The most common form of testosterone replacement therapy is a gel that you must apply to your skin every day. Although the gel can be messy and a bit inconvenient to use, it is a simple and effective choice that works well for many men. However, if the gel isn’t a suitable option for you, there are other types of andropause treatment available at clinics in London. One of these is the testosterone replacement implant.
Kidney stones are a common problem that can cause severe pain. Kidney stones can usually be diagnosed quickly through scans and haematuria investigations and various treatment options are available if they can’t be passed naturally.
Bladder cancer care in the UK is currently suffering from a lack of both research funding for new treatments and awareness of the condition. The symptoms of bladder cancer are often being missed or ignored because people don’t realise that they could be signs of a serious condition. Even when people do seek help, they are often being left waiting to start treatment for bladder cancer. A new campaign to raise awareness of the condition has now been launched by Fight Bladder Cancer (UK) to address these issues, with the Kelpies statue in Falkirk being specially lit up in orange to highlight the problem in Scotland. Although greater awareness is needed across the UK, the problem is particularly severe in Scotland, where the five year survival rate is just 34%, compared to 48% for the country as a whole.

Some people believe that spending too much time cycling can increase the risk of erectile problems and prostate enlargement. However, a recent survey has revealed that this may be nothing more than a myth. Cycling doesn’t appear to have any overall negative effects on men’s health. Men who spend a lot of time on a bike are no more likely to need erectile dysfunction or prostate enlargement treatment. Read More

Men do not go through the same inevitable changes in midlife as women do, but declining hormone levels can still have a big impact in later life for many men. Androgen deficiency in men can cause symptoms that have just as big an impact on everyday life as the female menopause. It is therefore important to seek help if you think that you are affected by testosterone deficiency. Read More
Chemotherapy is often recommended as part of treatment for bladder cancer. Although the treatment can be given in several different ways, one of the most common options is intravesical chemotherapy. This means that the chemotherapy drugs will be given into your bladder through a catheter.
Cystitis is a very common condition for women and unfortunately, it can often keep coming back. We don’t always know why some women experience cystitis and UTIs more often than others, but there are a few things you can do to reduce the chances of another infection.
Most women will have a urinary tract infection at least once in their lives, but these infections are particularly common during pregnancy. Although most UTIs are mild and they will usually go away by themselves, it is best to see a doctor for urine infection treatment if you are pregnant.
