What health assessments should men do?

While women seem to take more care of their health, men still need to get into the habit of going to the doctor more, especially for routine preventive check-up’s.

A routine appointment can detect a health problem early, which increases the chances of a cure. There is a lot of talk about life expectancy, and preventing disease can considerably increase everyone's life span.

Check-ups not only prevent illnesses but also increase the individual's sense of well-being. When we don't go to the doctor, we believe that everything is fine, and that's why there is a natural tendency to expose ourselves even more to risks.

With the discovery of a simple change in sugar in the body, we can change eating habits so that we don't develop diabetes. Another very silent and very frequent disease is hypertension, which can go unnoticed and expose ourselves to even more risks. In the case of cancer, if it is not diagnosed early, it will almost certainly not have a cure.

Overcome stigma and take proper exams

The type of tests in a check-up varies according to the age of the people, but still some evaluations are extremely important as the blood test that detects altered levels of sugar and cholesterol, or even the presence of an infection. With a blood test it is also possible to assess PSA levels that indicate the possible presence of prostate cancer.

It is very important to assess vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and lungs, through simple tests to look for some very frequent and sometimes silent diseases.

  • Cardiovascular system – electrocardiogram, cardiac ultrasound, blood pressure measurement, cholesterol
  • Kidneys – urine assessment
  • Lungs – Chest X-ray, spirometry
  • Liver – transaminases, GT range
  • Urinary system – urinalysis
  • Prostate – rectal examination, PSA

Prostate assessment

The doctor who takes care of the male sexual tract and the urinary system is the urologist, and all men over 40 are advised to make routine appointments with this specialist. To assess the prostate, the doctor can do anything from just a conversation to detect symptoms associated with prostate changes or even ask to perform some tests if he suspects a problem. The most frequent tests are a digital rectal exam, urinalysis, and PSA levels, which is an important marker in the detection of prostate cancer.
