Synopsis:
The life expectancy gap between men and women has narrowed in recent years, but men still face many health disadvantages. Men are more likely than women to smoke and drink, engage in risky behaviors, and put off checkups and regular preventative care. Men also face a number of disorders unique to their gender, including prostate cancer, penile and testicular disorders, low testosterone, and sex-linked genetic disorders. Men's Health Concerns Sourcebook, Sixth Edition discusses health issues that disproportionately affect men. It explains how men can help protect themselves and preserve their health with self- examinations, vaccinations, screening tests, and lifestyle choices. It provides facts about the specific diseases and injuries that comprise the list of leading causes of death in men and explains how men can avoid them or lessen their impact. Detailed information about sexual and reproductive concerns, prostate disorders, substance use, mental health concerns, and other disorders affecting men is included. Lifestyle choices, nutrition and physical activity for men are also covered. A glossary of related terms and a list of resources provide further help and information. The book is divided into parts and chapters where parts focus on broad areas of interest and chapters are devoted to single topics within a part.
