FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE HEALTH BELOW THE BELT CAMPAIGN

Urologist at New York University Langone Health and the Manhattan VA

 

 

It’s no secret that men can be notoriously bad about keeping up regular doctor’s visits. This June marks National Men’s Health month, a time of year when the Urology Care Foundation encourages men to take charge of their health. During this time, men are encouraged to talk to their doctors about their risk for such urology-related conditions as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and other health conditions that can impact their overall health.

 

In this radio interview, urologist Dr. Stacy Loeb will educate men on how they can take charge of their health, at any age. She’ll discuss why prostate cancer rates are on the rise and what men can do to ensure they are keeping tabs on their health.

 

DECADE BY DECADE:

  • Men in their 20’s should perform routine testicular self-exams and find out if they have a family history of testicular, prostate, bladder or kidney cancer
  • Men in their 30’s should be proactive about staying healthy because high blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol can cause kidney disease or erectile dysfunction – men should also consider quitting smoking or vaping as smoking is the #1 cause of bladder cancer and new research is also linking vaping to an increased risk for bladder cancer
  • Men in their 40’s should talk to their doctor about whether prostate cancer screening is right for them if they are African American or have a father, brother or son with prostate cancer
  • Men in their 50’s should talk to their doctor about prostate cancer screening and any issues they may be experiencing with erectile dysfunction as research has noted ED may be an early warning sign of a cardiovascular event such as heart attack
  • Men in their 60’s should look for changes in bathroom breaks like an increased sense of urgency to urinate, a need to urinate more often decreased flow or frequent nighttime urination
