What is men’s health?
Men’s health focuses on the unique health needs of men, especially as they get older. Common issues that affect men’s health include:
- Heart disease
- Colon cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Low testosterone
- Erectile dysfunction
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
Many conditions that affect men’s health are preventable. Routine preventive care at Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness can lower their risk of developing diseases and disorders that affect men’s long-term physical and mental health.
What men’s health services are available?
Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness offers a wide range of services that focus on men’s health. These services include:
- Annual physicals
- Blood pressure monitoring
- Colon cancer screenings
- Prostate cancer screenings
- Mental health evaluations
- Hormone testing
The team also reviews men’s risk factors for certain diseases. These factors include a poor diet, lack of exercise, tobacco, and excessive alcohol use. A family history of chronic health issues increases your risk of developing health problems like heart disease, prostate cancer, and colon cancer.
What can I expect during a men’s health consultation?
During your initial men’s health consultation, the Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness team reviews your personal and family medical histories. They do a complete physical exam, noting important details about your health, including your:
- Blood pressure
- Heart rhythm
- Lung function
- Body temperature
- Reflexes and joint flexibility
You might need blood work to evaluate your hormone levels and identify high cholesterol, diabetes, and other conditions. Depending on your medical history, your doctor might order further diagnostic tests. Your doctor will discuss your diet and lifestyle with you, identifying issues that could affect your health.
If your physical exam reveals problems you need to address, the Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness team will customize a treatment plan that effectively manages your health and prevents long-term complications. They can suggest changes that you can make to improve your health and lower your risk of developing chronic health problems.
Men are far less likely than women to see their doctor regularly. This drives up the number of cases of preventable disease in men. To schedule a men’s health consultation and live a long, healthy life, call Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness today or book an appointment online.
