Urologists and Andrologists in London: What's the Difference?

Many men know that the women's sexual health specialist is called a gynecologist. However, when it comes to identifying the male sexual health specialist, many have doubts between Urologist and Andrologist . Is there a difference between Andrologist and Urologist ?

 

This confusion in man is the result of bad information, prejudices and a good dose of neglect. A recent survey carried out on a sample of 20,000 men found that out of 10 people, only 2 turn to the specialist. With such uncomfortable data, you understand why the terms are confused or ignored! So let's try to give a place to these two professional figures, connected to each other.

 

Are you looking for an Urologist in London? First of all: Who is the Urologist?

 

Urology is the specialized medical and surgical branch that deals with treating and preventing problems and diseases of the male and female urinary tract, of adults and children, and of the male reproductive system. The organs involved include the kidneys, prostate, bladder, urethra, testes, penis and associated glands. Anyone with problems related to the areas listed above needs a Urologist .

 

What ailments does the Urologist treat?

 

Disorders that can be treated by urologists include those involving the kidneys, ureters (tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder), adrenal glands, bladder, and urethra (the tube that expels urine from the body from the bladder) . In males, a urologist can also treat conditions of the testes, epididymis, vas deferens, seminal vesicles, prostate, and penis.

The field of urology involves the medical management of conditions such as urinary tract infection and enlarged prostate. In addition, the urologist deals with the surgical management of conditions such as bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney stones and stress incontinence.

In cases of urinary tract cancers, urologists often consult with oncologists or radiation therapists. They may also need to work with nephrologists who deal with kidney disease, gynecologists who deal with the female reproductive system, and endocrinologists who deal with endocrine system conditions and hormonal disorders. Urologists can also collaborate with pediatric surgery and colorectal surgery professionals.

 

When to visit the urologist?

 

Very often the visit to the Urologist occurs in conjunction with a tangible problem, for example:

  • Pain and burning when urinating

  • Blood in the urine

  • Urinary incontinence, urine leakage

  • Frequent and urgent urge to urinate

  • Cloudy, foul-smelling urine

  • Weak urine stream or reduced dripping

  • Pelvic or kidney pain

  • Appearance of a bump in the testicle

In reality, the visit to the urologist is much more linked to the patient's age. In general, a visit is always recommended, even in the absence of symptoms, at the age of 20 and subsequently towards 40 years of age. On the other hand, one visit per year after 50 is considered essential!

 

Are you looking for an Andrologist in London? First of all: Who is the Andrologist?

 

The Andrologist is very often a Urologist who specializes in male sexual health. It generally treats conditions related to male fertility and sexual function. An andrologist for a male is similar to what a gynecologist is for a female. The deep knowledge of the anatomy of the male genital system and the skill in surgical therapy make him the most suitable specialist for solving problems related to sexual dysfunctions.

 

What ailments does the Andrologist treat?

 

As mentioned, the Andrologist deals with male health with regard to disorders of the genital system: testicles, penis, scrotum, vas deferens, epididymis, prostate, seminal vesicles and the bulb-urethral glands. The main disorders treated are:

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Premature ejaculation

  • The curved penis

  • The induratio penis Plastica

  • Male genital infections

  • Male infertility

  • The short frenulum

  • Phimosis

  • The small penis

  •  

When to visit the Andrologist?

 

Pain in the genitals, redness, itching, swollen testicles, trauma to the genitals, difficulty erectile or conceiving a child are excellent reasons to visit the Andrologist. You don't necessarily have to have a problem to go to the Andrologist, let's say that after the age of 50 an annual visit is recommended.

 

In conclusion

This explains the difference between Andrologist and Urologist , two specialists who, for different modalities and reasons, deal with the reproductive organ of man. Dr. Fabio Castiglione Urologist Andrologist in London currently exercises his profession as an Urologist / Andrologist surgeon at the prestigious Urology Center of the University College London Hospital and at the Dottorlondon Italian Clinic in London.
