Men's Wellness Q & A

What is a men’s wellness visit like?

Men’s bodies are designed uniquely and require attention specifically for them. It’s important to have an annual exam with the experienced physicians at Morgan Hill Internal Medicine where they cater specifically to your health.

Your exam begins with a review of your medical history and a comprehensive physical exam.

Your appointment may include:

  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) screening
  • Cancer screening
  • Prostate exam
  • Lab work for prostate specific antigen (PSA)
  • Colon cancer screening
  • Immunization guidance
  • Request order for labs

In addition, your doctor draws your blood to check your cholesterol levels, blood health, and to look for any vitamin deficiencies. Your doctor also listens to your heart and lungs.

At your exam, if further testing is required for any conditions, your doctor can refer you to the appropriate specialist.

The skilled team at Morgan Hill Internal Medicine has the expertise to take care of men’s health and provide thorough care with their extensive training and experience. 

How often should I have a men’s wellness exam?

Staying ahead of illnesses or diseases in your body increases your chances of terminating their harmful results or warding them off completely. Annual visits to see your doctor offer preventive care, which helps identify the early stages of any issues.

Yearly visits with your doctor keep your weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels in check. Monitoring your health with simple, yearly tests helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, lifestyle changes may be recommended to keep you healthy.

If you’re experiencing unusual symptoms with your health that need attention, you should see your doctor and talk about your concerns.

What health concerns are common with men’s wellness?

There are several health issues that affect men, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Prostate cancer
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Colon cancer
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Skin cancer
  • Liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Low testosterone
  • High blood pressure
  • Mental health issues
  • Alcohol addiction

A main concern with aging is the male reproductive hormone decreasing over time. Low testosterone can cause low sex drive, weight gain, fatigue, loss of muscle mass, and other symptoms.

Getting routine exams and screenings is the best way to identify issues before they become problematic. The team at Morgan Hill Internal Medicine can accurately assess your health at your appointment.
