Men’s Health

Compared to women, men are more likely to smoke and drink, follow poor dietary habits, make unhealthy or risky choices and put off regular checkups and medical care. There are also health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer, low testosterone and erectile dysfunction. Many of the major health risks that men face, such as colon cancer and heart disease, can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat.
