Whether you need a physical exam for sports or work, the Men’s Vitality Center provides convenient physical exams to men of all ages in a comfortable, friendly environment.
Some men avoid physicals unless they absolutely have to get them. However, knowing what to expect during your physical exam will certainly ease your mind and make things go smoothly. Here are a just a few thing that men can expect during their next physical exam at the Men’s Vitality Center.
- Testicular exam. You may receive a testicular exam in order to check for lumps that may be cancer or other harmful conditions that affect the testicles.
- Hernia exam. Also known as the “turn your head and cough” exam, the hernia exam checks for any weaknesses in the abdominal wall between the intestines and scrotum.
- Prostate exam. Your physician will also want to perform a prostate exam after you’re 50 years old, if your insurance company requests it to qualify for Testosterone Replacement Therapy, or if you symptoms consistent with a prostate issue. Your doctor will need to feel the prostate to evaluate its size and to inspect for any suspicious areas around and on the prostate.
Your physical exam will also emphasize steps for disease prevention. These exams are a great opportunity for your physician to take a full comprehensive note of what’s going on with your body.
As they say, knowledge is power. Remain knowledgeable about your health. Schedule an appointment to see your medical provider at the Men’s Vitality Center today.
