Prostate problems can lead to significant suffering and even death if not detected and treated. Low testosterone levels are risk factors for depression, loss of muscle mass, fatigue, and loss of libido. Erectile dysfunction is a diagnosis frequently causing decreased quality of life that patients are sometimes reluctant to discuss even though multiple treatment options are available.
Men’s Healthcare issues are often preventable and frequently completely treatable. Denying a concern for Men’s Healthcare maintains both a decreased quality of life and causes suffering in silence.
The age range varies greatly. Undescended testes can be detected in the newborn. Testicular torsion can occur at any age, as can epididymitis. Testicular cancer commonly presents between age 25-40 years. Some Men’s Health diagnoses are found more commonly later in life such as benign prostatic hypertrophy and prostate cancer.
Depends on the condition. Options range from observation to medication to surgical intervention. Medication options are also varied, including oral medications, topical creams, and injectable medications. In general, for most Men’s Healthcare issues, a successful treatment plan can be found leading to resolvement of symptoms and an increased quality of life.
