Men’s Health Services

Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a problem that affects men, increasingly more so as they age. This may considerably impact a man’s sense of well-being, relationships, and quality of life.

Talk to our doctors if you have any concerns about ED, even if you may feel embarrassed. ED can be treated or reversed and it will require a holistic assessment of one’s symptoms to form an accurate diagnosis of Erectile Dysfunction. There are many causes of ED and it could be a sign of an underlying health condition that needs treatment.

Current treatments for ED have advanced to work more effectively and rapidly. Treatment options include oral medications, injectables and ESWT (Electro Shock Wave Treatment).

Testosterone deficiency syndrome (TDS), also known as hypogonadism or having low testosterone is one of the leading causes of Erectile Dysfunction (ED) or loss of libido.

Common symptoms experienced by men are tiredness, lethargy, poor sex drive/ libido and an inability to maintain to or initiate an erection. Causes of TDS are both lifestyle and biochemical. Talk to our doctors to for an accurate diagnosis of TDS or Hypogonadism; it is crucial in getting the right treatment and management strategy.

There are many approaches for Low Testosterone Management or Andropause (male menopause) Management. One common approach is the initiation of Hormone Replacement Therapy. This is either administered as a gel, patch or an injection.

There will come a point in our lives when sex hormones in our body undergo a gradual decline in production as one age. Whilst this is known as menopause in women, it is often known as Andropause in men.

The symptoms experienced during Andropause progress gradually and may start off with feelings of tiredness, a decrease in sexual desire and libido and feelings of unexplained sadness.

A possible treatment option will be testosterone replacement. Talk to our doctors if you are experiencing any symptoms, or have any concerns or questions about Andropause.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a sexual problem that occurs when a man ejaculates too quickly after penetration and before he is ready. This leads to the penis being limp and often results in the couple being distressed and troubled during sexual intercourse.

Common causes of PE are usually psychological;

  • Anxiety
  • Poor body image
  • Early sexual experiences

Talk to our doctors and get help for PE. Treatment options for PE include behavioural techniquestopical creams and oral medications.

Peyronie’s Disease results from fibrous scar tissue that develops on the penis and causes bent, painful erections.

This could be due to damage to the penis during intercourse resulting in a scar or plaque that keeps the penis bent during erection. Significant bent penis curvatures can result in decreased sexual enjoyment from pain or poor erections. Intercourse is unable to proceed if the curvature of the penis exceeds 60 degrees.

Electro Shock Wave Treatment (ESWT) is an option to treat Peyronie’s Disease. It works by delivering low intensity shock wave to the scar or plaque, thereby breaking it up. Talk to our doctors to see if you are experiencing Peyronie’s Disease.

Discovering blood in the sperm (Haematospermia) is an unusual symptom.

It can either be a tinge or copious amount of blood. Blood in sperm is commonly seen in men who have undergone a prostate procedure. Common causes of Hematospermia (blood in semen) may include infections, tumours, vascular, systemic diseases or trauma.

Diagnosis of Haematospermia would involve a thorough investigation of one’s sexual and urological history. This would involve blood, urine, semen tests and imaging scans to determine the cause of the problem. The subsequent treatment of Haematospermia would then be tailored to the cause of the problem.

Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) or Fordyce spots are enlarged oil glands found commonly around the glans of the penis.

They are better seen when the foreskin is retracted. They are 1-2mm in size and have a white pearl-like appearance. It may look cosmetically unpleasant and sometimes are mistaken for a sexually transmitted disease. Diagnosis of Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) is a clinical diagnosis and determined quickly by a trained eye.

One of the biggest concerns is whether these are genital warts or a variation of it. The answer is no, as these PPP are normal variations of Penile anatomy. Treatment for Pearly Penile Papules (PPP) is a quick a straightforward clinical procedure which is often done in less than half an hour. Talk to our doctors if you are experiencing Pearly Penile Papules (PPP).

The frenulum is the thin piece of skin that connects the foreskin to the head of the penis.

Painful erections or painful sexual intercourse experienced by men are often caused by a tight band adhered to the base of glans of the penis to the foreskin. Even with circumcision, some men still have this condition. Diagnosis of Frenulum Breve is made when the foreskin is unable to retract fully on the shaft of the penis because of this tight band limiting the foreskin’s movement.

Surgical Treatment for Frenulum Breve (Penile Frenulectomy) is the treatment of choice and is done in the clinic under local anaesthesia. After an injection to numb the area, the tight band is cut and released. Stitches are removed after 1 week and full recovery takes about a month.

Diagnosis of the Androgenic Alopecia also known as Male Pattern Hair loss involves a detailed medical history with clinical examination and sometimes a blood test. There are many different causes of male hair loss, it is vital to get the correct diagnosis as it will affect the treatment. Male Pattern Hair loss can often be unsightly and may occur in younger men.

