June is Men’s Health Awareness Month and Comprehensive Urologic Care encourages all men to take charge of their urologic health. This month, take these three important steps to improving your urologic health:
Step 1 – Get Your Prostate Checked
Some 30 million men suffer from prostate conditions that impact their quality of life. Roughly 90% of men over the age of 70 and 50% of men over the age of 50 have some degree of an enlarged prostate.
Prostate cancer is treated best when discovered early and it isn’t the only condition affecting the prostate. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate, is a common, non-cancerous condition in older men in which the prostate gland enlarges, causing a number of symptoms.
Step 2 – Don’t Ignore Sexual Health Issues
As men grow older, sexual health issues may need to be addressed by a skilled urologist. CUC Physicians are highly experienced in men’s sexual health conditions including: Erectile dysfunction, Male infertility, and Low Testosterone.
Talking to a urologist about male sexual dysfunction can be difficult for many men, but it is incredibly important. Often male sexual dysfunction is caused by an underlying factor or medical condition that may be solved with medical and/or surgical treatment. There are times when the dysfunction is caused by stress, anxiety or outside pressure and this too, can often be treated very successfully.
Step 3 – Make it your Mission to Get Healthy, and Stay that Way
This June, take important steps toward getting healthy and staying that way. Follow these steps to achieve your health goals:
- Quit smoking
- Eat a diet rich in vegetable, fruits and low in unhealthy fats.
- Get more exercise
- See your urologist and Primary care provider for regular health checks and follow up exams.
