Men's Health Q&A

What does men’s health care focus on?

Men’s health care strives to detect, treat, and prevent healthcare problems in adult males 18 and older. Statistics show that men live about five years less than their female counterparts, but, in many cases, the reasons for those earlier deaths are preventable or treatable. In fact, about half of premature deaths among Americans are preventable. 

Men’s health care focuses on whole-person wellness while also paying special attention to early diagnosis and treatment of potentially fatal conditions like heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, and prostate cancer. 

Ultimately, men’s health care can improve men’s health outcomes while empowering men to live healthier, more active, and more enjoyable lives. 

What can I expect during annual men’s health exams?

At Calabasas Medicine Group, men’s health care is different for every person, but all men need an annual wellness visit. During this visit, the team evaluates your overall health and screens for hidden problems. Your annual exams commonly include:

  • Medical history review
  • Discussing your lifestyle 
  • Discussing your health concerns
  • Vital sign checks
  • Physical exam, including heart, lungs, muscles, eyes, ears, nose, and more
  • Collection of blood, urine, or saliva samples for lab testing
  • Imaging tests, such as an echocardiogram
  • Treatment planning, including lifestyle, medication, and other approaches

In addition, the team recommends other screening tests based on your age and risk factors. For example, they’ll likely refer you to a gastroenterologist for a colonoscopy (colon cancer screening) if you’re over 45.

How often must I see the doctor for men’s health appointments?

Most men can improve their health by having an annual physical and following specific health recommendations from the Calabasas Medicine Group team. But, there may be times that you need support between your annual exams, and the team makes that easy through the concierge medicine program. 

With the concierge medicine model, you pay a membership fee and get priority access to medical care whenever you need it. So, if you develop any new symptoms or have health questions, you can reach out anytime through direct phone, email, or text contacts.
