Women can often take the leadership role when it comes to healthy habits in their relationships. You might encourage your boyfriend to go the gym; you might convince your husband he needs to get more sleep; you might even change your shopping habits to get the man you love to eat healthier.
And women can also have the knowledge to help their male partners pay more attention to their urological health. For example, if you notice that your partner gets up to go to the bathroom more than three times a night, they should see a doctor, as this could be a sign of a prostate or bladder problem – or something more serious.
Here are more facts all women (and men) should know:
Erectile dysfunction (ED) can be the sign of something more serious
In most cases, ED is treatable, but about 70% of cases are caused by an existing medical condition, such as
• High blood pressure
• High cholesterol
• Heart disease
So if your loved one is experiencing ED, he should see a doctor.
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men
There isn’t anything that a man can do to prevent testicular cancer; however, if it’s caught early, the cure rate is high. So be aware of signs, including persistent pain or a lump in the testicular area.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men
About one in seven men get prostate cancer, but if they have a family history of prostate cancer, the risk is much higher, with one in three having the disease. Your man should know his risks and talk to his doctor to determine if he should be screened.
Male infertility is more common than you both may realize
In some 40% of infertile couples, the man is either the reason or a contributing reason for their infertility.
Women can encourage their partners to see the doctor
Men can be reluctant to report their symptoms to a doctor, so tell him if he doesn’t make an appointment, you will. Call today: 972-403-5425
