Men's Health Q&A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is an area of medicine that focuses on preventing, diagnosing, and treating health problems in men. While men and women share many of the same health concerns, men are less likely to visit their health care provider for checkups. They’re also more likely than women to engage in risky behavior, use tobacco, and consume high quantities of alcohol.

Working with a health care provider specializing in men’s health care can help protect your physical, mental, and sexual health as you age.

What does men’s health include?

Atlantic Health Medical Associates offers a broad range of men’s health services, including:


Preventive screenings

Preventive health screenings check for signs of disease when you aren’t showing symptoms. These evaluations help prevent disease and allow the team to address early health concerns when they’re still treatable. Depending on your age, the team may recommend colon cancer, cardiovascular, lung function, or prostate screening.


Prostate exams

The prostate is a small gland that sits directly below the bladder in men. It produces fluid that helps create semen. Men aged 65 and older are at an increased risk of prostate disorders, including cancer and an enlarged prostate. 

A digital exam, which involves inserting a gloved finger into the rectum, allows the team to check for abnormal prostate symptoms, such as swelling or nodules.


Sexual health care

As men age, their sexual health and function can change. Common problems, such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, and loss of face and body hair, can diminish your self-esteem and interfere with your romantic relationships.


Hormone therapy

One of the most common causes of sexual dysfunction in men is testosterone loss. Men lose about 1% of this hormone each year after age 30. Hormone therapy can replace these lost hormones to relieve unwanted symptoms. 


Chronic disease management

Chronic disease management is a supervised plan that includes nutritional counseling, checkups, lab work, and lifestyle changes to prevent the progression of chronic diseases.
