Men’s Health Q & A
What is men’s health?
Men’s health is an area of medicine that focuses on the unique health needs of men. Though many chronic diseases affect all people, men have specific health concerns related to their reproductive organs.
The expert team at Flourish Wellness Center specializes in men’s health. They take an integrative and holistic approach to care and utilize a combination of therapies to optimize the health and well-being of male patients.
What conditions affect men’s health?
There are many conditions that affect men’s health.
Some of the most common include:
- Heart disease
- Colon cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Low testosterone
- Erectile dysfunction
- Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)
As men get older, the production of testosterone slows down. Low testosterone is a common cause of many age-related ailments, such as weight gain, loss of muscle mass, low libido, and erectile dysfunction.
With regular physicals and health screenings at Flourish Wellness Center, your provider can find these health issues during the early stages when they’re more responsive to treatment.
What happens during a men’s health exam?
When you visit Flourish Wellness Center for a men’s health exam, you can expect a comprehensive history and physical. The specifics of your exam may depend on your age, health needs and concerns, and medical history.
During your exam, your physician asks detailed questions about your health history, family history, diet, exercise routine, work-life, and daily stresses.
He conducts a physical exam and may request various diagnostic tests and health screenings to better understand your health needs and your risk factors for diseases.
