Men's Health Q & A

How often should I have a men’s wellness exam?

Annual men’s health exams are highly recommended. The AllCare Family Medicine & Urgent Care of Alexandria team believes strongly in preventive care like men’s wellness exams and screenings. Both of these things allow you to recognize potential health problems before they’re severe or life-threatening.

What happens during a men’s wellness exam?

Wellness exams for both men generally include a discussion with your care provider about past and current health, as well as basic checks of your:

  • Blood pressure
  • Height and weight
  • Ears, nose, and throat
  • Eyes
  • Lungs
  • Heart
  • Skin
  • Reflexes
  • Abdomen
  • Lymph nodes

Depending on your age, you may need prostate cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, or other cancer screenings. If you need immunizations, your care provider administers those during your men’s wellness exam, too.

What are the most common men’s health problems?

Some of the most common men’s health issues also happen to be things that men don’t discuss with their health care provider often enough. Problems like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and low libido are more common than you may realize.

If you’re dealing with one of these issues or another men’s health concern that you feel embarrassed to discuss with your care provider, just know that the AllCare Family Medicine & Urgent Care of Alexandria team has extensive experience in these areas and they can help.

The care providers are also supportive, compassionate, and understanding, and they’re here to help in a non-judgmental way.

What are the symptoms of low testosterone?

Testosterone decreases naturally over the years, and that’s why low testosterone is so common in men as they age. Today, many men in their 20s and 30s even suffer from low testosterone.

If you suffer from the following symptoms, it’s possible that low testosterone is the reason why:

  • Premature ejaculation
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Increase in body fat
  • Hair loss

If you’re dealing with low testosterone or simply have some of the symptoms without low testosterone, your care provider customizes a solution that works for you.
