Erectile Dysfunction - Diagnosis

Overview | Causes | Diagnosis | Treatment | FAQ

It is important for the urologist to take a complete history of the patient's sexual difficulty, including factors that may make things better or worse. A physical exam sometimes reveals a problem that could contribute to erectile dysfunction. Laboratory evaluation, including blood and urine testing, can scan for some of the diseases that cause the condition. Specialized testing may be indicated, though these tests are not likely to affect the treatment decision.
