Whether one likes to believe it or not, the fact remains that a woman’s reproductive health is discussed often. However, when it comes to men, it is something like a secret well kept under the carpet; it does not get discussed as the way it should have been. Why? Because men are considered to be strong and macho! However, unlike the general perception that exists in society, infertility affects about 15 percent of couples across the globe and as per a report, men are solely responsible for 20-30 percent of infertility cases. India, in recent times, has witnessed a northward surge in prostate problems and what’s alarming is the fact that the prostate is the second leading cause of cancer among males in cities like Delhi, Kolkata, Pune, and Thiruvananthapuram. These problems, if diagnosed at the early stage, can be treated.

Sharing his in-depth knowledge and expertise, Dr. Vaibhav Saxena says, “People, and especially males, often have the habit of not taking the disease and conditions that affect their urinary system seriously. What they do not realise is that this might affect them in the long run. Ignoring urinary problems might lead to causes like cancer, diabetes, kidney problems, and even fertility problems. As we grow older our body becomes weak and at that time treating disease can be more difficult. So, to prevent that it is necessary to understand the importance of urologists. Also, it is our duty as a society to lift the stigma that runs behind males consulting a urologist.”
