Men’s Health Services
Health and wellness are a priority at Dragonfly Primary Care. We offer comprehensive men's health services for all ages, with the goal of promoting reproductive health through preventive care like annual checkups or screenings, as well as education about common male conditions.
Following are a few men’s health services we provide:
The prostate is a small, walnut-sized gland that is located just below the bladder in men. The prostate produces a fluid that helps to nourish and transport sperm.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men and it is important to get screened for it on a regular basis. Nearly one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
There are two main types of prostate screening: a digital rectal exam and a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. During a digital rectal exam, the doctor inserts a gloved finger into the rectum and feels for any bumps or abnormalities. The PSA test measures the level of PSAs in the blood. A high level of PSAs may be an indicator of prostate cancer.
Prostate screening is an important part of maintaining men's health, and it is recommended that all men over 50 get screened on a regular basis.
STI screenings are a crucial part of one's health. STIs, or sexually transmitted infections, can be both uncomfortable and dangerous if left untreated. Fortunately, there are several STI screenings that are specially designed to help detect STIs in men. These STI screenings may involve blood tests, urine samples, or swabs from the penis.
The results of these STI screenings can provide men with essential information about their health and whether they have any STIs that need to be treated.
With regular STI screening, it is possible to spot potential issues early on before they have a chance to cause serious health problems.
Blood tests for hormone levels/imbalances in men can provide vital information about a man's health. By testing for levels of testosterone, estrogen, and other hormones, providers can gain a better understanding of a man's overall health.
Blood tests can also help to identify imbalances that may be causing health problems. For example, low testosterone levels can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, and a decreased sex drive. By testing hormone levels, health professionals can make sure that men are getting the appropriate treatment they need.
Sexual dysfunction is a common problem in many men. It can include difficulties with sexual desire, arousal, ejaculation, and orgasm. Sexual dysfunction can be caused by physical or psychological factors or a combination of both including:
- Low testosterone levels
Treatment for sexual dysfunction will vary depending on the underlying cause. Although sexual dysfunction is a complex issue, with proper diagnosis and treatment, it is often possible to greatly improve sexual function and satisfaction.
