All men can benefit from personalized health services at every stage of life.
At Horizon Health Care, our goal is to keep community members well, no matter their age. By offering men a wide range of preventative care options and screenings, we can help prevent and treat conditions and diseases that affect men differently.
Common Health Conditions and Diseases for Men
Most health conditions affect everyone, but there are some conditions that affect men exclusively or more often than women. Some of the top health issues men need to be aware of:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Lung cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Skin cancer
Another thing for men to consider is that not all conditions and illnesses affect men and women the same way. One such condition is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), which will manifest differently and often require different treatment plans for men and women.
Visiting with a primary care provider is a great way to ensure that the risk factors that are more prevalent in men are addressed properly, which will in turn give patients the confidence they need to proactively manage their health and wellness.
Services & Health Screenings for Men
Maintaining good health starts with a great support network. Horizon Health Care helps men achieve a healthy lifestyle with annual checkups and wellness exams to identify potential issues.
Some of the most common screenings and services we provide for men include:
- Blood pressure monitoring
- HIV/AIDS screenings
- Prostate cancer screenings
- STD testing and treatment
- Family medicine and planning
- Chronic care management
- Lab and X-ray services
- Acute care
The most important thing for patients to do to optimize their wellness is to get connected with their primary care provider to discuss their risk factors and find out what they should be doing to improve their health.
If there’s something you need that you don’t see in our list of services, we’ll help coordinate additional testing for you.
