Our doctors are experienced with a range of medical issues faced by men, and we have multiple male practitioners capable of assisting with any issues if it is preferable working with them. We highly recommend people have regular check ups with their usual GPs, and are focused on providing preventative measures to achieve optimal health for our patients. We understand that often men can be reluctant to get check-ups and screenings, but these are essential to managing their health and we encourage you to do so in a relaxed and regular fashion. Some of the more common men’s health issues we are well experienced with are:
Prostate cancer is the most common form of non-skin cancer in men and the likelihood of it developing increases with age, making it a crucial regular check up for any man. Symptoms of it include difficulty or discomfort when urinating, or blood in semen or urine. Our doctors are experienced at both the process of checking the prostate and ensuring the experience is as manageable and stress free as possible.

Cholesterol can be managed through healthy eating and regular exercise, and should be checked regularly as high levels increase your chances of heart disease or stroke. If you have any concerns about your cholesterol, it’s best to have a consultation with a doctor to work through any concerns.
Sustained periods of high blood pressure can be a significant factor for heart disease, with blood pressure typically increasing as men age. Often there are few to no symptoms of high blood pressure, so getting a regular check up with a GP is essential.
Bowel Cancer Screening
We have experience running bowel cancer screening tests, and it is recommended that men get checked for these at least every 2 years from age 50, or 45 if there is a history of bowel cancer in the family.
Issues with fertility are common among males, with about 1 in 6 men experiencing fertility related issues, and our doctors are well equipped to help you work through any questions or concerns you may have in this area.
