The men’s health screenings you should schedule this month.
Did you know that June is Men’s Health Awareness Month? What better way to celebrate it than by making an appointment with a doctor and reviewing your health? Although routine health screenings often get pushed to the side, they are important in helping you to understand your health and habits. This June, schedule some time to see a doctor to complete the necessary check-ups.
Prostate Cancer Screening
One out of eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during his life. One key to overcoming the disease is early detection. Hospitals, university medical programs, and physician groups are great places to find free or reduced-cost prostate screenings.
Testicular Cancer Screening
Compared to other types of cancer, testicular cancer is relatively rare. However, that doesn’t mean it should be ignored. It is highly treatable if caught early, so it’s important to be on the lookout for signs and symptoms.
Mental health is just as important as your physical health. If you’re in between doctor visits, you can take a free online mental health assessment for a quick preliminary evaluation. If you are struggling mentally, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
