Urology Awareness Month

September is Urology Awareness Month in the UK.

It is estimated that 1 in 2 of us will be affected by a urology condition in our lifetime. Our urology health is vital to our quality of life. But diseases and cancers of the kidneys, bladder, prostate and the male reproductive system are becoming more prevalent and devastating the lives of millions of men, women and children in the UK.

It is vital that if you are experiencing any of the symptoms below then contact your GP and be referred for immediate assessment.

1. Blood in your urine
2. Passing urine more frequently
3. Testicular pain or lumps
4. Irritative urinary symptoms 
5. Erectile dysfunction or reduced sex drive
 

Mr Baird, Urological Consultant and Mr Lucky, Urological and Andrological Consultant at The Sefton Suite in Liverpool both have the same advice.

“Often, we take for granted how important our urological health is, the ability to urinate, to reproduce and to process foods and drink we consume. Some symptoms of a problem are silent symptoms and will only be located once tested but there are a number of symptoms we can see and feel that should never be ignored.”
 
These are important conditions which can significantly affect quality of life and have a serious impact on relationships and mental health. It is often difficult to discuss these personal issues with your doctor but there are lots of treatments available which can have a tremendous impact on symptoms. 
The simple message is take your health seriously, react to any symptoms immediately and put your mind at rest. The ability of specialists to deal with and assist is greatly increased the earlier the symptoms are checked and managed, see your doctor straight away and be referred to a specialist.
 
The old adage ‘better safe than sorry’ is key to successful management of a problem!