Clinically proven male pattern hair loss treatments consist of oral medications, topical medications, hair transplant (surgical procedure) or a Hair Loss Treatment with Regenera Activa.

Circumcision is the surgical removal of foreskin. The procedure is performed for patients with recurrent foreskin redness, inflammation, pain, infection or those with a tight foreskin (Phimosis).

For most males, retraction of the foreskin provides optimum exposure of the penis for cleaning and enhances hygiene. But those with Phimosis may find penile hygiene a challenge. Medical studies have also shown that male circumcision decreases the risk of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) transmission by more than 60%.

Circumcision is a surgical procedure done in clinic and involves the initial injection of local anaesthesia. Speak to our doctors for more information about circumcision.

Redness, pain and inflammation experienced around the foreskin can be a sign of Balanitis.

Diagnosis of Foreskin infection (Balanitis) is made with a careful clinical exam and necessary lab tests. It will also be important to understand other factors which may have led to the foreskin infection such as sexual health concerns or hygiene concerns.

Adults with a tight foreskin (phimosis) may be more prone to getting balanitis as bacteria, dirt and urine may get trapped in the foreskin.

Treatment for a foreskin infection would typically involve a course of oral and or topical antibiotics. Circumcision may be recommended if the balanitis has been recurrent due to a build-up of bacteria under the foreskin.

Soreness, Itchiness, Redness, Irritating, Swelling, Discharge, smelly odour around the penis can be a sign of Penile Infection.

The diagnosis of penile infection is a clinical one and further lab tests are often ordered, especially in the presence of a sexual health concern.

Treatment for penile infection is the same as Balanitis where the root cause is first addressed and subsequently a course of oral and or topical antibiotics is started. If a tight foreskin is present, circumcision is also advised to prevent a build-up of dirt and bacteria under the foreskin which can become a nidus of infection.

Early detection saves lives.

Many types of prostate cancers are slow growing, and may not cause any symptoms for a long time; however, some types can be more aggressive and grow rapidly.

Symptoms are not always present in prostate cancer, and conversely, the presence of symptoms does not always mean that it exists. However, if symptoms appear, commonly they are:

  • Urination issues
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • Difficulty obtaining or maintaining an erection
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Bone pain from metastatic disease (usually in the thigh bones, pelvis, or lower back)

There are many effective options for prostate cancer, especially when detected and treated early, speak to our doctors if you have any concerns or questions about prostate cancer screening.

Prostatitis refers mainly to inflammation of the prostate gland, either by infection or various other causes.

Symptoms of Prostatitis can vary depending on the cause, but can include:

  • Discomfort, pain, or burning during urination
  • Cloudy urine
  • Blood in urine or semen
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pain while having sex
  • Painful ejaculation
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature ejaculation

Common causes of Prostatitis include sexually transmitted infections or diseases (STI’s/STD’s) such as Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea.

There are different types of prostatitis, so treatment options and effectiveness will depend on the type and severity of the condition. Speak to our doctors today if you are experiencing any symptoms of prostatitis or pelvic pain.

Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia BPH is a non-cancerous condition where the prostate enlarges.

Symptoms usually interfere with the patient’s quality of life and sleep. If there is chronic obstruction by the prostate, urine can chronically be retained, which can damage the kidneys and bladder. It can also result in urinary tract infections and stones as well.

The doctor might order some urine studies, an ultrasound and some blood tests to look at the kidney function and the level of Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) in the blood.

BPH is easily manageable and treating it can improve the quality of your life significantly. Speak to our doctors today to discuss your symptoms.

In 30-50% of couples having infertility issues, male factors (male infertility) are at play, and nearly all the cases are related to sperm issues. The best way to investigate a sperm issue is with a semen analysis.

Male fertility tests available:

  • Seminal analysis
  • Scrotum ultrasound

Male infertility is an important consideration for couples trying to conceive. The tests involved are fast and simple. There are also ways to improve male fertility. If you do have issues with infertility, seek medical attention.

Paraphimosis is a condition in which the foreskin can’t be returned to its normal position after being retracted (foreskin gets stuck behind the head of the penis).

Common symptoms are:

  • Pain and swelling of the glans penis
  • Inability to retract the foreskin back over to the penile glans
  • Discolouration, either dark red or bluish colour of the penis

Paraphimosis becomes an emergency if the symptoms do not resolve and it may result in necrosis (death of tissue) of the glans. You should seek medical attention as soon as possible if the symptoms persist.

Once the foreskin is put back in its original position covering the head of the penis, everything goes back to normal. Any swelling or pain fades extremely quickly.
If the problem keeps recurring, the patient should consider undergoing a circumcision to prevent the problem from coming back.
