Common Health issues in Men
When reflecting on men’s health, the most common aspects that should be monitored include:
– Heart Health
Cardiovascular concerns are some of the most common conditions including atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. This can be prevented through regular exams and monitoring of your heart’s health and functioning.
– Prostate Cancer
1-in-6 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer. Thankfully, it can be detected early, and successfully treated when you stay up-to-date with your annual exams.
Living an unhealthy lifestyle and weight issues can lead to the development of type 2 diabetes. Being active and eating healthy is a beneficial way to avoid this condition.
– Erectile dysfunction(ED)

Monitoring Men’s Health
A basic exam for monitoring men’s physical health includes measuring height and weight, as well as other vital statistics such as heart rate and blood pressure. Additional check up procedures include:
– Penis exam
Your Male Clinic practitioner will check for any abnormal changes including: discoloration, lumps, or signs of infection, which can point toward the presence of sexually-transmitted diseases. And, if you are having issues with ED or premature ejaculation, a penis exam may provide some important clues.
– Testicular Exam
A testicular exam is important in detecting any changes, growths, or sore areas that may point to a larger issue.
– Hernia Exam
The lower abdominal wall in males is prone to weakness, so your dedicated practitioner will check the area to assess the risk of the intestines or bladder herniating that wall.
– Prostate Exam
Doctors can detect an enlarged prostate through a quick rectal exam.
