Healthy prostate preventive program

Healthy prostate preventive program

For all men who are aware of the importance of early detection of prostate disease. Why wait for this little sex gland to make your life miserable?


The prostate is the male sex gland that lies under the bladder and surrounds part of the urethra. Its job is to produce the fluid that carries the sperm. A healthy prostate is smooth to the touch, elastic, painless, and the size of a walnut. But it tends to become enlarged over the years, often causing various problems.

Do you often wake up at night because you need to go to the toilet? Do you notice that your urine stream is weak? Are you feeling tired and unable to urinate? Do you have the feeling that you have not completely emptied your bladder? Do you feel discomfort in your pelvic area? Do you have a family history of urinary tract problems?

Problems caused by an enlarged prostate are unpleasant, but they can also be a sign of more serious conditions. The two most common problems are benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer, which is one of the most common cancers in men.

Timely and regular urological preventive examinations for men are just as important as gynaecological examinations for women. As there are no urinary tract check-ups in Slovenia, it is up to you to take action. Even if you don’t have any problems with urination, don’t delay in getting a prostate check-up, as early detection can increase the chances of successful treatment.

We have designed a special preventive program that includes key examinations to check how healthy your prostate is. It is aimed at all men, regardless of age.

Specialistic urological examination with a final opinion

Uroflow – urine flow measurement

Laboratory analyses

BLOOD ANALYSIS: sample collection, haemogram with a differential blood count, kidney condition indicators (urea, creatinine with eGFR, uric acid), blood sugar – glucose.

URINE ANALYSIS: basic analysis, sediment and Uricult.


Total PSA (specific antigen for prostate cancer)

Ultrasound examination of the urinary tract (kidney, bladder, prostate (men))

Prostate micro-ultrasound, transrectal (NEW in Slovenia!)

Micro-ultrasound of the prostate is a new diagnostic method, which is only offered by us in Slovenia. Micro-ultrasound offers up to 300 times better image resolution compared to conventional prostate ultrasound. A normal ultrasound of the prostate only shows the size of the prostate, but a micro-ultrasound can show what the tissue is like and whether there are any lesions – this is how a urologist can see the size, shape, and structure of the prostate in detail.

Frequent additional examinations and procedures

PSA, free

Under the Slovenian ZDDV-1 Act the VAT (Value Added Tax) is not charged for medical services.
