Men’s Health Month: Understanding the Risks and Prioritizing Prevention

It’s no secret that men are inclined to skip getting that weird mole looked at, let alone go in to check out the cause of their back pain…

According to the CDC, women are 33% more likely to visit the doctor than men, and women are 100% better at maintaining screening and preventive care.

Whether you’re an active weekend warrior or a full-time dad, it can be hard to prioritize yourself and your health when you’re busy taking care of business and everyone else in your life.

However, when it comes to cancer and disease, early detection can be the key to successful treatment and improved outcomes. Making the time for annual wellness screenings plays a crucial role in detecting health problems at their earliest stages, allowing for timely intervention and potentially saving lives. 

Since June is Men’s Health Month, this is a great time for men to focus on their well-being.

Empowering yourself with knowledge about your health allows you to make informed decisions and take preventive actions to mitigate potential risks. Undergoing regular screenings and routine adjustments offers peace of mind, knowing that you are proactively monitoring your health, so you can take care of the important things in life.

Remember, prevention saves lives. Quitting smoking, drinking in moderation, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy and varied diet all contribute to the prevention of cancer and disease. To set up a routine adjustment as a part of your preventative wellness plan visit today!
