Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is a field of medicine that focuses on offering personalized disease prevention and treatment and providing services that meet men’s unique health care needs. Because men typically don’t seek medical care until they have significant symptoms of an illness or condition, they often experience more complications from diseases like:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD)
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory disease
  • Stroke
  • Obesity

Men are also more likely to suffer significant injury or death from household accidents, unintentional injuries, and substance abuse. An essential part of protecting your health is to have a regular men’s health evaluation that screens for these and other male-specific conditions and to seek treatment when you have concerning symptoms. The team at Family Health Center of Bastrop creates a men’s health plan that identifies your health risks and helps you prevent conditions that can lead to serious complications.

What are some conditions specific to men’s health?

Like women, men have specific health care needs due to their reproductive anatomy, hormone production, and age-related changes. Having a provider that offers compassionate, comprehensive, gender-specific care is critical to preventing illness and treating conditions specific to men’s health.

Some men’s health concerns include:

  • Low testosterone
  • Decreased libido or sex drive
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Prostate cancer
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Prostate enlargement

The team at Family Health Center of Bastrop offers a wide range of services that empower you to take charge of your health and wellness. No matter your age or health status, they develop a plan of care that allows you to make lifestyle choices that keep you energetic, active, and sexually healthy.
