Men's Health Q & A

What is men’s health?

Men’s health refers to the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of men. Men experience unique health issues because of their reproductive organs and require specialized care. 

They’re also at risk of developing chronic health conditions that are potentially preventable with early interventions. 

Galenus Group is a group medical practice dedicated to keeping Lehigh Acres and the surrounding communities healthy. They offer a wide variety of medical services in order to make health care more convenient and affordable for their patients.The team of great physicians includes providers who specialize in men’s health. 

What are some common conditions that affect men’s health?

Men are at greater risk of developing common chronic health conditions early because of biological and social factors. Some of the more common conditions that affect men’s health include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Liver disease
  • Depression
  • Cancer (prostate, colon, and lung)
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Regular visits to your primary care provider are the best tool you have for maintaining good health and preventing disease.

What services does men’s health provide?

Galenus Group offers a number of services for men’s health. These include:

Annual physical exams

Your annual physical exam is the most important medical visit of the year. The focus of this exam is on your current state of health and risk of future health problems. This information helps you and your provider develop a wellness plan to prevent disease.

Sex-specific screenings

About 50% of men ages 50 and older have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a natural enlargement of the prostate gland. Sex-specific screenings, like prostate exams and digital rectal exams (DRE), can alert you to BPH and other prostate-related issues.

Health evaluations

The Galenus Group team understands that many health issues develop without causing noticeable symptoms. To help you stay on top of your health, they offer cardiac evaluations with echocardiogram (echo), peripheral vascular disease (PVD) evaluations, and diabetes evaluations. 

Chronic care management

Chronic health conditions require ongoing medical interventions and monitoring. Galenus Group offers comprehensive chronic care management, helping you take control of your chronic health condition. 

Lab services

Galenus Group does onsite blood draws and has their own lab services, making it more convenient for you to get the health tests ordered by your provider.
