CONGENITAL CURVATURE OF THE PENIS
Congenital curvature of the penis is a condition that affects men from birth. The condition causes curvature of the penis during erection and is often noticed from an early age.
Ejaculatory dysfunction occurs when a man has a problem properly ejaculating his semen, either ejaculating too soon, too late, back into his own bladder or not at all. These situations can result in poor sexual satisfaction by the man and his partner, ineffective reproduction and emotional trauma.
An Epidydyma Cysts is a fluid-fill sac that develops in the epididymis which is a small tube located near to the upper testicle.
ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (IMPOTENCE)
Erectile dysfunction or impotence is a problem that affects 1 in 2 men at some point in their life. It is an issue that makes it difficult to either experience an erection or maintain one. This can lead to a wide range of issues such as psychological issues, self-confidence and the inability to have sexual intercourse.

A hydrocele is a form of swelling in the scrotum whereby fluid collects in the thin sheath that surrounds a testicle. While this is common in babies, it is something that older boys and men can develop following inflammation and injury within the scrotum.
Our clinic is linked to the national-access multi-specialty Klinefelter’s Disease clinic, which oversees the complex needs of men with genetic conditions which result in fertility problems, low testosterone and potentially many other issues. This is not as rare as we think, with 1:660 born with this condition.
Although testosterone levels fall as men age, the decline is steady at less than 2% a year from around the age of 30 to 40, and this is unlikely to cause any problems in itself. This has been somewhat misleadingly described as the ‘Andropause’ although in contrast to the menopause, there is no sudden cessation of hormones.
Infertility is defined as the failure to conceive after one year of unprotected sexual intercourse. Approximately 15% of couples attempting their first pregnancy meet with failure. In about 50% of couples seeking treatment, the infertility will be caused by a problem in the male.
Penile cancer is a rare form of cancer that mostly affects men over the age of 50. The very name penile cancer can set off alarm bells in the mind of men due to it occurring in such a sensitive area.
Peyronie’s Disease is a painful condition that affects the male penis. The condition occurs when scar tissue inside the penis causes it to curve during an erection. Peyronie’s Disease can be very painful and men can experience a significant bend in their erect penises.
The testicles are a vital part of the male reproductive system. It is there that sperm and testosterone are produced. Both are major elements in male sexual development.
Testicular cancer is treatable and there are high success rates in those men who have been diagnosed with the disease. Experts state that testicular cancer is a rare form of the disease when compared to other forms of cancer and can be treated effectively.
Testicle pain (testicular pain) is pain that occurs in or around one or both testicles. Sometimes testicle pain actually originates from somewhere else in the groin or abdomen, and is felt in one or both testicles (referred pain).
An undescended teste in uncommon in males, yet when it does occur it can be fixed in most cases. Undescended testes occur mostly in newborn babies and the condition can be identified at birth.
