Men’s Health Week! June 12 – 18, 2017

June 7, 2017

In recognition of Men’s Health Week, here are some preventative health care tips:

  • Body Measurement – Men over the age of age 20 should have their body measurement taken every two years. The measurements can reveal if someone is obese or overweight.
  • Blood Pressure – Men should have their blood pressure taken at least every two years to detect early signs of hypertension (high blood pressure).
  • Cholesterol Screening – Men should have a cholesterol test every five years after the age of 20. High levels of cholesterol raise the risk of heart attack and stroke.
  • Fasting Blood Sugar – Men should have a blood sugar test every three years after the age of 45 to measure a risk for diabetes.
  • Colorectal Cancer Screening – Men should have a colorectal screening to detect cancerous cells and growths in the inside wall of the colon after the age of 50.
  • Prostate Cancer Screening – Men over the age of 50 should have a yearly digital rectal exam and prostate screening test.
  • Testicular Cancer – All teenage males and adult men should have a testicular exam every time they visit the doctor for a physical exam.
