Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health refers to the specific health care needs of men. Men generally have different health risks than women, and there are even a few conditions that affect men exclusively. 

The services pertaining to men’s health are particularly important because many men have the tendency to ignore possible health concerns and avoid trips to the doctor’s office. The team at ABS Clinical Services offers all the support and information you need to know when a doctor’s visit is necessary. They also help you keep up on preventive health care. 

Additionally, men are more likely to engage in risky behaviors that increase their likelihood of various diseases and injuries. The team at ABS Clinical Services helps you mitigate these risks by making your health and wellness a priority at any age. 

Which conditions can affect men’s health?

  • Low testosterone
  • Enlarged prostate

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Heart disease and high cholesterol
  • Alcoholism
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Stroke

You may not be aware of your health risks, but the team goes over your personal medical history as well as your family medical history to highlight possible future concerns. The team provides personalized recommendations for preventive services, lifestyle changes, and various treatments.

Which men’s health services might I need?

ABS Clinical Services gives you the tools and methods you need to stay healthy at any phase of life. If you have any new or worsening symptoms, Khudsi and the team encourage you to come in for an evaluation.
