Guys, get the download on ED, Kidney stones, colon cancer and prostate cancer in men!
With National Prostate Cancer Awareness month focusing attention on prostate cancer in men, September is a good time for the X-O chromosome set to pay attention to other aspects of their health, too. We know—given the choice of going to the doctor or waxing your chest hair, you just may choose waxing. No wonder women usually live longer!
Of the 15 leading causes of death, it’s no surprise that men have a higher risk for them all. Too many greasy burgers, too much time on the couch, and too many temptations like tobacco and alcohol have put your health in danger. But it’s never too late to make a healthy new start. That’s why USMD Hospital at Arlington is presenting The Man Series—free seminars throughout September that focus on some of the most popular male health issues. Each is hosted by a respected specialist—and member of the male species.
First up, is a look at early detection and treatment for prostate cancer. Join Richard Bevan-Thomas, M.D., at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, for The PSA Controversy & Prostate Cancer. One in six men will be diagnosed with the disease during his lifetime, and 241,740 new cases will be diagnosed in 2012. The prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test not only detects prostate cancer in men, but identifies who may be at risk for the deadly disease long before they experience symptoms.
If you suffer from painful kidney stones, don’t miss Leave No Kidney Stone Unturned at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 13. Mitch Abrahams, M.D., offers important information about the role your diet—especially salt, protein and calcium—and fluid intake play in preventing the formation of new kidney stones.
A little blue pill may have revolutionized the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED), but did you know ED can be a symptom of heart disease, diabetes and even prostate cancer in men? Gary Price, M.D., reveals how diet, lifestyle changes, medications and surgery are being used to effectively treat this condition that affects one in five men 20 or older, and one in two men who are 70 and older. Join him at 6 p.m. on Thursday, September 18 for Erectile Dysfunction Got You Down?
Along with prostate cancer in men, colorectal cancer was once considered a serious health threat primarily for men older than 50. But now much younger men—especially those who live on fast-food diets and spend too much time on the couch—are being afflicted in growing numbers. Ronald Kline, M.D., explains what you can do to reduce your risk for the Big C during It’s What’s in the Colon That Counts at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 25.
