Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health at RPG Health consists of preventive medicine, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of common men’s health-related concerns, such as:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)
  • Low testosterone
  • Low sex drive
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Other mental health concerns
  • Arthritis
  • Gout

Early detection and treatment of men’s health conditions is the best way to avoid serious complications.

 

Which men’s health services are available? 

Some of the men’s health services you can take advantage of at RPG Health include:

  • Disease screening
  • Physical exams
  • Chronic disease management 
  • Sick visits
  • Vaccinations 
  • Testosterone replacement therapy
  • Medically supervised weight loss
  • Wellness coaching
  • Mental health treatments
  • Specialist referrals 
  • Physicals

You might need a physical exam for work, sports, or school. It’s a good idea to have one, even if you’re in good health, once a year to detect medical problems or their risk factors before they turn serious.

Signs of low testosterone include weight gain, muscle mass loss, increased body fat, thinning hair, fatigue, and depression. Testosterone replacement therapy is the key to looking younger and feeling better, especially if you’re a man over 40.

 

What should I expect during men’s health exams?

During men’s health exams at RPG Health, your provider offers the following:

 

Medical history review

Your men’s health specialist reviews your medical history. This includes symptoms you may have, your personal and family history of disease, your lifestyle habits, and your medication or dietary supplement regimen. 

 

Vital signs check

Your primary care provider weighs you and evaluates your body mass index (BMI). They also assess your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs.

 

Physical exam

Your RPG Health specialist completes a physical exam to evaluate your overall health and wellness. They listen to your heartbeat and breathing and offer prostate exams to screen for cancer. 

 

Diagnostic testing

If you’re at risk of developing a disease or have symptoms of one, your RPG Health provider may recommend diagnostic testing. They could suggest blood tests, urine testing, allergy or asthma tests, electrocardiograms (EKGs), X-rays, or other imaging procedures.

 

Treatment

If you need treatment for a medical problem, your RPG Health specialist tailors a treatment plan just for you. You might need medically supervised weight loss, lifestyle changes, prescription medications, testosterone replacement therapy, or care from a specialist. 

 

When should I schedule men’s health exams?

Unless your doctor recommends more frequent checkups, schedule men’s health exams every year. You can see your RPG Health specialist if you get ill, have concerns about your health, or develop unusual or alarming symptoms.
