Men’s Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is the branch of health care focused on treating men and maintaining their wellbeing. Men and women have different bodies, and certain conditions affect them in different ways or disproportionately. At Ahearn & Associates Medical Center, the team encourages men to make their health a priority. 

In addition to physical differences, men are more likely to engage in behaviors that make them more prone to certain conditions. For example, men are more likely to:

  • Skip their annual physical exams
  • Drink alcohol
  • Use tobacco
  • Work in certain dangerous environments

The Ahearn & Associates Medical Center team assesses your lifestyle and the choices you make that affect your health. Additionally, they prioritize preventive care like check-ups and disease screenings to help you stay on track with your wellness.  

Which conditions affect men’s health?

Some conditions only affect men, and others affect men much more often than women. Ahearn & Associates Medical Center specializes in the diagnosis and management of conditions on both lists. 

Men have a higher likelihood of experiencing:

  • Colon cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Unintentional injuries

Additionally, only men develop:

  • Prostate complications
  • Prostate cancer
  • Low testosterone
  • Erectile dysfunction

The Ahearn & Associates Medical Center team helps you explore your risk factors for these and many other conditions. Treating conditions like these can help improve your sleep, sex life, relationships, and overall wellness.
