Men spend several minutes each day staring blankly at the porcelain while urinating. But while you’re doing this, you may be overlooking one of the simplest ways of judging how healthy you are.

Take action:
You should see your doctor if: your urine has a red colour, which indicates that you have blood in your urine; you notice a significant change in the frequency of your urination; you have trouble starting to urinate; you feel a burning sensation or back pain when you urinate; your urine remains cloudy over a prolonged period and smells strongly of ammonia.
