Men's Health Q & A
What is men’s health?
Men’s health focuses on helping men maintain their health and reduce their risk of diseases that commonly affect them. Men’s and women’s bodies are different; some diseases affect men only, and others hit them at higher rates than women for various reasons.
Research shows that men are more likely to avoid doctor’s visits, including primary and preventive care. They’re also more likely to engage in behaviors that pose a risk to their health, like smoking and heavy drinking.
Fortunately, many conditions that affect men’s health are preventable through lifestyle management and regular health and wellness care. The Temecula Medical Group team helps you assess and lower your risk of conditions common in men, like heart disease, diabetes, depression, erectile dysfunction, and prostate problems.
