Men's Health Q & A

Sunny View Medical Center

What does comprehensive men’s health care mean?

Health care that supports men’s health is a collaborative effort that includes wellness care, prevention medicine, proper diagnostics and comprehensive treatment options. The term “men’s health” refers to a spectrum of services including:

  • Urology
  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • ENT
  • Gastroenterology
  • Orthopedics
  • Primary Care

It’s an all-inclusive care system designed with the needs of men in mind.

Does the men’s health service focus only on prostate health?

Prostate health is certainly a big part of this service. The risk of prostate problems increases as you grow older, too. The doctor will check for conditions like:

  • Prostatitis
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Prostate cancer

That’s not the only topic of conversation, though. The men’s health service is about providing men with full-service health care that includes everything from arteriosclerosis to mental health issues. The goal is to cover the basics along with conditions specific to men.

What are some gender-specific conditions the men’s health service handles?

Along with basic health care, the men’s health service does a regular screening of prostate and testicular health that will include a physical exam, a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen test. The doctors also treat low testosterone conditions that can lead to erectile dysfunction, low sex drive and mood swings. That is all part of the men’s health wellness service.

Is the men’s health service designed only for older men?

Men of all ages face health challenges, so no, it is for any man from teen to senior citizen. You don’t have to be old to have a men’s health problem. In fact, testicular cancer tends to strike men between the ages of 20-39 and the earlier it’s detected, the better the outcome.

What conditions tend to affect men more?

Generally speaking, men’s health services provide treatment for conditions that affect both genders like cardiovascular disease, colorectal cancer and diabetes. There are also the conditions that only men deal with like prostate and testicular cancer and erectile dysfunction. Prevention and wellness care will include PSA screening for prostate health, for example. Men’s health even screens for some conditions traditionally associated with women such as breast cancer.
