At Tuross Head Medical Centre, we’ve made it a point to encourage men to take an active part in their health and wellbeing. This involves going for regular check-ups and ensuring they get any irregularities or issues checked early so they have the best chance of treating it successfully. Men’s Health should not be an afterthought. There needs to be more awareness so more men will take action and be more vigilant and responsible when it comes to their health and wellbeing.
While it is important for everyone to take charge of their general health, each person may also have more particular health needs. For one, risk factors like cardiovascular diseases and high blood pressure, which are common among men, can be managed if addressed immediately.

It is often said that men, on average, pay less attention to their health compared to women. This observation is alarming when you consider the fact that negligence can lead to severe health consequences. While health risks do not always arise immediately, these can quickly snowball into larger complications in the long run. If such risks are not attended to in the early stages, the long-term consequences may no longer be reversible.
Aside from conditions like heart disease, stroke, and similar issues, men are also at risk of unique issues like prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. All these points highlight the importance of Men’s Health and learning to make conscious and healthy decisions.
Regular Health Checks are critical to keep an eye on your health and identify potential problem areas and take measure to fix them before they have a chance to blow up and become bigger health concerns.
After your first consultation, your physician will then conduct a series of tests to get a more comprehensive assessment of your health. Aside from the standard blood sugar and pressure check and heart check, you may also be asked for a urine test to check your urologic condition. Specific procedures, such as a prostate, testes, and STD check may also be done if deemed fit or if applicable to your situation.
While the list of tests may sound exhaustive, these are all done to ensure that you are in tiptop shape. Should you have any underlying conditions that need to be addressed, early detection is key to treating them before they become worse. That said, even after these tests are performed, you must still visit your doctor regularly for routine check-ups to ensure that you are in good health.
