Men's Health Q&A
What are some common men’s health needs?
Men and women have different health needs, and understanding those needs is essential to supporting optimal health and avoiding disease. When it comes to general health issues, men are susceptible to heart disease, stroke, cancer, injuries, and chronic lower respiratory disease.
Men’s health also encompasses all aspects of your reproductive system. Some of the issues that a great urologist can help you with include problems related to:
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) or an enlarged prostate
- Prostate cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Bladder cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Erectile dysfunction
- Sexual health
- Kidney stones
- Hormonal imbalance
If you have questions or concerns about changes or symptoms in any of these areas, reach out to the Spokane Urology team to book an exam.
What can I do to prevent a men’s health problem?
The most important step you can take to protect yourself against disease is to work closely with a men’s health specialist. This includes sharing the full details of your personal and family health history, which enables your doctor to order the right screenings for your specific set of needs.
You can also reduce your risk of disease by embracing a healthy diet with a strong emphasis on lean protein and lots of fruits and vegetables. Getting plenty of exercise is also important. If you experience significant stress or sleep disruption, find ways to improve those issues to give your body the support it needs to thrive.
Routine health screenings are also critical and help detect signs of serious illness in the early stages when treatment is most effective. Be sure to schedule annual exams and take your doctor’s advice when it comes to which tests are right for your age and overall health.
Why is sexual health an important part of men’s health?
Many men and women think about their sex lives as something separate from their general health. In reality, a fulfilling sex life is an integral part of your overall health and wellness. This is an area of your life that deserves dedicated care.
As you move through the phases of life, your body produces fewer hormones. This can cause a wide range of changes, many of which affect your sex drive and ability to get and keep an erection.
There is also a wide range of other issues that can negatively affect your sexual health. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can help you feel more like yourself, both in and out of the bedroom.
