There’s more to being healthy than your urinary tract. But it’s a good place to start.

Urinary ProblemsFor men, staying healthy does involve watching out for a fairly wide variety of potential urological-related issues. And at Collin County Urology, we treat everything from the most benign bladder infection to prostate cancer. We also understand that overall health can affect all urological conditions, and it definitely plays a roll in treatment and recovery from any urological disease.

So as you already know, men, you also need to be aware of your weight, your blood pressure and your cholesterol. You should know the signs of a heart attack, depression and diabetes. But men are known for sometimes ignoring aches and pains and other signs of health problems that should send them to the doctor.

Men will tough out a lot of health issues that they probably shouldn’t, but when it comes to problems in and around the penis, we think you might be more likely to seek out medical care. That’s a step in the right direction!

And there are certain problems that we see fairly regularly at our office that may or may not be serious, but should definitely be on a man’s health radar. You should make an appointment today if you have any of the symptoms related to the four urinary problems listed below. Call us at 972-403-5425. We can discuss your unique symptoms, diagnose your problem and come up with a treatment plan.
