  • Inflammatory diseases of the male reproductive system are mostly of infectious,fungal or parasitic nature and are caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi or helminths;
  • When there is a general weakening of the male’s immune system, infection may spread to the urogenital tract through lymphatic vessels and affect urethra, prostate gland, vas deferens, testicles;
  • In order to maintain his health every man should undergo examination of his prostate gland (sometimes it is also called “second man’s heart”) and tests for venereal infections twice a year.

Such examination is required because quite often prostate gland diseases and sexually transmitted infections may progress without any evident symptoms and can be detected only when undergoing regular diagnostic examinations.
