Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health is the branch of medicine that’s centered around caring for men and the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of medical conditions that specifically affect men.

Many of the health conditions that impact men can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis and the right screening and testing. Screening tests can help to detect diseases and abnormalities early when they’re easier to treat. Men’s health also incorporates preventive care to lower disease risks and prevent various complications from occurring.

As a men’s health specialist, Dr. Hagen, ensures he spends sufficient time during your consultation educating you on how to live a healthier lifestyle with nutrition and fitness modifications.

Overall, men are less likely to visit the doctor regarding health problems. Scheduled preventive care checkups are an important part of men’s overall health care and can include a reproductive health exam, a discussion of medical history, physical exam, and any other necessary testing, such as cholesterol or blood pressure.

Dr. Hagen views the body as one interconnected system and treats most aspects of men’s health to foster wellness and ameliorate quality of life.

What are some of the health problems that commonly affect men?
