According to the Men’s Health Network, a lack of awareness, poor health education, and culturally induced behaviour patterns in their work and personal lives are dramatically affecting men’s health. Our articles and guides below will aid you in understanding the common conditions that can affect men’s health, along with tips on staying healthy and active to support your general health.
The Men’s Health Network (MHN) reports that men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death, including heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Compared to women, men are also less likely to see a doctor regularly or even when they develop symptoms. Many of the major health risks that men face can be prevented with a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, balanced nutrition, giving up smoking and reducing alcohol intake.
Conditions that uniquely affect men include male infertility, prostate problems and testicular cancer. Early diagnosis of any disease gives the best chance of recovery so it’s important to be aware of any changes that may need further investigation, as well as supporting your overall health.
Understanding what is happening in your body and where your health might need some further investigation or support allows you to make informed decisions and positive changes where needed. We’ve included below our guides and articles to support you in understanding the types of conditions that affect men’s health and how to manage them.
