High blood pressure is a risk factor for both heart attacks and strokes, and can cause many issues such as leg ulcers, blindness, erectile dysfunction and kidney disease. High blood pressure can be caused by diet, lack of exercise, high salt intake and smoking. Our doctors will check your blood pressure, evaluate the causes and establish a care plan with the aim of lowering you risk of complications.
Erectile dysfunction is a very common condition characterised by an inability to acquire or maintain an erection during sexual activity. Erectile dysfunction can also be an early indicator of other serious health conditions, so it is important to discuss any issue you have with your doctor.
Premature ejaculation is one of the most common sexual health problems and affects men of all ages. The corresponding lack of confidence can be debilitating for relationships, causing anxiety and in some cases depression. Our doctors can discuss the options available to you, both medical and psychological.
Testicular Cancer Testing
Testicular cancer is one of the most common cancers found in younger men and a large majority of testicular cancers are found in the early stages. A lump on one testicle is usually the first sign of testicular cancer, as is a swollen or enlarged testicle.
Prostate Cancer Testing
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in Australia, usually affecting older men. Prostate cancer, classified as an adenocarcinoma is caused by normal semen secreting cells that mutate in cancerous cells. Prostate cancer can metastasis and spread through the body affecting other organs. Two tests are available, a digital rectal exam, and a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test.

If diagnosed, our doctors can explain the required treatment plan, and assess the need for any further investigations.
