Gonadal Disease

Understanding Gonadal Disease

Gonadal disease refers to any disorder affecting the gonads or primary reproductive organs. These diseases can interfere with the normal production of hormones and gametes, leading to a range of reproductive and developmental issues.

Common Types of Gonadal Diseases

Among the most common gonadal diseases are Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) in women, and Klinefelter Syndrome in men - both characterized by abnormal hormone levels. Other conditions include Turner Syndrome, affecting only women, and varicoceles in men, which can lead to fertility problems.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

Gonadal disease symptoms vary depending on the specific condition and individual. Common signs may include infertility, irregular menstrual cycles, changes in secondary sex characteristics, and hormonal imbalance. Diagnosis usually involves blood tests, imaging tests, and in some cases, genetic testing.
