Men's Health

by David Shusterman, MD

What does it mean to provide a men's health service?

Men's health service is simply medical care that supports the needs of men. It’s a combination of wellness care, preventive medicine, proper diagnostics, and comprehensive treatment options. The phrase “men’s health” indicates a broad spectrum of services that include gender-specific urology concerns, but is holistic in nature. You can expect Dr. Shusterman to look beyond the urinary system and consider:

  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Ear, Nose, and Throat
  • Gastroenterology
  • Orthopedics
  • Primary Care

Men's health is an all-inclusive care system created for men.

Is prostate health part of the men's health service?

Prostate health is certainly a prominent factor in men's health. As men grow older, their risk of having a problem prostate increases. Dr. Shusterman looks for conditions like:

  • Prostatitis
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Prostate cancer

That’s not the only issue that men deal with, though. The men’s health service focuses on urology but is really about wellness. Dr. Shusterman's goal is to cover the health basics along with conditions specific to men.

What are some gender-specific conditions men face?

The men’s health service includes a regular screening of prostate and testicular conditions. A physical involves a traditional exam, along with a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen test (if needed). NY Urology also helps patients suffering from low testosterone that can lead to erectile dysfunction, low sex drive, and mood swings. That is all part of the men’s health service.

Is this service really only for older men then?

No, men of all ages face gender-specific health problems. The truth is young men are often at risk for different urological problems such as testicular cancer. It usually strikes men between the ages of 20 and 39 and early diagnosis is the key to survival.

Are there traditional medical conditions that tend to affect men more?

Men have a higher risk for some illnesses that can affect both genders such as cardiovascular disease, colorectal cancer, and diabetes. Prevention and wellness care include screening for chronic illnesses, as well as gender-specific conditions like prostate cancer. Men’s health even includes screening for some conditions generally associated with women, such as breast cancer or hormone imbalances.
