Men’s health is a term that encompasses all of the health issues that men face. Some of these issues affect both women and men, including:
But there are also health issues that are specific to males, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and benign prostate enlargement. Declining testosterone production is a primary health problem among men and can lead to a wide range of symptoms that can make it hard to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Vitiello Primary Care offers excellent health care for men of all ages. The process begins with a comprehensive physical exam to determine how your body is currently functioning. Lab testing is often part of the process.
You’ll receive the screenings appropriate for your age and overall health. The results of those tests guide further diagnostic work and shape treatment planning. If treatment is needed, JoAnn discusses the pros and cons of each available option, empowering you to take an active role in shaping your health and wellness journey.
If testing reveals a hormonal imbalance, you can discuss how supplemental hormone therapy can help. This treatment works by delivering bioidentical hormones to your system to supplement your natural testosterone production. Hormone replacement therapy is a great way to restore muscle mass, enhance mood, and address issues like erectile dysfunction.
Most men benefit from coming in for an annual men’s health visit. If your last few visits didn’t show signs of health issues, you might be able to stretch the time a bit between visits, especially if you aren’t experiencing symptoms.
If you have a chronic health condition or need treatment for a specific issue, you may need to come in more frequently. Chronic disease management can help improve your daily quality of life and control your condition to avoid serious health outcomes. Of course, you’re always welcome to come in for acute care needs.
