    Hi, Came

    Welcome to WebM.D.! Are you having sexual problems? Urinary tract problems? Problems with your penis, or srotum? If no, there is little reason to see an Urologist. If however, you just want reassurence, go see one. Have your P.C.P. give you a referall. Peace of mind is always best medicine.

    Good luck!!!

    Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
    Usually we recommended to get a baseline prostate exam and PSA blood test starting at about age 40. To find a good urologist call your local medical society and they can refer you to somebody who was practicing in your area in good standing. Then go on to the state medical board to make sure that this doctor does not have a lot of complaints for lawsuits against them.
