They are a crucial part of the male reproductive system and are responsible for producing sperm and testosterone, the primary male sex hormone. The testicles are connected to the rest of the reproductive system through a network of ducts and blood vessels.
It is important to note that this list covers some of the common testicular 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 testicular self-examinations and medical check-ups are important for testicular health.
All of our urologists have significant experience managing common testicular conditions and performing surgery for testicular 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.
