Men's Health Q & A

What are the most common men’s health problems?

Just like women, men have unique health needs that require compassionate, knowledgeable care throughout their lifetime. When you have men’s health issues, it can impact your work, sexual performance, and a general sense of wellness. 

Because men tend to put off regular, preventive health care, they may be at higher risk of complications from conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and sexually transmitted disease (STDs).

Health conditions unique to men include:

  • Prostate enlargement
  • Prostate cancer
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Low testosterone

To prevent, diagnose, and treat these conditions, it’s essential that your health maintenance plan includes a regular focus on men’s health.
