Men's Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is a urologic specialty that diagnoses and treats diseases of the urinary tract and reproductive organs. Most men will experience a urologic problem at some time during their lives.

What happens during a men’s health consultation?

At San Fernando Valley Urological Associates, no two men’s health consultations are exactly alike. Your provider tailors the visit to your individual needs.

Before making any treatment recommendations, your provider does a thorough physical exam and reviews your medical history. They ask you about your symptoms, including how severe they are, and if any activities like drinking alcohol make them worse.

If the exam and questionnaire don’t provide enough insight into your symptoms, your provider might recommend additional testing and procedures, like a urinalysis, a CT scan, or an ultrasound of your bladder. After determining what’s causing your discomfort, your San Fernando Valley Urological Associates provider develops a custom treatment plan.

How are men’s health problems treated?

How a men’s health problem is treated depends on the underlying issue. Whenever possible, the San Fernando Valley Urological Associates team recommends conservative treatments, like drinking more water, exercising regularly, and eating a balanced diet.

More severe conditions can require treatment with prescription medication, surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy.
