Men's health at GenesisCare
Men’s Health at GenesisCare focuses typically on issues concerning the prostate, bladder and kidneys. Whether you have symptoms or are simply worried about possible issues, either using your own private medical insurance or opting to self-pay will ensure you have speedy access to our specialist men’s health consultants and, if needs be, any diagnostic tests and treatment you may require.
Our men's health clinics
Specialist private prostate clinic
Our specialist private prostate clinic provides a much faster route to a diagnosis. It is not uncommon to have to wait 8 to 10 weeks for a firm diagnosis once you have had the tests you need. However, Men’s Health at Genesis Care recognises this can be a worrying time and provides a less invasive approach that can reduce the time it takes to deliver a diagnosis to 2 weeks.
Our new diagnostic approach uses the latest multiparametric MRI technology. This allows for more conclusive results from the outset. A negative scan can rule out the need for a biopsy, so patients often avoid this invasive procedure altogether at this stage.
If the scan is positive and an abnormality is detected, the MRI results can then be used to guide a targeted biopsy. This technique provides highly accurate results, and is considered leading edge in prostate screening and diagnosis.
