Sažetak
The aim of this study was to investigate, based on routinely collected data, the scope of family doctors work in the field
of men’s health. Based on the Croatian Health Service Yearbook in the period from 1995 to 2012, we collected the morbidity
data related to male urogenital disorders. The total number of urogenital disorders almost doubled, but the number of
diagnoses related to the men increased fourfold, mostly among the oldest patients. The number of prostate hyperplasia
increased fivefold, again among the oldest people. The morbidity from other male-specific diseases increased threefold,
mostly in the age group 7–19 years. In spite of the increase in the number of newly diagnosed cases of prostate cancer, the
percentage of the deaths stabilized after 2001. Men’s health problems are frequent sees and with an upward trend.We are
not sure if this means deterioration of men’s health, or just indicates the problem of »overdiagnosis«.
