Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health care?

Men's health care is an important aspect of every man’s health and well-being. It involves addressing the specific physical and mental health challenges that men face. Many health concerns affect men differently than women. Others exclusively impact men. 

Specialized care ensures that men receive the targeted care they need to prevent, treat, and manage their health. At Hibari Family Medical, the team provides individualized care and personalized plans to help manage your health as you age.

What are the top men’s health concerns?

Men are at an increased risk of health concerns that anybody can develop. Research shows this disconnect between men's and women’s risk for certain conditions is because men are more likely to drink alcohol, use tobacco, and forgo seeing their doctor for routine care.

Health concerns that are more likely to affect men than women include:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Lung cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Bladder cancer

Many medical conditions are also exclusive to men, including prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction (ED). Regular preventive care, including routine physical exams and screenings, can help identify and manage these health concerns early on, leading to better health outcomes for men. 

It’s important for men to prioritize their health and seek care when needed to prevent, treat, and manage these conditions.

At what age do men’s health problems usually develop?

Men’s health problems can develop at any age but are more likely to occur during middle age. From age 40-60, men’s testosterone levels gradually decline. 

Testosterone is responsible for many male characteristics, including muscle mass, fat distribution, facial hair, and libido. Low testosterone can change your physical and mental function, appearance, and sexual health.
