From tabby to urologist


Ever wondered why the average guy usually goes to the urologist with his wife or daughter? Is it a matter of companionship, or do they need an interpreter in the tricky world of men's health? We'll cover this and many other men's health topics in the latest episode of 'Patient First', featuring urologist Professor Jacob Dobruch. We will be talking about the most important health issues that affect men - prostate cancer, kidney cancer, and bladder cancer.

Jokes aside, because after 40 many things change. The weight starts to rise, the strength declines and the front four makes its presence known. However, this is not a cause for concern, but a signal that it is worth visiting... a urologist. Prostate cancer is the most common malignancy in men in Poland, and loss of masculinity is not only a physical problem, but also an emotional one.

We ask our expert when kidney cancer should be treated by a urologist and when by a nephrologist. Which one is off the pill and which one is off the scalpel? How to monitor your health effectively and how not to be ashamed to talk about your problems, even when they seem difficult to discuss.

"Patient First" is a podcast that focuses on honesty and openness when talking about health, so listen to the latest episode on Wednesday 14 June now. Meet us in doctors' surgeries - on headphones!
