Male Infertility - Urology and Andrology

Urology is the medical discipline that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the urinary and reproductive systems of humans. Urologist diagnoses and treats sexual dysfunction (decreased potency and sexual attraction, lack or instability of erection, premature ejaculation), inflammation of the testicles, head of the penis, prostate (prostatitis), prostate adenoma, various genital infections. Andrology is concerned with men's health, particularly the problems of the male reproductive system, sexual dysfunction and urological problems. Andrology is literally “The study of man” (Greek: andros - man). Andrology is the male counterpart of gynecology.
