Providing care for men across the lifespan.
While sexual health checks can feel uncomfortable, awkward or embarrassing, they are important for maintaining your health and wellbeing, and are a normal part of your doctor’s job. Sexual health checks can involve tests for sexually transmitted infections (STI), as well as discussions around contraception, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, sex and porn addiction, and your rights in sexual relationships. Regular sexual health checks are recommended for all people who are (or planning to be) sexually active, but are especially important if you suspect an STI; if you’ve had unsafe sex (including vaginal, oral, and anal sex); if a condom broke or fell off during sex; if you or your partner have more than one sexual partner; if you have shared injecting equipment; or if you are beginning a new sexual relationship.
Reproductive health checks are important for maintaining your health and wellbeing. Reproductive health checks are recommended for any couples trying to conceive and may involve prostate cancer screening, sperm analysis, and scrotal self-examination. In addition to these services, our onsite accredited dietitian, Eleni Zeniou, specialises in fertility nutrition, and can work with you to develop an individualised, evidence-based plan
Skin Checks and Excisions
Men are twice as likely to be diagnosed with skin cancer than women, and Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Regular skin checks for detection of any precancerous or cancerous lesions are therefore of high importance for men of all ages. All our doctors are qualified to conduct full skin checks from head to toe, examining any lesions of concern and discussing risk factors, family history and treatment options. Most of our doctors can do basic excision procedures, and some are qualified for more complex cases. Our services include skin biopsies, cryotherapy, non-surgical treatments, and mole removal, as well as skin cancer surgery and treatment support.
Iron is a nutrient that plays many important roles in your body, including keeping you healthy and full of energy. A blood test is used to check your iron levels and determine if you are eligible for an iron infusion and rule out reversible causes. Appointments for iron infusions require a consultation to assess your suitability and consent for the procedure. The procedure is then conducted as a separate appointment and can last for up to 45 minutes.
