FirstMed doctors in our men’s health program know men face a unique set of health issues and specialize in the treatment of these conditions. It is important that men visit the doctor from time to time, especially if they believe they are living a relatively stress-free, healthy lifestyle. The truth is that most men, in comparison to women, need to pay more attention to their health. Men are less likely to seek out medical professionals, even when symptoms do arise, often times when it may even already be too late.
Men’s health deals not just with diseases that only affect males, such as testicular and prostate cancer, but also other health risks which men are at a disproportionately high rate of occurrence. The three top threats to men’s health are cardio-vascular disease, cancer and unintentional injury. By meeting regularly with your medical professional, potential diseases may be detected early, in time to take corrective measures.
The medical and nursing staff at FirstMed is there to support you in maintaining men’s health and fitness. Our skilled physicians will assist you with the diagnosis and treatment of general illnesses and concerns, and give you useful preventative advice for the future. FirstMed provides care according to the highest international standards whether you are in need of a general health checkup, age-related exams, or have concerns about other specific conditions. Our modern equipment and comfortable facilities will allow for relaxed consultations in a convenient, friendly setting.
Men need to pay more attention to their health. Compared to women, men are more likely to
- Smoke and drink
- Make unhealthy or risky choices
- Put off regular checkups and medical care
There are also men’s health conditions unique to them, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone. Men face major health risks – like colon cancer or heart disease – which can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. FirstMed screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. It’s important to get the screening tests you need.
