Preventive medicine

An important component of today’s medicine is prevention. Experience shows that symptoms only occur once a disease is advanced. The aim of preventive checks is to detect diseases at an early stage. Sensible early detection measures in male urology are currently recommended for prostate cancer and for tumours of the kidney, bladder and testicles.

If you have statutory German health insurance, you are entitled to the following preventive checks:
Early detection of cancer of the genitalia annually from the age of 45
Early detection of bowel cancer annually from the age of 50 (up to 54)
Endoscopy of the bowel from the age of 55 (twice at an interval of 10 years)

INDIVIDUAL HEALTH SERVICES

  • Determination of PSA (blood test)
  • Ultrasound examination of the kidneys and bladder
  • Rapid urine test for early detection of bladder cancer (UBC)

Statutory health insurance schemes do not offer preventive urological checks for women.

Consultations for young males

Consultations for young males were set up by the professional associations for urologists in collaboration with the German Society for Health Promotion [Gesellschaft zur Gesundheitsförderung] to promote the health of young people. Special consultations for young males with a urologist can be accessed under statutory health insurance to answer questions about physical development, sexuality and typical urological diseases.

Having problems starting a family

If you are struggling to start a family, it is always important for both partners to be examined. The man usually consults a urologist or an andrologist. Fertility problems are usually due to biological issues, and these are split roughly equally between men and women. A man’s infertility is frequently only discovered by examining a sperm sample. A detailed medical history is taken and the following fertility tests are then carried out:

  • palpation of testicles, epididymis, prostate and seminal glands
  • if required, an ultrasound examination is carried out on the genitalia, prostate and urinary tract
  • production of a spermogram
  • hormone examinations and genetic tests depending on findings

Andrology

Andrology is a specialism in medicine. This field essentially covers male reproductive functions and disorders. The urologist looks at hormone status, loss of fertility and a drop in sexual potency and libido.

INDIVIDUAL HEALTH SERVICES

  • Determination of PSA (blood test)
  • Determination of testosterone (hormone status)
  • Determination of SHBG hormone (hormone status)

Individual health services

Under German law, health insurance companies guarantee adequate treatment. We also offer sensible examinations for complete preventive male urological care. Preventive female urological care has not hitherto been on the spectrum of statutory health insurance companies’ services, but here too, sensible supplementary urological services can be selected and paid for privately.

These optional services will not be reimbursed by the statutory health insurance companies. These additional services will be invoiced in line with the ordinance governing doctors’ fees in Germany [Gebührenordnung für Ärzte – GOÄ]. We will be pleased to provide information for you and you can take time to make your decision.
