Mens Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating health problems that affect men.

Most medical disorders affect both men and women, but some are particularly common in men. These include:

  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Sleep apnea
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Hair loss

Some conditions affect the male reproductive system and therefore only occur in men.

What men’s health conditions might affect me?

The main conditions that affect only men include:

Erectile dysfunction (ED)

ED is an inability to get or keep an erection. If you experience this problem frequently, you might have a cardiovascular disorder that affects blood flow to your penis. There are many other possible causes of ED.

Low testosterone

Low testosterone levels can cause what’s known as andropause — the male menopause. 

While men don’t experience the same physical changes as women in midlife, their testosterone levels can fall low enough to cause problems like fatigue, loss of muscle mass, and low libido (lack of interest in sex).

Prostate conditions

Benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is a common problem that causes issues with urination. You could also get prostate cancer, which has similar symptoms.

Cancer can also affect the penis and testicles, but this is less common.

What men’s health services might I need?

Men’s health services that Maryland Primary Care and Urgent Care offers include:

Well-man exams

Your well-man exam or annual physical is an essential procedure that helps prevent ill health and treat diseases at an early stage. 

Your provider checks your health indicators, including blood pressure, heart rate, and lung sounds. Then, they will examine your penis and testicles and perform a prostate exam.

Lab services

For your convenience, Maryland Primary Care and Urgent Care provides on-site lab services to screen for diseases, help with diagnosis, and monitor health problems.

Preventive care

Preventive care services focus on lowering your risk of ill health. In addition to your well-man exam, you might benefit from weight loss, nutrition and diet advice, an exercise program, quitting smoking and alcohol, and stress management.

Maryland Primary Care and Urgent Care is an adult primary care practice with dedicated and experienced providers offering comprehensive men’s health services.
