4 THINGS A CLINICIAN CAN DO IN A SINGLE PATIENT VISIT TO APPROPRIATELY EVALUATE THE PROSTATE HEALTH

Your doctor can evaluate your prostate health in a single visit by carrying out the following:
1) HISTORY TAKING: YOU WILL BE ASKED CERTAIN QUESTIONS WHICH WILL EXPOSE POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS OF PROSTATE PROBLEMS
2) EXAMINATION: DIGITAL RECTAL EXAMINATION IS KEY- THE DOCTOR WILL INTRODUCE A GLOVED FINGER, WELL LUBRICATED,INTO YOUR RECTUM THROUGH THE ANUS TO FEEL THE PROSTATE
3)PROSTATE ULTRASOUND SCANNING: THIS WILL SHOW AN IMAGE OF THE PROSTATE TO DETERMINE ITS REGULARITY, SIZE, ECHOTEXTURE AND VOLUME.PRE AND POSTVOIDAL URINE VOLUME CAN ALSO BE MEASURED.
4)PROSTATE SPECIFIC ANTIGEN TEST. A BLOOD SAMPLE IS DRAWN TO DETERMINE THIS IN THE LABORATORY.

WHEN ALL THESE ARE DONE,THE DOCTOR CAN MOST CERTAINLY GIVE YOU A RELIABLE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR PROSTATE HEALTH.
