A circumcision can be carried out for either religious reasons or for medical reasons. When for medical reasons it can often be because the skin around the tip of the penis is tight and causing restriction when urinating or making it difficult to clean which can lead to infection. The restriction can also make it uncomfortable for a man to have sex.
A cystoscopy is a procedure that uses a thin instrument with a small camera on the end to investigate the bladder. A cystoscopy may be recommended to investigate symptoms such as kidney stones, infection, tumours, polyps or cancer of the urethra or bladder.
Urinary incontinence refers to the inability to control or stop the flow of urine. It is a condition that can affect both men and women. Sometime leakage can occur when we cough or laugh in more extreme cases there is a complete loss of bladder control. Frequent urges to pass urine can also be a sign of incontinence.
A vasectomy procedure is carried out as part of male sterilisation when a man decides he would no long like to have children and have sex without worrying about making his partner pregnant. Should his circumstances change at a later stage a vasectomy reversal procedure can always be done to make it possible to have children once again.
When the bladder empties muscles work to squeeze urine through the urethra. There are problems that can cause pain. The most common are urinary tract infection, cystitis and bladder cancer. You should initially consult your GP when suffering from any pain symptoms.
Prostate assessment and treatment
Over time the prostate grows naturally without any problems. In some cases, this growth can impact the urethra and restrict the flow of urine. This condition is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). At BMI Goring Hall Hospital, we offer a comprehensive prostate assessment as well as the below treatments.
IPSS Score (International Prostate Symptom Score)
Rectal and Testicular Examination
PSA (blood test)
Symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia include:
Weak urine stream
Post voiding dribbling
Difficulty emptying the bladder
Hesitancy/difficulty to initiate urination
Increase frequency of urination
People most at risk from enlarged prostate tend to be men above the age of 40. Many of these symptoms can be picked up in routine screening, therefore it’s important to get a health assessment if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
