A Urologist is a physician who specializes in diseases of the urinary tract and the male reproductive system. This can include diseases affecting the bladder, kidneys, adrenal glands, along with the prostate, seminal vesicles and testes in men. Urologists are also the front line in diagnosing and treating prostate cancer, which is the most prevalent cancer found in men, following skin cancer.
