Men's Health Q & A

What are some common men's health concerns?

Each person has unique health needs and risk factors, but all men are susceptible to certain health conditions. In the United States, the top five causes of death among adult men include:

  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Accidental injury
  • Respiratory disease
  • Stroke

Men are also vulnerable to certain conditions that affect their reproductive system, like testicular injury, testicular cancer, and prostate cancer. Unfortunately, many men are embarrassed to undergo testicular or prostate exams. 

Preventing these life-threatening medical conditions is possible. Early diagnosis and treatment are vital for protecting your health. That's why visiting Integrative Health DPC for routine health screenings is essential.

What kind of exams or tests should I receive?

All adults should see their doctor at least once a year for a complete physical exam. 

During this exam, your Integrative Health DPC provider starts by reviewing your medical history. They ask questions about your symptoms and current lifestyle to learn more about your medical needs. Next, they provide a comprehensive physical exam where they check your body for any new lumps, swelling, or rashes. They'll also listen to your heart and lungs, check your balance and blood pressure, and screen you for vision or hearing problems. If you need a prostate exam, the team can perform this in-house. 

Your provider may also order several blood tests. These tests can help assess organ function, screen for cancer, or check for infections. Blood tests can also check your cholesterol, blood sugar, and hormone levels. Hormone tests can help identify the cause of many common men’s health concerns, including weight gain and erectile dysfunction.

At the end of your men’s health visit, your provider reviews your test results and answers any lingering questions. At  Integrative Health DPC, patients are never rushed through their appointments. Instead, you'll have plenty of time to speak with your provider and discuss all your concerns.

What can I do to protect my health?

Putting off annual exams or regular health screenings can be tempting. But the best thing you can do to protect your health is to see your specialist regularly.

The  Integrative Health DPC team can help you manage any existing health problems and screen you for new ones. If you receive a new diagnosis, they can start the treatment process right away. The sooner you begin treatment, the better your chances for long-term health.
