Men's Health Q& A

What are common men’s health issues?

Although heart disease and cardiovascular health issues like hypertension, high cholesterol, and stroke are all common health issues for men, you should be aware of a wide range of issues and work with your doctor to avoid including:

  • Diabetes
  • Liver disease
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia — an enlarged prostate Prostate cancer
  • Other cancers including skin, colon, and lung
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases
  • Depression Alcoholism

Many of these conditions are easily treated and controlled when diagnosed in their early stages. In some cases, with lifestyle modifications, you can even reduce your risk of these conditions. At CareOne Internal Medicine and Primary Care, the team focuses on preventive care to improve and maintain your health, reducing your risk of these — and other — diseases and health conditions.

What preventive health screenings do I need?

Many health conditions don’t cause symptoms in their early stages, and health screenings are the only way to identify and diagnose them. The CareOne Internal Medicine and Primary Care team offers a comprehensive range of preventive health screenings, including:

  • PSA levels
  • Testosterone and other hormone levels
  • Cancer screenings
  • Blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • STD testing

Routine health screenings are just part of the preventive healthcare services you can expect as part of a routine men’s health assessment.

How can I stay healthy?

Healthy habits can prevent many of the common health conditions that affect men from becoming serious problems. Preventive health screenings are often the only way to diagnose and treat a health issue before it becomes more severe and threatens your overall health and wellbeing.

To stay feeling your best, you should:

  • Undergo routine medical exams and screenings, including visits with specialists
  • See a doctor if you’ve noticed any concerning changes to your health
  • Get regular physical activity and eating a healthy diet
  • Be aware of your emotions and how you respond to them, and seek behavioral health care for your mental wellness
  • Abstain from tobacco and drink alcohol in moderation, if at all
