Men's Health

Why should I be concerned about men’s health?

In general, men are more likely to engage in risky behaviors that endanger their health, such as smoking, and yet see their doctors less frequently than women do. And even though men may perceive themselves as being the stronger sex, they’re more likely to suffer from chronic conditions and other health problems such as:

  • Kidney stones
  • Gout
  • Aortic aneurysms
  • Bladder cancer
  • Inguinal hernias
  • Emphysema
  • Duodenal ulcers
  • Alcoholism

Men also have male-specific health issues related to their reproductive system, such as prostate enlargement and cancer. When you get annual exams and regular health care, your doctor has a chance to catch serious conditions in their early stages, when they’re easier to treat. 

How can I take charge of my health if I’m a man?

One of the best ways to keep yourself on the road to good health is to schedule and keep annual exams at Midwest Regional Health Services, even if you feel healthy. You’re assigned a personal physician who coordinates your care among other team members. During your annual exams, your provider:

  • Conducts a physical exam
  • Tests your heart and lungs
  • Tests your blood and urine
  • Gives or recommends screening tests
  • Takes a complete medical history
  • Asks about symptoms and problems
  • Tests for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • Screens for mental health conditions

Your team may recommend lifestyle changes that could improve your health, such as:

  • Quitting smoking
  • Losing weight
  • Drinking alcohol in moderation
  • Becoming more active

You can also use the Hale Health app to keep in touch with your health care team between appointments or when you have a health-related question.

What are some men’s health issues that I can get treatment for?

In addition to annual general physicals, screenings, and treatments for any acute or chronic illnesses, the Midwest Regional Health Services team also offers services specifically for men. You can see your doctor for:

  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Mood changes or insomnia
  • Trouble urinating
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle loss
  • Hair loss

If you’re suffering from the symptoms of an age-related decline in testosterone, your team may recommend testosterone replacement therapy.
