An urologist helps both men and women, despite the fact that many people see him as a "male" doctor. Actually, the urologist takes up genitourinary system issues of both men and women.
- Timely diagnosis and treatment of cancer (ultrasound, laboratory testing, biopsy);
- Treatment of sexual dysfunction;
- Full range of services including surgical treatment.
These diseases are very common and they greatly affect the quality of life, but now all of them are treatable. Therefore, it is especially important to visit the urologist in time.
Besides, an urologist-andrologist treats all known urological pathologies, helps to prepare for pregnancy, diagnoses and treats male infertility.
Who is an urologist?
An urologist is a doctor who treats both male and female genitourinary system diseases as well as diseases of male reproductive system organs.

What happens during an urologist’s appointment
An urologist interviews the patient, asks about symptoms and reviews data on previous examinations (if any). Afterwards, the doctor examines the patient, and, if necessary, prescribes additional investigations or tests. Having defined the issue, the urologist develops a treatment schedule and prescribes a follow-up appointment.
When should I get a prostate cancer screening?
Prostate cancer is very common. In some countries, it ranks 2-3 after gastric cancer and lung cancer as the cause of death. The WHO recommends to begin annual prostate cancer screening at the age of 50. However, given the increase in early morbidity, we believe that you should begin at the age of 40-45 to be sure.
PSA test should be taken once a year (it should be taken more often in case of “borderline” indicators). A slight increase of PSA concentration (more than 4 ng/ml) may indicate prostatitis, while a higher concentration may indicate a malignant tumor.
It should be mentioned that prostate cancer in Russia is diagnosed late. This is specifically because men neglect routine checkups, and prostate cancer is treatable at early stages.
