The prostate produces seminal fluid, which nourishes and transports sperm during ejaculation. The size and function of the prostate can change with age, and it is susceptible to various conditions that can affect urinary and sexual health in men.
It is important to note that this list covers some of the common prostate conditions, but there are other less common conditions as well. Additionally, each individual case can vary, and treatment options depend on various factors. Consultation with a healthcare professional is essential for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. Regular screenings and check-ups are important for prostate health, especially as men age.
All of our urologists have significant experience managing common prostate conditions and performing surgery for prostate disease. However, some of our specialists have longer waiting times than others due to their various sub-specialised areas of expertise in specific procedures, or their commitment to public practice. If you are unsure which specialists to see, or want to ensure the shortest waiting time, please contact us for a recommendation.
