Men's Health Q & A
What is men’s health?
Men’s health refers to specialized preventive care and treatments that cater to the varied health needs of men. It’s a critical branch of medicine since men pay less attention to their health than women. Men are also more likely to:
- Abuse alcohol
- Smoke tobacco
- Neglect regular medical checkups and care
- Make risky or unsafe decisions
What types of health problems do men face?
Many health conditions affect men exclusively, including prostate cancer and low testosterone levels.
With regular checkups and screenings, these conditions and others can be detected early and treated effectively. It’s essential for all men to pay attention to their health and to undergo regular screenings.
What are the available men’s health services?
The Essencia Family Practice and Immediate Care Clinic team provides a variety of men’s health services, including:
Testosterone replacement therapy
Testosterone is a hormone in men’s bodies that helps maintain — among other things — muscle mass, bone density, and sex drive. When testosterone levels dip, it can cause depression, physical changes, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction.
Testosterone replacement therapy refers to a series of injections that help balance out your testosterone levels and restore you to optimal health.
Erectile dysfunction treatment
Not being able to get or sustain an erection can be frustrating for you and your partner. In many cases, lifestyle changes can help dramatically improve your erectile dysfunction, which is often linked to your overall health.
Your doctor can discuss your diet and exercise habits with you, and help you make changes that improve your overall health and, in turn, can help improve your erectile dysfunction.
Premature ejaculation treatment
Similar to erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation can affect both you and your partner. It can also cause self-confidence issues.
Your doctor discusses your lifestyle habits and may ask you questions to pinpoint if stress or behavior problems are contributing to your premature ejaculation issues.
A combination of topical anesthetics, medication, behavioral techniques, and counseling can help.
Prostate cancer screenings
Maintaining regular doctor visits to screen for prostate is a key component of men’s health. With early detection, both are treatable.
