Urology for the GP

Relevance to General Practice

Common urological conditions seen by the GP include haematuria, benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostrate cancer and erectile dysfunction. GP management of each is increasingly important in the ageing Australian population. 

Evaluation of heamaturia in patients allows for the determination of safe treatment pathways. 
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) results in conditions such as urinary retention, macroscopic haematuria, urinary tract infection (UTI) or can be associated with prostate cancer. 
Prostrate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed caner in Australia with improving survival rates after detection. 
Erectile dysfunction (ED) often goes undetected and under treated. ED may be an early marker of CV disease. 

Screening and management protocols of these conditions will assure GP's of the best possible care for their ageing population group.
