Men's Health

Our GPs have a high level on knowledge in both broad and specific men’s health problems. If you would like to see a male GP, please notify the receptionist at the time of booking.

General health concerns

Men are often reluctant to come to see the doctor unless they have a specific problem. Depending on their age and family history, men can be at higher risk of numerous health problems including heart attack and stroke. The risk of these can often be decreased with a preventative health check, with monitoring simple things like blood pressure, weight, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Please see a GP to discuss your preventative health measures in more detail.

Advice on prostate / testicular problems

There is a lot of conflicting information and advice on checking for prostate problems including prostate cancer. Signs that you may have a prostate problem can include passing urine more frequently or at night, weak urine stream, blood in the urine, difficulty initiating the stream or lots of dribbling at the end. If you have any concerns about these or any other questions about checking prostate health please discuss them with a GP.

Sexual health

Many sexually transmitted infections, such as chlamydia, may not show any symptoms. Therefore, if you have had unprotected sex with a partner you could potentially have a sexually transmitted infection and not be aware of it. If left untreated this can result in potentially serious health problems in future, as well as possibly being passed on to future partners. If you have been sexually active and have any concerns about potentially carrying a sexually transmitted infection please see a GP to discuss testing options.

If you are a man who has sex with other men you may be at higher risk of sexually transmitted infection and may require more comprehensive / frequent testing. Please discuss this with your GP.

Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation are common male health complaints that we see. There are many possible causes and treatment options for these. Please see your GP for any concerns.
