Urology is the field of medicine dealing with diseases and problems relating to the kidneys, bladder and ureters, and with male health issues. One of the male organs most commonly treated is the prostrate, whose benign enlargement is among the most frequent urological conditions.
The range of treatment available to treat serious urogenital problems extends from medication to surgery. One standard procedure is known as transurethral resection of the prostate, which involves removing tissue using an endoscope. The HoLEP laser technique is also well-established in prostate surgery. It allows tumours to be treated and tissue samples to be taken.
Unfortunately, prostate cancer is a widespread disease all over the world. In Germany it is even the most common form of cancer contracted by men. However, the sooner the cancer is diagnosed, the better the chances are of it being cured, which is why it is so important to visit a urologist for regular check-ups.
