Men’s Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health refers to the specific health issues that men face. Many of these services center on reproductive health. However, there are also numerous general health issues that men experience at high rates, so your men’s health visit might also touch upon those areas of health and wellness.

Your men’s health visits are customized to meet your specific needs. As you age, those needs will shift and change. As with all health services, the best way to get the most out of your visits is to be as open with your physician as possible.

What are some common men’s health issues?

Researchers find that men are significantly less likely than women to seek medical care when they notice a problem.

Some of the general health issues that many men struggle with include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • Respiratory disease

Some of the reproductive health issues that men might experience include:

  • Infertility
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Low testosterone
  • Prostate enlargement or cancer

Working with a trusted physician is an important part of taking care of your general health needs as well as specific men’s health issues.

What are some signs of hormonal imbalance in men?

As you age, your body’s production of hormones naturally declines. This can cause several changes in the way your body feels and functions. Understanding the signs of hormonal imbalance helps you know when to seek assistance.

Some indications of hormonal imbalance in men include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Hair loss
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Enlarged breast tissue
  • Brain fog
  • Loss of bone mass (osteoporosis)
  • Weight gain

 

If you experience these changes, hormone replacement therapy can help. This treatment delivers supplemental hormones to restore optimal hormonal balance. It can take some time to achieve the right level of supplementation, but your provider will work closely with you during your men’s health visits as you move through the process.

If you have questions about these or any other men’s health issues, book a visit at Prime Healthcare of Cypress today. Online scheduling is a convenient option, or you can always call the office to speak with a friendly member of the administrative staff regarding appointment availability.
