Men’s health month is celebrated all over the country with health fairs, free health screenings, and other health education events and activities. Men’s health month is the time to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of diseases associated with men. It encourages men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment of disease and injury. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer among men, excluding skin cancer. Sexual health is a major overall health marker for men. 1 in 4 men experience some form of sexual health concerns by age 65. Erectile dysfunction and lower testosterone is linked to major health risks, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Honor the men in your life and “wear blue” to help spread the awareness of men’s health month.
