children has already been checked off the list, for instance, vasectomies are available and can be discussed during a checkup.
Our urologist team operates out of six offices and a surgical center to serve the needs of all Northern Georgia residents.
