When it comes to the health of men, you really can't be too careful. Katie Couric lost her husband to colon cancer, and has been fighting to raise awareness ever since. As a result, more and more men are starting to ask their doctors about getting checked for the ailment. Because more and more frequently the cancer is getting caught in its early stages, more lives are being saved. Also, the sooner you catch cancer, the easier and less expensive the treatments seem to be. While colon cancer can cross gender lines and affect women as well as men, testicular cancer and prostate cancer are exclusive to guys.
Other health of men concerns include erectile dysfunction. Such a problem has the potential to put a huge strain on a relationship, and many men choose to treat erectile dysfunction with pharmaceutical drugs. While these can be very effective and provide immediate relief from the disorder, there are other alternatives available. For example, some men choose to treat it with diet and exercise. While this may take quite a bit longer than popping a blue pill does, it provides more long term relief. Also, depending on whether or not you have health insurance, diet and exercise may be a more affordable option.
Besides just men, entire families are concerned with the health of men. For example, if a man is working full time and is the primary breadwinner in a family, if he falls ill and can no longer do his job the whole family suffers. The woman of the house may have to pick up a job (or even a second job) to make ends meet. The best thing to do if you're a man and worried about your health is to get regular check ups. Visiting your doctor regularly can help you to stay healthy much longer than if you don't.
