Andrology (from Ancient Greek: ἀνήρ, anēr, genitive ἀνδρός, andros, "man"; and -λογία, -logia) is the medical specialty that deals with male health, particularly relating to the problems of the male reproductive system and urological problems that are unique to men. It is also known as "The science of Men". It is the counterpart to gynaecology, which deals with medical issues which are specific to the female reproductive system. Andrology has only been studied as a distinct specialty since the late 1960s: the first specialist journal on the subject was the German periodical Andrologie (now called Andrologia), published from 1969 onwards.

Andrology is a medical discipline dealing with men’s health, and particularly in problems connected with the urinary and genital systems (infertility, sexual dysfunction, inflammations, neoplasmata). Gynecologists, urologists, endocrinologists deal with andrologic problems.
