Symptoms You Should Never Ignore

Some conditions are silent, and you might not be aware that you have a problem until it is revealed through tests. However, there are some extremely important symptoms you should never ignore as they could possibly indicate a urological problem.

When should you see a urologist?

While there are some conditions that are exclusive to men, the following symptoms should never be ignored by women or men:

Blood in your urine

Consistent pain or burning while urinating

Frequent urinary tract infections

Frequent need to urinate or difficulty urinating

Incontinence

Conditions exclusive to men:

Erectile dysfunction

Infertility

Change in your prostate-specific antigen (PSA)

Abnormal prostate exam

Testicular swelling with pain

In its early stages, prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men, often has no symptoms. It is recommended that men start having their prostate checked at the age of 50 with a PSA test repeated every two to four years. Urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections are two conditions that afflict women but any urinary problem in women can be treated by a urologist.

Dr Makanjuola is a member of the American Urology Association, the British Association

of Urological Surgeons, and the European Association of Urology. He will be at the North

Shore Medical & Aesthetics Centre from October 21 to October 25, 2019.
