Men's Health Q & A

What are the common men’s health issues?

As a men’s health expert, Dr. Roberts diagnoses and treats a wide range of men’s health issues. Some of the prevalent conditions include:

  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Elevated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels
  • Prostatitis 
  • Prostate cancer
  • Low testosterone
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Urethritis
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)

If you find blood in your urine or semen or have pain in your lower abdomen or testicles, make an appointment with Dr. Roberts to determine what’s causing your symptoms. 

How are men’s health issues diagnosed?

Dr. Roberts provides comprehensive consultations, physical exams, and testing to diagnose the men’s health issue causing your symptoms. Ideally, you should have routine checkups, even if you feel healthy. Many health conditions don’t cause symptoms in their early stages.

If you have symptoms of a men’s health condition, Dr. Roberts talks to you about your symptoms, overall health, and lifestyle. She performs a physical exam and orders additional lab work, including blood tests and urinalysis. Other diagnostic tests include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Biopsy
  • Cystoscopy
  • CAT scan
  • Urodynamic studies
  • Post-void residual tests

However, Dr. Roberts highly recommends having regular physicals and health screenings to catch men’s health issues before they cause symptoms and disrupt your health.

What men’s health screenings should I have?

You need different health screenings at different ages. For example, before you turn 40, you should have blood pressure screenings at least every two years and have your cholesterol checked every five years. 

However, as you age, your risk of men’s health conditions increases. You should have prostate cancer and colorectal cancer screenings. 

Talk to Dr. Roberts about your personal and family medical history. She assesses your risk and provides advice on how frequently you should have these health screenings. 

How are men’s health issues managed?

Dr. Roberts provides state-of-the-art treatments for men’s health issues. Depending on your needs, she creates a customized treatment plan to address your concern and restore your health. For example, if you have BPH, she offers UroLift® as well as medical and surgical treatment options. 

Dr. Roberts also offers lifestyle advice to help optimize your health and reduce your risk of acute and chronic health issues.
