Men, Don’t Ignore Your Health!
Health Starts Here
Just like women, men have unique health risks that, if not addressed early, can severely impact long-term health. Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer in men behind skin cancer, but it’s highly treatable if detected early. Men are also at greater risk of developing abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a swelling of the body’s main artery that affects four times more men than women.
These are just two important reasons men should find a primary care provider (PCP). PCPs make sure you get the screenings you need to avoid cancer and other long-term health threats and give you advice about preventing other health conditions, ranging from cardiovascular disease to diabetes, that keep men from enjoying life to its fullest.
