Why is Men's Health Different?

Men’s health differs from women’s because men face unique health challenges and concerns. Men are more likely to experience certain health conditions, such as prostate cancer, heart disease, and erectile dysfunction. They may also be less likely to seek medical care for their health concerns, which can lead to undiagnosed and untreated health conditions.

At CoreMed Plus, we understand the importance of addressing men’s health concerns and providing specialized care. We recognize that men’s health requires a personalized approach to care, considering their needs and health history. Our healthcare professionals are trained to provide comprehensive care for men’s health concerns, including prostate health, sexual dysfunction, low testosterone, and more.

As a specialized healthcare provider, we offer a range of services that are tailored to men’s unique health needs. Our services include hormone replacement therapy, sexual health evaluations, erectile dysfunction treatment, prostate cancer screenings, and more. We also offer comprehensive wellness services, such as nutrition counseling, fitness evaluations, and stress management techniques, to help men maintain optimal health and well-being.

CoreMed Plus is committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to help men achieve their health goals. We understand the importance of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of men’s health concerns, and we strive to provide our patients with the best possible care. If you or someone you know is dealing with men’s health concerns, contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about our specialized services.

What are the Most Common Conditions That Affect Men?

Several health conditions are more common in men than in women. Here are some of the most common health conditions that affect men:

  1. Cardiovascular Disease: Cardiovascular disease, which includes conditions such as coronary artery disease and high blood pressure, is the leading cause of death in men. Men are more likely than women to develop cardiovascular disease at a younger age.
  2. Prostate Cancer: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, with over 190,000 new cases diagnosed annually in the United States. Men over the age of 50 are at the highest risk of developing prostate cancer.
  3. Lung Cancer: Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with smoking being the leading cause. Men are more likely than women to develop and die from lung cancer.
  4. Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction is a common condition that affects men of all ages. Various factors, including stress, anxiety, and health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, can cause it.
  5. Depression and Anxiety: Depression and anxiety are common mental health conditions affecting men at any age. However, men are often less likely to seek help for these conditions than women.
  6. Diabetes: Men are more likely than women to develop type 2 diabetes, which is often caused by a combination of genetic and lifestyle factors.
  7. Testicular Cancer: Testicular cancer is a rare but highly treatable form of cancer that most commonly affects men between the ages of 15 and 35.

Men must be aware of their health risks and seek medical attention if they are experiencing any symptoms or concerns. Regular check-ups, healthy lifestyle choices, and early detection and treatment of health conditions can help men maintain optimal health and well-being.

Services We Provide for Men's Healthcare

At CoreMed Plus, we offer a range of services specific to men’s health. Our healthcare professionals are trained to provide comprehensive care for men’s health concerns, including:

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for men specifically involves replacing testosterone, a hormone that decreases in production as men age. Low testosterone levels can cause symptoms such as low libido, fatigue, mood changes, and reduced muscle mass.

Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the testicles, and it plays a vital role in maintaining male characteristics and overall health. As men age, testosterone production gradually decreases, leading to a range of symptoms collectively known as “low testosterone” or “low T.”

HRT for men typically involves replacing testosterone through various methods, such as testosterone injections, gels, patches, or pellets. The method of administration will depend on the individual’s health status, personal preferences, and the type of hormones being replaced.

HRT can be an effective treatment option for men experiencing symptoms of low testosterone levels, such as low libido, fatigue, mood changes, and decreased muscle mass. It can help alleviate these symptoms and improve the quality of life for men experiencing low testosterone levels.

HRT is not suitable for everyone and may carry risks and side effects. A healthcare professional should only prescribe it and should be closely monitored. The decision to use HRT should be based on an individual’s health status, medical history, and personal preferences and should be made in consultation with a healthcare professional.

In addition to HRT, lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and stress management techniques can also help improve testosterone levels and overall health for men. At CoreMed Plus, we offer comprehensive services for men’s health, including hormone replacement therapy, nutrition counseling, fitness evaluations, and stress management techniques, to help men maintain optimal health and well-being.

Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects men of all ages. It is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. ED can have a range of physical and psychological causes, such as diabetes, heart disease, stress, anxiety, and depression.

