Men are staying healthier and living longer now than in decades past. This gain in life expectancy can be credited to men making better lifestyle choices- eating healthier, not smoking and being an informed, active partner in their medical health by getting regular check-ups and preventative screenings. Your urological health is as important as your overall health. Fortunately, many of the health conditions and diseases that men face can be prevented or treated - if found early. Prostate cancer, colon cancer, and testicular cancer are all treatable when found early. Preventative screenings play a major role in increasing the survival rates of these conditions, so be sure to see your Dr. on a regular basis.
We at the Urology Care Foundation feel that the more knowledge you have about an illness that affects you or a loved one, more effectively you will be able to work with your doctors to make informed decisions about treatments.
Some of the most common conditions are listed and we urge you to look through them, educate yourself and talk to your doctor. UrologyHealth.org is your partner is your urologic health!
