Facing Men’s 3 Top Health Issues
01/18/2023

Some of the most significant health issues faced by men include prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health problems. Here is what everyone needs to know about these illnesses that men may be more prone to.

Prostate Cancer
Prostate cancer affects the prostate, a walnut-shaped gland located above the urinary bladder. It produces the seminal fluid that nourishes and transports sperm. Common symptoms include difficulty with peeing, blood in the urine or semen, erectile dysfunction, and persistent pain in the pelvis, hips, or back. It may also emerge without any symptoms in its early stages. Hence, it’s important for men aged 50 and above to see a urologist for medical advice and possible treatments.

Testicular Cancer
Unusual lumps on the testicle can be an early sign of testicular cancer. Regular testicle self-exam is recommended to spot suspicious lumps around the testicular area. If there is swelling or pain in the area, men should see a urologist immediately.

Mental Health Problems
An engaging and accepting environment is important for mental health. Often, a lack of sensitivity to men’s emotional needs may prevent them from seeking help, which is unfortunate as poor mental health may affect personal relationships, productivity, and overall health. Among the byproducts of mental health issues include mood disorders, substance abuse, and chronic diseases.

Scheduling regular checkups is one of the keys to living one’s best life. This is because medical screenings help catch health issues before they become serious.