At CoreMed Plus, we offer a range of treatment options for erectile dysfunction, depending on the condition’s underlying cause. Here are some of the common treatment options for ED:

  1. Medications: Medications such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), and vardenafil (Levitra) are commonly prescribed to treat ED. These medications increase blood flow to the penis, which helps to achieve and maintain an erection. They are typically taken 30 minutes to an hour before sexual activity and are effective for up to 4-5 hours.
  2. Penile Injections: Penile injections involve injecting medication directly into the penis to improve blood flow and help achieve an erection. The medication is typically a combination of alprostadil and papaverine, and the injection is administered before sexual activity. Penile injections are effective for up to an hour.
  3. Vacuum Devices: Vacuum devices are used to create a vacuum around the penis, which helps to draw blood into the penis and create an erection. The device consists of a cylinder that is placed over the penis and a pump that creates a vacuum. A constriction ring is then placed at the base of the penis to maintain the erection.
  4. Surgery: Surgery is typically a last resort treatment option for ED and is only recommended in severe cases. Surgical options include penile implants or vascular surgery to improve blood flow to the penis.

At CoreMed Plus, our healthcare professionals will work with you to determine the best treatment option for your individual needs. We understand that ED can be a sensitive and personal issue, and we provide compassionate, confidential care to help you achieve optimal sexual health and well-being. 

Sexual Health Evaluations

At CoreMed Plus, we offer comprehensive sexual health evaluations to help diagnose and treat a range of sexual health conditions. Our healthcare professionals are trained to provide confidential, compassionate care to help you achieve optimal sexual health and well-being. Here are some of the common sexual health evaluations we offer at Core Med Plus:

  1. Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects men of all ages. It is the inability to achieve or maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. Our healthcare professionals can help diagnose and treat ED through various treatment options, including medications, penile injections, vacuum devices, and surgery.
  2. Premature Ejaculation: Premature ejaculation is a common condition that affects men of all ages. It is the inability to control ejaculation during sexual activity, leading to an unsatisfactory sexual experience. Our healthcare professionals can help diagnose and treat premature ejaculation through various treatment options, including behavioral techniques and medication.
  3. Low Libido: Low libido, or a lack of sexual desire, is a common condition affecting both men and women. Our healthcare professionals can help diagnose and treat low libido through various treatment options, including hormone replacement therapy, lifestyle changes, and stress management techniques.
  4. Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs): Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that are spread through sexual contact. Our healthcare professionals can provide testing and treatment for various STIs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, and HIV.
  5. Contraception: Contraception is a method of preventing pregnancy. Our healthcare professionals can provide information and counseling on a range of contraception options, including condoms, oral contraceptives, intrauterine devices (IUDs), and sterilization.

Prostate Health

Prostate health is an essential aspect of men’s health. The prostate is a small gland that is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It produces a fluid that is a component of semen and helps to nourish and transport sperm. As men age, the prostate can enlarge, leading to various health issues. Here are some of the common prostate health concerns:

  1. Prostate Cancer: Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. It typically grows slowly and may not cause symptoms until it has reached an advanced stage. Regular prostate cancer screenings, such as a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test and a digital rectal exam (DRE), can help detect prostate cancer early.
  2. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH): Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a common condition that affects men as they age. It is the enlargement of the prostate gland, which can lead to urinary problems such as frequent urination, difficulty starting and stopping urination, and weak urine flow. Treatment options for BPH include medication and surgery.
  3. Prostatitis: Prostatitis is the inflammation of the prostate gland, which can cause pain and discomfort in the pelvic area, difficulty urinating, and flu-like symptoms. Treatment options for prostatitis depend on the underlying cause and can include antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications.

Maintaining good prostate health involves regular check-ups, a healthy diet, and exercise. Here are some tips for maintaining good prostate health:

  1. Get Regular Prostate Cancer Screenings: Regular prostate cancer screenings can help detect prostate cancer early and improve treatment outcomes.
  2. Eat a Healthy Diet: Eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help promote good prostate health.
  3. Exercise Regularly: Regular exercise can help improve prostate health and reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer.
  4. Limit Alcohol and Caffeine: Limiting alcohol and caffeine intake can help reduce the risk of developing prostate problems.

CoreMed Plus offers comprehensive services for men’s health, including prostate cancer screenings, nutrition counseling, fitness evaluations, and stress management techniques, to help men maintain optimal prostate health and overall well-being.

    Dr. Mark Richter Bio

    I grew up in Florida as the oldest of five sons. After earning my degree from the University of Florida, I pursued my medical education in the Dominican Republic. In 1988, I began my Family Practice Residency at the “old” Pontiac General Hospital. I have been providing medical care to the same community since 1991, first in Waterford and later at our current location in White Lake, where I continue to practice today. I take pride in being board certified by the American Academy of Family Physicians and remain committed to Primary Care. I am passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle, including a proper “balanced” diet, exercise, exposure to healthy outdoor activities, and achieving work-life balance. I married my Medical School Sweetheart, Barbara, and we are fortunate to have two adult children and a granddaughter. We have been residents of Oakland County since 1988 and enjoy all that Michigan has to offer.
