How to Avoid the Hospital

Hello, my name is Simon. I am a 59-year-old man who lives alone in downtown Perth. I am pleased to say that I have never had to spend a night in a hospital. This is because I know how to take care of myself. When I was growing up my grandpa often used to tell me that if you eat well and exercise, you will live a long life. He died aged 95, so he must have known something. However, it was only when I became friends with a doctor, that I discovered all the other things I could do to stay healthy. I decided to start this blog to encourage others to look after their health.

Why Men's Health Clinics Are Finding So Much Success In Australia

Health & Medical Blog

When it comes to health issues, you may not think about ones that are gendered. After all many major hospitals, general practitioners and specialists are unisex and open to all. However, it would be disingenuous to say that there is no need for individual clinics where people can get the specific help they need for problems relating to their sex. If you have been feeling a bit awkward about a problem and aren't sure whether you need to seek treatment or not, then here are a few common problems many men face that you can get treatment for at a men's health clinic.

Sexual Frustrations

Sex is an important part of so many relationships, and not being able to perform in the same way you used to can cause a certain level of anxiety amongst men. For example, those who deal with premature ejaculation or who cannot maintain an erection for long enough might become severely depressed by this issue. Men's health clinics are a secluded space where you can talk about how you feel and get proper, medical advice without ever feeling awkward or out of place. Sex can be a taboo subject, but don't let it ruin your life when it can be so vital for you and your partner.

Depression And Mental Health

Depending on which men's health clinic you go to, there is a very good chance you will find quite a focus on mental health. Men are more than three times likely to commit suicide which makes it quite a major issue when suicide is one of the leading causes of death. If you feel like you have no one to turn to and can't deal with talking to someone over the phone, then book a meeting with a professional at a men's health clinic; they are there to support you and get you the care you need.

Prostate Cancer 

Prostate cancer is, unfortunately, one of the most common forms of cancer in men and therefore it is vital you take steps to make sure you are safe from it as you get older. Prostate exams are uncomfortable and seem ridiculous, but they may just end up saving your life, which is why they are a crucial part of your scheduled health care visits. Many men's health clinics will have doctors who are able to perform these inspections, as well as diagnose various other forms of cancer including melanomas.
