Mens Health Q & A
What is men's health?
Just as with women, men have specific health needs related to both their reproductive system and their general wellness. Unfortunately, men as a group frequently neglect their health needs, which can cause chronic illnesses that can progress, putting you at risk of serious complications or even death.
Men's health care services at New Wave Physicians Group focus on preventive health and general wellness. You can identify health problems early, prevent them from growing serious, and maximize your wellness through customized men's health care.
By making the time for men's health care now, you can reduce the amount of time you spend at the doctor or in the hospital as you age.
How often do I need a men's health exam?
New Wave Physicians Group recommends annual men's health exams for general preventive care and wellness. If you have any acute illness or urgent care need, you can also get same-day care, so don't hesitate to contact the office if you need help.
Which screening tests do men's health visits include?
New Wave Physicians Group customizes health screenings during your wellness visits. Every man may require different screenings based on age, medical history, family history, lifestyle, current symptoms, and other risk factors.
Screenings can identify problems such as:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Type 2 diabetes and prediabetes (high blood sugar, but not yet at diabetes levels)
- Infectious disease - hepatitis C and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
- Skin cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Lung cancer
You may also need other specific disease screenings. A simple mental health screening is usually a part of your men's health exams as well.
A sexual health screening is also important. If you're having any issues like low libido or erectile dysfunction, don't hesitate to bring those concerns up during your appointment. Treatments like bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can treat low testosterone (a common cause of many men's health issues as they age) very effectively.
Do I need vaccinations during men's health exams?
You may need at least one vaccine during your annual men's health exam: influenza (flu) vaccine. Depending on your age and risk factors, you may need other vaccinations like a pneumococcal vaccine to reduce pneumonia risk or a herpes zoster vaccine to prevent shingles.
If you didn't have a Tdap vaccine as a teenager, you need to have it as an adult. All men need a Tdap booster vaccine every 10 years.
