At Walker Street Doctors, we are very comfortable talking about men’s health matters including reproductive health, prostate screening, low testosterone and sexual health.
For men over aged 50 or 40 with a family history should talk to us about screening for prostate cancer using the PSA blood test as part of their annual health check. Men should make an individual informed decision regarding testing based on the latest available benefits and potential harms of testing and subsequent treatment for prostate cancer.

All STI’s can cause disease without producing symptoms. Different populations and situations will require different asymptomatic screening recommendations. Our doctors are skilled in diagnosing and managing infection. For further information, visit www.sti.guidelines.org.au
