I'm publishing this article to ensure my readers know what to expect during a visit(s) in a urologist's office. I briefly discussed this in an earlier post. The first visit will comprise various tests.
The first thing many offices do is collect the urine sample. This is used to determine things such as UTI (Urinary tract infection) and also as a source of bacteria found in the urine. You can also take laser therapy for BPH by booking an appointment with experts now.

Urine samples can be used to check for any other ailments too. The issue of urine samples when it comes to checking for prostate-related disorders(especially prostate cancer) lies in the fact that bacteria can be found in the prostate.
In actual 95 percent of urine samples reveal no bacteria present in the urine. Even although this is true, nearly every urologist will still diagnose patients as having urinary tract infections. since it is hidden in the prostate.
If you're able to provide the urine sample, the next exam will likely be something I've also discussed, which is the digital rectal exam(DRE). It's an exam that's common in the screening of prostate-related ailments. The doctor will be inserting his index or fingers into the rectum.
This permits him/her to feel the prostate. The examination will last approximately 30-45 seconds or less. The doctor will check for any abnormalities in the prostate.
