Health Tip of the Week: Health Screening

healthscreeningJune Is Men’s Health Month, and with that in mind, the tip this week is:

Get screened!

With Father’s Day coming up, it’s that time of year to be discussing men’s health issues and how they can impact you and your family. Whether it’s you, your dad, your brother, your husband, or your granddad, it’s important to be aware of these issues as well as finding out risk factors and getting screened or tested.

When it comes to men’s health, some of the big concerns relate to the prostate, testicular cancer, heart disease, and blood pressure, but those are by no means the only things to get screened for. High cholesterol, respiratory health, depression, obesity, tobacco use, and many other conditions need attention as well.

There are health fairs and events across the country throughout the month of June specifically to bring awareness to men’s health issues, and to offer screenings and additional information. Check out the website for Men’s Health Month to learn more about how these issues can affect your family, and to find more information about events near you.
