Male sex organs are mostly outside the body (the genitals). This makes signs of certain STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) easier to spot. But STDs can also spread inside the body and damage the organs that allow you to father a child. This damage can sometimes cause sterility-meaning you won't be able to have kids! So pay attention to your body. Learn what's normal for you, and have any symptoms checked out.
In men, symptoms of an STD are often outside the body. But problems can happen inside, too. Common symptoms may include:
Discharge (fluid) or a drip from the penis or rectum. This can be yellow, white, green, or clear.
Burning or pain during urination.
Sores or blisters on or around the mouth, genitals, or rectum.
Lumps or bumps on the genitals.
Itching on or around the genitals.
Pain in the genitals or rectum.
Keep in mind: You may not have any symptoms. So get checked if you're at risk of STDs.

Dr. Marsha Bornt started seeing me when I was in my early twenties (20 years ago). After seeing many doctors, she was the 1st doctor to diagnose me with endometriosis. I went on to have many laparoscopies with her over the years. In my thirties I moved about 45-50 min away from Apple Hill, so I ended up seeing another doctor who performed another laparoscopy...
Staff was very friendly and professional. I had a few questions that the doctor was more than happy to answer for me. I got all that needed to be done in a very timely manner. I was very pleased with my visit. Trying to find a parking spot was very frustrating though. Arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your appointment.
I am always glad to meet with Dr. Bornt. She is very pleasant and makes sure she has answered all your questions or concerns. She is very thorough in her approach about your medical history . . .wants only the best for you as her patient.
