Men’s health provides specialized care for the unique health needs and concerns specific to individuals who identify as male. It encompasses many medical, preventive, and lifestyle practices that address specific health conditions that primarily affect men and promote their overall well-being.
Men’s health concerns can vary depending on age, medical history, and genetics. Health concerns that exclusively or disproportionately affect men include:
Men are also more likely than women to drink alcohol excessively, use tobacco products, and engage in risky behaviors. They’re also less likely to seek regular medical care, which can contribute to delayed diagnoses and poorer health outcomes.
Actively participating in your care can help protect your health and intercept potentially serious medical concerns when they’re still treatable.
Bridge City Family Medical Clinic provides a full suite of men’s health services for every age. Services the team specializes in include:
Primary care for men focuses on preventive health screenings, like prostate exams and cardiovascular function tests, sexual health care, nutrition counseling, and chronic disease management.
These exams screen for cancers that exclusively affect men. They involve a physical and rectal exam, blood work, imaging scans, and other tests.
Bridge City Family Medical Clinic offers sexually transmitted disease (STD) tests, fertility screenings, and contraception counseling for men.
With an onsite lab, the team can use blood work and other diagnostic screenings to test your hormone levels and other factors that may contribute to erectile dysfunction. The practice also offers Biote® hormone therapy to boost testosterone levels.
