Doctors stressed the need for a patient with urinary tract and andrology diseases to visit medical clinics so that the situation does not worsen.
They said that some refuse to go to the clinic for fear of society’s view, and enter into a state of anxiety and tension, and because of this anxiety may worsen their condition.
Dr. Haluk Kolakcioglu, Professor and Specialist of Urology and Andrology, Health Hub Clinic, Dubai Festival City, says: Men often resort to treating such problems themselves without a doctor’s prescription, but studies have shown that some of these treatments may negatively affect health, while consulting Urologists, on the other hand, specialize in physical therapy, besides its usefulness in eliminating potential psychological effects, such as feeling angry, anxious or depressed.
Urologists are concerned with evaluating men’s health problems in a safe and comfortable environment where patients can discuss their concerns openly and confidentially and receive a prescription for appropriate treatment.
Among the health problems common in men:
Impotence: Doctors point out that this condition is the most common health problem for men in the world.
Peyronie’s disease: It is caused by the growth of fibrous scar tissue inside the penis, which causes a curved and painful erection during intercourse in some cases.
Low testosterone: This condition causes several other problems that affect a large percentage of men, including loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, and a decline in sexual desire with the possibility of impotence.
Early ejaculation: It is a common problem that can be treated, and a doctor must be consulted in case of recurrence to suggest available solutions. Patients may be referred to a psychologist to check for signs of anxiety or relationship problems.
Tips for the first visit to the urologist
Do not be afraid to ask questions: Get rid of the feeling of embarrassment and do not hesitate to ask the doctor about any issue that comes to your mind. The urologist communicates with many patients every day and is able to give the necessary advice and guidance.
•Privacy and confidentiality: Be sure that the doctor will maintain your privacy and the confidentiality of everything related to you or your health.
Psychological counseling: Anxiety and marital relationship problems may play a role in the development or exacerbation of symptoms, so consulting a psychologist can help reduce psychological factors that affect health.
Other non-drug therapies: Medications are not the only treatment for men’s health problems, but there are many other options that your doctor can direct you to.
