8 Causes of Testicular Pain Explained by a Urologist
8 Causes of Testicular Pain Explained by a Urologist

Testicular pain is a sensitive topic, as not all men are open to talk about such a personal issue.

However, as there has been an increase in sexual awareness when it comes to urological diseases, more men are willing to come forward when they have these issues.

The testicles, commonly referred to as the "family jewels", are important and delicate organs that should not be ignored when one feels any pain or discomfort down south.

There are many different conditions that cause testicular pain. Worryingly, the symptoms are so similar that it is crucial for one to head to the doctor.

In this article, I will discuss the 8 different types of conditions that may cause pain in the testicles.

The Ultimate Guide to Seeing a Urologist in Singapore (2020)
The Ultimate Guide to Seeing a Urologist in Singapore (2020)

Most of us don’t realise the importance of our urological health.

Your urinary tract filters waste from your bloodstream and expels them from your body along with excess fluid as urine, so a healthy urinary tract is vital for maintaining your physical well-being. 

Having healthy kidneys, which are part of the urinary tract, helps to:

  • prevent metabolic waste products from building up
  • remove excess fluids in your body
  • maintain balance of electrolytes
  • produce hormones that help regulate blood pressure
  • make red blood cells
  • keep bones strong

As our urinary tract plays such important functions, we cannot afford to take it for granted.

However, urinary tract infections (UTIs) can still happen even if you have done all that you could do to prevent it. You may then start wondering:

  • Who should I see?
  • At what point should I see them?
  • What happens when I see them?

In this article, I will be covering all your doubts about seeing a urologist. Hopefully, after reading this article, you can make the most informed decision when it comes to your urological health!

Managing Benign Prostate Hyperplasia & Peyronie’s Disease: A Urologist Discusses
Managing Benign Prostate Hyperplasia & Peyronie’s Disease: A Urologist Discusses

As a man gets older, he may experience symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is a condition when the prostate gland is enlarged and causes difficulty with urination. 

Peyronie's disease is a different urological condition that typically affects men above the age of 40, but is also present in men under that age. The condition usually presents as penile curvature associated with a palpable lump.  

Thankfully, there are medical treatments for both these conditions in Singapore. Dr Ronny Tan, a consultant urologist in Singapore, recently answered DoctorxDentist reader questions regarding these male urological conditions and how they are managed in Singapore. Here are his key pointers.
