Men are physiologically different from women and hence have some health issues that are unique to their sex. It is important that as a man you understand the medical terms of the special health concerns for men. This can ensure you lead a better and healthy life. It may probably even prevent a disease because what you don't know could hurt you. Given below are a few of the medical terms that impact men’s health and a brief description of what they mean.
Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy or BPH: The prostate is a group of glands under the bladder at the base of the penis. The prostate wraps around the urethra or the tube that brings the urine from the bladder. The prostate produces semen. As men age the prostate gets larger. It is normal that the gland gets larger, but sometimes it gets too large and begins to put pressure on the urethra and causes the inability to urinate on demand.
Prostatitis: Prostatitis is an infection of the prostate which can cause burning while urinating, fever, abdominal pain and blood in urine. This has become a common affliction for men as young as 20 or 30. The infection can usually be treated with antibiotics.
Libido: A person’s sexual drive or interest in sex.
Erectile dysfunction: Due in general terms to insufficient blood flow to the penis, erectile dysfunction is the inability to get an erection, or a firm enough erection, or to maintain one long enough for intercourse.
Impotence: Unable to get or achieve an erection.
Low Testosterone Levels: If you are having erectile dysfunction or you have a low libido or sex drive you could have low testosterone. Low testosterone levels can also lead to hair loss, weight gain, tiredness, problems sleeping and depression among other things. You can get your testosterone blood level tested by a doctor if you are having any unusual symptoms.
