Common Men’s Health Conditions
Men have many of the same health concerns as women—heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer and depression—but they tend to pay less attention to their health than women and are often more hindered by societal norms. Men are also more likely to drink alcohol and use tobacco, make risky choices and skip check-ups.

Some of the top health conditions that affect men are:

That’s why it is so important for men to get regular check-ups, know which preventive measures to take and be aware of the symptoms related to these conditions.

Awareness around men’s mental health is increasing and many of the old taboos are being broken. Now is the perfect time for men to open up about their emotions and be aware of the symptoms related to these conditions.
