Patients with urological and men's health problems will find the care they need with Mr Mark Feneley at his urology office in London. The office is based on the prestigious Harley Street, where investigations and treatments are offered for urological conditions including cancers, blood in the urine, urinary tract infections, bladder disorders, and in men prostate enlargement, PSA testing, and men's health problems.
Mr Mark Feneley has over 15 years' experience as a consultant urological surgeon and specialist in urological cancer. Patients are seen in his urology office in London by appointment for investigations, diagnosis and treatment. This includes assessment of urological symptoms, treatment of bladder cancer and prostate disease, screening for urological cancer, treatment for erectile dysfunction and low testosterone.
Bladder cancer often presents with blood in the urine, but it can be intermittent and it may not always be visible. Other symptoms may include bladder irritation or discomfort, burning on passing urine, urinary frequency and urgency.
Urinary tract infections (UTI) usually occur when external bacteria enter the urinary tract via the urethra. They may affect the bladder (known as cystitis) or kidneys (known as pyelonephritis), causing troublesome and sometimes recurrent symptoms or complications.
Prostate cancer is commonly first suspected with a blood test, called Prostate-Specific Antigen. If this is abnormal, specialist investigations may be required, including a prostate biopsy. Screening for prostate cancer has particular benefits and risks that need to be carefully considered on an individual basis.
Testosterone is required in many different tissues for many diverse functions. In men, declining levels with age can contribute to significant symptoms and conditions affecting quality of life and general health, as well as sexual dysfunction.
From the outset, Mr Feneley put me at ease with his friendly and professional manner. Having been on medication for some time for an enlarged prostate, his advice was never to rush into having an operation, but to see how things developed. When eventually we agreed that the time was right for surgery, he was very reassuring and answered all my questions (some by Email) patiently and fully, appreciating that for me this was a new and concerning experience. The care he gave me both before and after the operation was exemplary, with follow up consultations to ensure everything had gone according to plan. Mr Feneley is a first class surgeon with a caring and friendly manner, and one couldn't wish for better.
Mark treated me as a person with a problem, with which he had the expertise to help, and in which I had a part to play. The term "empowered patient" is misused too often, but that really was my experience, and I am confident that he has the ability to draw that line of balance in just the right place for each patient with whom he works.
