Male urology


The prostate gland (normally about the size of a chestnut) lies just beneath the bladder. The urethra (water pipe) runs through the middle of the prostate. The main function of the prostate is during a man's reproductive life. It produces fluid containing chemicals which help sperm with fertilisation.

Prostate problems are very common. Around 1 in 5 men will develop prostatic symptoms and 1 in 4 will develop prostate cancer, now the most frequent cancer in men.

Our urology team diagnose and treat a range of prostate problems, both benign (non-cancerous) and cancerous.
