Convincing Reasons to Visit an Urologist, Even If You are Healthy

We all know perfectly well that if a man feels OK, it’s hard if not impossible to convince him to see a health specialist. Men don’t apply for medical help until they have an acute pain or grave disease. Meanwhile, many of these serious diseases could be avoided if men made it a routine to see a doctor regularly, at least once a year. One of the main men’s health specialists is an urologist. Men over 40 must see him every year, even if they don’t have any complaints. And if a man experiences any types of problems in the genitourinary sphere, he should go to an urologist immediately. The only timely revealing of the problem and its treatment helps to avoid chronic forms of serious diseases, infertility and potency disorders. There are some insidious diseases, which are not evident up to a certain time, and only a doctor can reveal them. Careless attitude to health can cost too much.

Hidden infections

Hidden or subclinical infections are asymptomatic, but they have a negative impact on the state of health in general and the reproductive system in particular. The most common subclinical infections are chlamydia, herpes, mycoplasmosis, ureaplasmosis, cytomegala virus and some others. It’s virtually impossible to reveal these diseases without special medical tests, that is why men don’t apply for medical help for years. Meanwhile, hidden infections can cause a lot of negative consequences including infertility. Advanced stage of such infection can cause spermatocystitis, prostatitis, epididymitis and other nasty diseases. All types of these infections can be effectively cured if the treatment is timely. They are treated only with special antibiotics under a strict medical control. So, men, especially those living an active sexual life must see an urologist at least once a year and have their samples taken.


One more insidious disease that strikes almost 50 percent of men after 45-50 is prostatitis. It can be almost asymptomatic at early stages, but if it there is no adequate treatment, it can acquire a chronical form. This, in turn, causes a lot of negative effects. Chronic prostatitis is often associated with erectile dysfunction and other sexual problems, such as painful ejaculation and an inability of experiencing orgasm. For the treatment of these sexual disorders, men have to take not only antibiotics but also Viagra pills, which are necessary for erectile function restoration, as well as undergo some unpleasant medical procedures, such as prostate milking. If not treated properly, prostatitis can cause prostatic gland cancer.

Fortunately, all these problems can be avoided, if a man pays due attention to the prevention. Preventive measures usually include healthy nutrition, physical activity, avoiding stresses, regular and satisfactory sexual life, and regular visiting of a doctor. Your health is the most precious thing you have, so, take care of it. After all, it is much easier to prevent a disease than to treat it.
