Welcome Male Awareness Foundation
Throughout most of the year, men’s health is rarely discussed.
These are some of the main reasons behind the creation of the Male Awareness Foundation.
The mission of the Male Awareness Foundation is simple – to reduce the number of men dying prematurely. Since 2014 Male Awareness Foundation has been trying to help.
Male Awareness Foundation Want To help health projects around the world that support men’s health research and efforts that transform the way health services reach and support men.
These are important endeavors considering that close to 60% of American men do not see a doctor regularly unless they are already seriously ill.
In a survey from 2019, 20% of men admitted to not being honest with their doctor when they do in fact see them. The top reasons for doing so were an embarrassment, resistance to being told to change their habits/lifestyle, and not being ready to face or know their diagnosis.
Celebrated each year during June, Men’s Health Month brings awareness to the health issues all men face. Hosted by Men’s Health Network since 1992, the month is dedicated to enriching men’s health and wellness through a broad spectrum of national screening and educational campaigns.
Men’s Health Month is an annual observance aimed at raising awareness of preventable health problems and encouraging early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.
It’s important as a senior man to brush up on your health facts, listen to your body, and be sure to get regular checkups. Not only will you live longer, you’ll have a better quality of life.
General Health – Even if you don’t feel sick if it important to see your doctor regularly and schedule annual exams. Here are some of the screening tests recommended by Johns Hopkins for men 65+:
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm
- Blood pressure
- Colorectal Cancer
- Diabetes mellitus, type 2
- Lipid disorders
You can be in good shape, and also have heart disease or cancer. If something’s wrong with your heart, you might not always know. Luckily, today’s technology can help Doctors detect heart disease and cancer long before symptoms show up. There are tests your Doctor can suggest. You could go for years without realizing you have clogged arteries that leave you a heartbeat away from a heart attack or cancerous cells or masses that can kill you. In the early stage of heart disease, symptoms may be absent or easily missed. Even a full-blown heart attack may not have the sudden, severe chest pain that you see in the movies. Some heart attacks cause symptoms so mild that people mistake them for indigestion. Many cancers are silent killers as well, and early detection is key in surviving these deadly diseases.
Take charge of your life by making changes such as eating a healthy diet and getting regular check-ups and screenings.
A health checklist for men will vary by age group, but tracking basic health measures like blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) are important at any age. Use the information on this site to help you stay healthy. Learn about which screening tests to get, whether you need medicines to prevent diseases, and steps you can take for good health.
Stay Healthy at Any Age
Get the Screenings You Need! Screenings are tests that look for diseases before you have symptoms. Blood pressure checks and tests for high cholesterol are examples of screenings. You can get some screenings, such as blood pressure readings, in your doctor’s office. Others such as a colonoscopy, for example, a test for colorectal cancer, require special equipment, so you may need to see a specialist for these exams. After a screening test, ask when you will see the results and who you should talk to about them.
