Commit To Your Health This June
June is the start of Men’s Health Month which is the time to bring awareness to the health issues that all men face. Dedicated to enriching men’s lives, education-based campaigns were created to advocate for top medical conditions that men face. Men are less likely to seek healthcare than women which makes it difficult to spot and treat a diagnosis early on. They typically also exhibit a fear of diagnosis, with more than 40% of men deciding to not go to the doctor unless they have a serious medical condition.
It is important to understand the health risks faced by men over the age of 65 and the regular screenings that are recommended for this age group. Some screening tests that are recommended include:
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Prostate screening
- Blood pressure
- Colorectal cancer
- Diabetes mellitus, type 2
- Lipid disorders
Prostate cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States, is treatable when caught in the early stages. A few early warning signs of prostate cancer are difficulty urinating, frequent urges to urinate at night, blood in urine and burning or pain while urinating.
