Men’s Health Issues

Dealing with Health Issues is not our Strongest Point

Prostate Cancer with Gleason Pattern

Picture by: Nephron

Too often, as we age, we tend to become quite leery of visiting our physicians for regular checkups. Regrettably, though, we cannot always rely on the standard, “I feel fine – why see the doc?” Diseases, conditions, and chronic illnesses can wreak havoc for the health and even the life if they don’t manage to be detected and treated early on. Any health related journal or leaflet will tell you, after a specific age, women need to have annual mammograms, pap smears, and also the like, and men must have annual check-ups, as well. Particularly, the prostate have to be kept healthy, and yet too many men are reluctant to face this very real health issue.

It is quite unfortunate that this will prevent a lot of males in today’s society from addressing such an important health issue, however it is certainly true. How many women ought to prod their husbands to the point of exasperation to get them to visit a doctor for an illness, let alone a routine physical? The macho bravado a lot of display is really a sense of fear that something may truly be wrong with them, what if the doctor finds something wrong? What if there are more tests to be conducted to rule out the potential for that dreaded word: cancer? No one, to be honest, wants to find that they’re encountering an illness, nevertheless it is actually better to know than to be kept in the dark. This health issue is of such dire importance that men simply cannot ignore it, and yet they do.

Prostate cancer impacts millions of men the world over, and so many of these cases would have been prevented had the men heeded the recommendation of medical professionals. Why do men appear to ignore the necessity for this exam? Likely, it has to do with the private nature on the exam itself, many men simply have an exceptionally real embarrassment about having their genital areas probed and prodded in a doctor’s office. Whether the doctor is male or female may play a role, as some men are naturally uncomfortable having another man, albeit a doctor, a professional, examine these most private of areas, while others are genuinely skittish about having a female doctor do the same.

All in all, a health issue that can be taken care of quite easily with an annual, routine check-up is one which continues to be ignored by many males. Nobody can stress the need for preventative medicine enough to make men understand of the fact that embarrassment, the fear, the overall feeling of being uncomfortable, are all quite natural, but they must be overcome. To prevent or at least detect prostate cancer early is nowhere near as loathsome as having to go through surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. Men, take control of your health, and don’t let this health issue be one that you just overlook.
