Men’s health is a branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing illnesses in men. Men and women experience many of the same health problems, but men are less likely to visit the doctor or to seek treatment for unusual symptoms. They’re also more likely to participate in bad habits like using tobacco or drinking alcohol.
Additionally, men experience health problems specific to their gender, including erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, and prostate cancer. Regular check-ups can catch these and other problems early on when they respond best to treatment.
The team at Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D. offers a full suite of men’s health services, including:
A well-visit or annual exam is a check-up used to monitor your physical health and well-being. Many serious health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol, present few obvious symptoms. As a result, you might be at risk and not realize it. Well visits can alert you to these and other issues.
A well-visit also presents the opportunity to ask questions, discuss unusual symptoms, and to build a relationship with your primary care physician.
A sick visit is a doctor’s appointment used to diagnose and treat a specific problem. If you wake up with a sore throat or develop a fever that won’t go away, a sick visit can pinpoint the underlying cause. If necessary, your provider can also prescribe medication.
After the age of 50, men are more likely to experience prostate and colorectal cancer. Preventive screening measures like prostate exams and colonoscopies can catch these issues early on before they spread to other areas of the body. Early intervention usually results in better outcomes.
Health problems like high cholesterol, low testosterone, and vitamin deficiencies aren’t always easy to diagnose. Laboratory testing, like blood panels and urinalysis, provide additional insights for your doctor, which assist in guiding treatment.
Sexual health problems like erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, and STDs can negatively affect your most intimate relationships. The experienced providers at Fernando Bueso, M.D., P.A. and Francisco J. Bueso, M.D. offer treatment for these and other related issues in a warm, welcoming, and discreet environment.
