Men’s Health

Too many men suffer in silence when faced with a health problem and put off seeing a doctor for as long as they can. In fact, men in Australia are far less inclined than women to take an active role in maintaining their health.

Whether your medical concerns are serious or not, the longer you put off a doctor’s appointment, the more detrimental it could be to your health. We understand that you need a men’s health clinic you can trust to provide the right information. Our professional team at Bellbowrie Family Practice can help.

Whether you have a health problem or just need some advice from a men’s health doctor, at Bellbowrie Family Practice, we always do our best to make you feel at ease when booking a doctor’s appointment with us. Our doctors are highly experienced in solving men’s health problems, and we guarantee confidentiality, so make a booking online or give us a call on 07 3202 5360.

Men’s Health Doctor Services

We offer a range of medical services at our men’s health clinic, and no problem is too big or too small for us. We have both male and female doctors on hand to offer advice and treatment for any men’s health ailment you may have. Whatever your concern is, we are committed to finding a solution. Our men’s health services include:

Prostate Health Checks

We offer prostate checks and screening for prostate cancer. With around 9 Australian men dying of prostate cancer each day, getting a check is a must for the over-50s. An enlarged prostate can affect your urinary and sexual function and be a precursor to prostate cancer, so ask us about treatments that can help.

Erectile Dysfunction

As you age, it often becomes harder to get or maintain an erection. Talking about it is not always easy, but our doctors are aware of your concerns and can provide solutions. Erectile dysfunction is common, with one in three men over the age of 50 suffering from this. It can also be an indicator of a more serious health condition such as heart disease or diabetes, so please visit our men’s health clinic if erectile dysfunction becomes a problem for you.

Depression

Depression is a common men’s health issue, with 1 in 8 men experiencing depression at some stage of their lives. Sometimes the signs of depression are hard to spot. But if you have noticed that you have lost interest in things you used to enjoy or you’re angry or irritable a lot, it might be time to talk to a men’s health doctor at our Bellbowrie clinic. Our professionals can help you get back on track.

Baldness

Male-pattern baldness is a common problem that can also be embarrassing. For men, hair loss usually occurs on the top and front of the head. If you are concerned about hair loss, talk to us to find out what you can do. Your men’s health doctor at Bellbowrie Family Practice can recommend available treatments to maintain or replace hair.

Penis and Testicle Health

When it comes to penis health, you worry when things aren’t right. Talking to your doctor about your concerns can help you find solutions and set your mind at rest. Some of the more common penis problems include penis swelling or injury, blood in semen, and penis irritation or allergies.

Men should also look out for testicle irregularities due to the risk of testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is a killer of Australian men, so talk to one of our doctors at Bellbowrie Family Practice about any concerns you have. Your doctor can give you advice on self-checks and symptoms to look out for.

Heart Health

Coronary heart disease affects twice as many men as women. If your coronary arteries become partially blocked, this could lead to pain in the chest also known as angina or at worst, lead to heart attacks or heart failure. The common risk factors include:

  • High saturated fat diet
  • Excessive drinking
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Not enough exercise

If you’ve been experiencing signs and symptoms commonly associated with heart disease or if you have any of the risk factors and would like to be checked for this condition, our team of professionals can arrange for testing and treatment for heart disease.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sometimes Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) have no symptoms. Even if you don’t have symptoms, you can still pass on STIs to others. An infection can also be harmful to your own long-term health. If you suspect that you might have a STI or are at risk, your doctor can arrange testing and treatment.

The most common types of STI’s among men include:

  • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
  • Genital Herpes
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Syphilis
