Prostate Cancer Concerns

Prostate cancer is one of those things that many men put off having checked out. If you are concerned about your family history or if you have concerns about the risk of developing prostate cancer Mr Glackin can discuss with you the pros and cons of investigation for this common disease.
The initial step is to understand your concerns, your general health, your lifestyle and your outlook on life. Examination of the prostate and a simple blood test, prostate specific antigen (PSA), will help guide the investigation process. You may require an ultrasound scan to check prostate size and bladder emptying. An MRI scan of the prostate may be needed to assess for abnormality before considering a biopsy of the prostate under local anaesthetic.

Blood in the Urine

If you see blood in your urine you should have it checked out promptly, don’t ignore this important symptom. There are lots of potential causes of blood in the urine including kidney stones, urinary infection and most importantly cancer in the urinary system. Mr Glackin Consultant Urologist is an expert in the investigation of this common complaint. A few tests can go a long way to help diagnose the cause of the bleeding. The initial step is to understand your concerns, your general health, and your lifestyle. You may need an ultrasound scan or CT scan which can be arranged locally. Most patients will need a flexible telescope examination of the bladder which is available with Mr Glackin at the Ulster Independent Clinic and is very well tolerated under local anaesthetic.
