There are a number of common health problems affecting both men and women, such as diabetes and hypertension. But, other issues occur only in men because they affect the male reproductive system. Some of these conditions include:
During your men’s health exam, which might be part of your annual comprehensive physical depending on your needs, your Concierge Medicine and Wellness care provider screens for all common male reproductive problems and conditions.
Your Concierge Medicine and Wellness care provider will tailor tests for your health needs and specific risk factors. You might have blood, urine, and other tests during the exam. Blood and urine tests can detect most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and can also identify other health problems like high cholesterol.
If you’ve had a comprehensive physical exam recently, you might not need some of these tests. Because your Concierge Medicine and Wellness provider handles all of your health care needs, they know you and your health history quite well, so they know exactly what’s needed to keep you healthy.
In addition to testing for health issues, your exam is also an ideal opportunity to discuss your concerns and health needs with your care provider. Don’t be afraid to discuss reproductive health concerns and needs. Your honesty helps your care provider effectively customize testing and treatment.
The Prostate Cancer Foundation recommends that you start screening at age 40 if you have a family history of prostate cancer, at age 45 if you’re African American, and at age 50 if you don’t have obvious prostate cancer risk factors.
These are only general guidelines, and the decision about prostate cancer screening is ultimately one you’ll make together with your Concierge Medicine and Wellness physician. Prostate cancer has a high survival rate when diagnosed and treated early, so your care provider focuses on prevention and early intervention to keep you healthy.
