Men's health

Singapore men's health screening is an important part of staying healthy and maintaining a good quality of life.

Regular preventive health screenings assess men’s overall wellbeing, allowing them to take action if they notice changes such as excessive fatigue or weight gain, which could be indicative of an underlying medical condition.

Here are some common men’s health conditions in Singapore:

Prostate Cancer: Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer among men in Singapore. According to the Singapore Cancer Society, prostate cancer was the second most commonly diagnosed male cancer in Singapore, with 5,875 new cases between 2015 -2019. Regular screenings are important for early detection of any changes in the prostate that may signify a more serious condition.

Erectile Dysfunction (ED): ED is a common health issue among men and can be caused by physical or psychological factors, such as diabetes and stress. It is actually a common condition that affects millions of men worldwide. In Singapore, every 1 in 2 men would have suffered from ED at some point in their lifetime. A doctor may recommend lifestyle changes or medications to help manage this condition.

Premature Ejaculation (PE): PE is one of the most common sexual dysfunctions, affecting almost 30% of men in Singapore. This condition can be caused by psychological issues and is treatable with medication or therapy. It’s important to talk to a doctor if this issue persists, as it may cause difficulties in sexual relationships. There are many potential physical and psychological causes of PE. Physical causes can include medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, and prostate disease, as well as the use of certain medications or illegal drugs. Psychological factors such as stress, depression, guilt, and performance anxiety may also be responsible for premature ejaculation in some people. In rare cases, a hormonal disorder may be the underlying cause of this condition.

Hair loss: Hair loss, which includes alopecia, affects both men and women, but it can be especially distressing for men due to how common it is. It is often an inherited condition that runs in families, and the most common type of hair loss among men is male pattern baldness (MPB). There are other factors such as age, hormonal imbalances, or changes in the hair cycle. This involves the receding of the hairline at the temples and thinning on top of the head, which may eventually lead to complete baldness. It is estimated that the majority of men in Singapore experience some level of hair thinning or baldness by the age of 50.

These are just some of the most common health conditions affecting men in Singapore. It is always best to consult a doctor if you have any concerns about your own health and wellbeing. Taking preventative measures such as avoiding smoking, eating healthily, and exercising regularly can help reduce the risk of developing these conditions or improve their symptoms if they do arise.

Men’s health is just as important as women’s, and there are many common men’s health issues that can affect men, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, prostate cancer, and hair loss. The key to managing these conditions is early detection and proper treatment, so it’s important for men to regularly visit their doctor for checkups and look out for any signs or symptoms of underlying medical issues. Don’t take your health for granted – be proactive about keeping yourself healthy!
