Urologist to the rescue of men’s health
Urology is the branch of medicine that deals with the protection and reproductive and sexual health of the male genital organ, helping man in his biological and psychic development. Compared to its female counterpart (gynecology) it is a rather recent science – we start talking about urology in the late sixties – and there are no official academic specializations, but some doctors specializing in urology and endocrinology are dedicated to this field.
Urology uses these specialists for the diagnosis and therapy of the pathologies treated, but not only. In fact, only through the health of the body combined with that of the mind is it possible to achieve the health and well-being of the genital system. For this reason, urology deals with pathologies related to the male apparatus, approaching them not only under the surgical aspect, but also through information dialogue and listening, to examine the psychological and emotional relevance that this type of disorder can have on the patient. The pathologies most treated by urology include erectile dysfunction, premature or delayed ejaculation, infertility, testicular tumors, sexually transmitted diseases, twisting and testicular trauma. Urology also pays close attention to the prevention of certain pathologies related to the male genital organs, to the information of contraception systems and to responsible parenthood. Prostatic pathologies and andropause are also treated by urologists, bringing even older men closer to this medical branch.
