Men's Health Q & A

What is a man’s yearly wellness exam like?

Any physical includes measuring height and weight, and checking vital signs like temperature, blood pressure, breathing rate, and heart rate, then doing a thorough physical examination. A man’s annual checkup will also involve the following exams unique to males:

Testicular exam: A physical exam of the testicles can detect any changes, growths, or sore areas that may foreshadow a bigger problem.

Penis exam: The doctor checks for any discoloration, lumps, or signs of infection typically associated with sexually transmitted diseases. If there is any change in overall function of the organ, the doctor will check for any outward signs.

Hernia exam: There are many different types of hernias, but because the lower abdominal wall in males is prone to weakness, doctors will check the area to evaluate the risk of the bladder or intestines bulging through. This usually entails checking the scrotum while the male coughs.

Prostate exam: In order to check for an enlarged prostate, which could indicate a number of issues, the doctor will typically perform a quick rectal exam to gauge its size.

What are the common problems in men’s health?

The most common problems among men include:

Heart health: Atherosclerosis, or the hardening of the arteries, is the main culprit when it comes to poor heart health in men. Addressing cholesterol and lifestyle issues can often help prevent cardiovascular disease.

Prostate cancer: Prostate cancer is diagnosed in one out of six men, but is highly treatable.

Diabetes: Problems with weight can lead to adult-onset diabetes, also called type 2 diabetes.

Erectile dysfunction: Erectile problems in men are common as they age, but ED is also an important predictor of heart disease.

Can men benefit from preventive care?

Absolutely. Preventive care and taking steps toward overall wellness are the biggest keys for men’s health. Getting the right amount of exercise, eating well, tracking potential and existing medical conditions, and being vigilant about noticing any changes, no matter how minor, go a long way toward avoiding diseases and conditions that commonly plague men.
Through regular monitoring, the doctors at Montes Medical Group can identify areas for improvement that will have a significant impact on preventing or minimizing serious problems, such as heart disease and cancer.
