At Sam Rodgers, we are committed to treating your whole family, from newborns to seniors but we also know that each member of your family might have different health needs. With father’s day right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to focus on men’s health. For some time now the life expectancy for women has been longer than that of their male counterparts, and although that gap might be shrinking, higher rates of smoking and drinking and a tendency not to seek help are major factors in men’s health. Men are more likely to be diagnosed with heart disease and lung cancer and there are also health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone. Many of the major health risks that men face can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis. Even if you feel fine, you should still see your provider for regular checkups. These visits can help you avoid problems in the future.
Here is list of screenings and checks men should have completed:
Cholesterol and Heart Disease
