The Ultimate Checklist of Routine Screenings for Men

The Ultimate Checklist of Routine Screenings for Men


06/17/20

Because the situation surrounding COVID-19 is constantly evolving, some information may not be up to date. Stay informed by following information from your local officials and by visiting the CDC website.

It’s well known that men tend to put off going to the doctor when they’re sick. Imagine how much more unnecessary they consider an appointment when they feel perfectly healthy. But many serious conditions in early stages don’t present symptoms — until they begin causing other problems or progress into emergencies. That’s why it’s important to keep up with routine checkups and screenings.

Important Health Screenings for Men

Based on your family history and personal risk factors, you may need to begin certain screenings earlier.

Ask your doctor which other screenings you should consider based on your symptoms and risk factors. Schedule a televisit or in-person appointment with your St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network primary care physician to learn where you should start.
