If you’re like most people, then you’ve probably waited too long to get something serious checked out at least once in your life. Maybe you hoped it would go away on its own, or perhaps you were apprehensive about discussing your symptoms with someone else. While you should never ignore concerning symptoms, today’s post highlights four things that you should always bring to your physician’s attention.

If you’re experiencing concerning symptoms of any kind, contact Men’s Vitality Center in Glendale and we will schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible.

Don’t Ignore These Four Serious Symptoms

Excessive Thirst

While we recommend that you stay hydrated, constant and insatiable thirst is often indicative of something more concerning. The most common cause of excessive thirst is diabetes, which causes the body to induce thirst in an attempt to eliminate glucose from the bloodstream. You should always talk to your health care provider if your family has a history of diabetes, or if you’ve been feeling thirstier than normal.

Our Glendale men’s health clinic offers a diabetes management program that can help you manage your blood sugar levels and avoid serious complications. Contact our office to learn more.

Changing Moles

Studies show that men are more likely than women to develop fatal skin cancer. While more research is needed to understand why, some researchers hypothesize that men are less likely to use sunscreen.

If you have moles, it’s a good idea to take pictures of them every few months so that you have reference pictures should you ever need them. It can be difficult to notice day-to-day changes in your moles, and having documented pictures of your moles can bring you peace of mind. You should also find a dermatologist you can see at least once each year for periodic checkups, regardless of whether or not you have moles.

Problems Urinating

While it can be difficult to bring up sensitive issues with your doctor, it’s important to share your symptoms so that they can help you get the care you need. If you’ve had difficulty urinating, or your stream isn’t as consistent as it once was, then you need to schedule an appointment with our men’s health clinic as soon as possible. While prostate cancer is always a possible cause of bladder problems in men, it’s more likely that you have a urinary tract infection or an inflamed prostate, which can both be treated quickly by a men’s health professional.

Low Libido

As we mentioned in the previous section, some symptoms are hard to discuss. Many men who are struggling with their sex drive feel frustrated and alienated, and the last thing they want is even more embarrassment. It’s important to remember that your physician began their career in medicine not to judge people, but to help them live healthy lives and fix problems quickly. If you’ve noticed a sudden decrease in your sex drive, low testosterone may be the culprit. Our men’s health clinic specializes in affordable, fast-acting testosterone replacement therapy that can help you return to normal, so don’t wait another day to get the care you need.
