Urologist

Hello dr Bets

What exactly does a urologist do for a male? Will he/she exam the prostate and the male reproductive system as a whole?

Thank you.

Hallo Kika
GP's can also examine the prostate but an urologist would do more in depth examinations like sonars, or scopes under anaesthetic or biopsies of the prostate if needed. They also do tests like bladder function tests and removing of bladder or kidney stones etc
