THE UROLOGIST’S CLINIC

Men should not make light of problems with their genitalia. The earlier the cause of the symptoms can be established, the quicker they can be resolved. At Eira Hospital, you can quickly get a urologist’s assessment of your urination problem, your PSA value, your prostate enlargement, risk of prostate cancer or other problems that are typical for men. You can easily make an appointment online with the specialists listed below.

PROBLEMS WITH URINATION

The most important prostate diseases are 1) prostatic hyperplasia, 2) prostatitis and 3) prostate cancer. They all cause a more frequent need to urinate, poor urine flow, difficulties holding it in and, in some cases, urinary tract infections. It is important to examinate the cause of these symptoms at as early a stage as possible. Normally, the examination is carried out using palpation, ultrasound of the urinary tract and blood and urine samples.

Prostatitis is treated with antibiotics and prostatic hyperplasia with medication or surgery using either traditional slicing or lasers, which you can read more about below. Prostate cancer is treated using surgery, radiotherapy and hormone therapy. Eira Hospital is partnered with Docrates Cancer Center for the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of cancer. Cancer can be treated privately from beginning to end.

PSA

The most important prostate examinations is the measurement of PSA. PSA is only excreted by the prostate and the value rises when the prostate is inflamed, when the prostate is benignly enlarged and in cases of prostate cancer. The urologist can quickly give you an assessment of the significance of your PSA value; whether there are grounds for further examination such as taking a biopsy or if it is appropriate to simply monitor the PSA value. In some cases, the urine test U-PCA-3 is arranged.

THE MOST COMMON UROLOGICAL PROCEDURES

HOME QUICKLY FOLLOWING LASER SURGERY OF THE PROSTATE

Prostatic hyperplasia is a common age-related complaint among men. The problem causes a more frequent need to urinate and leads to night-time visits to the toilet and an acute need to visit the toilet. In the worst case, it can become so difficult to empty the bladder that the sufferer is affected by urinary retention.
Traditionally, prostatic hyperplasia has been operated on by slicing away the inside of the prostate, which presses against the urethra. A less bloody and even bloodless surgical method of removing prostate tissue has now been developed. This procedure makes it possible for the patient to return home the same evening.
At Eira, laser surgery is performed using the new GreenLight laser, which has been developed specifically for removing prostate tissue. The new model we use here, efficiently disintegrates the tissue and makes the procedure easier. Prior to the treatment with the green laser, the situation of the prostate should be investigated; is it a benign change in the prostate of potentially prostate cancer? The patient has to provide blood samples (PSA, creatinine) and a urine sample.
It is also beneficial to investigate the prostate, the area around the bladder and the kidneys using ultrasound. The quantity of residual urine is also measured in conjunction with this. If you have symptoms that affect your bladder function, you should make an appointment with the urologist. Together with the urologist, you can choose which form of treatment suits you.
An article containing more scientific research data about the GreenLight laser can be found at the website of the publication European Urology.
