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.

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.
