June is Men’s Health Month, and that means a lot of important subject come up that make men uncomfortable. Because men are less likely to visit the doctor’s office for various reasons, they are more likely to get diagnosed with prostate cancer when it’s too late to easily cure or prevent it. The Urology Group of New Mexico (UGNM) is ready to examine men at all stages of life with its comprehensive urology center and dedicated staff of doctors and surgeons. From the age of thirty and older, examinations become more and more important and the numbers of things to check increases over time.
In observance of Men’s Health Month, Dr. Marc Siegel recently stated on Fox News that men are having a hard time going to the doctor for rectal exams because they feel that everything is alright as long as they don’t see any signs of distress. His message to both men and women was to pressure men to go to the doctor and make sure they really know what’s going on inside of them. A lot of genetic testing is being done to predict the possibility of the disease before it even develops, based on the males in a man’s family and their experience with colonoscopies.
When a doctor finds the disease in a young man it is often a more aggressive case than with older men. But if it is detected at a younger age, the problem is much easier to resolve because it is in a more isolated region. A skilled surgeon will be able to eradicate the disease before it spreads to other regions. UGNM has stated that it’s been working more closely with the Prostate Cancer Support Center of New Mexico, and they currently have four prostate cancer projects that are practicing; two drug tests as well as two registries.
The UGNM is prepared for any situation in this department, and they are currently pursuing an intensive study that will aid those affected with catheters. Their research is leading to a cleaner and easier use of catheters that does not require as much frequent cleaning and replacing. The Urology Group has been able to focus on these two important and widespread issues that affect men within the state of New Mexico.
Treatments are becoming more effective, with some men living 20 years and longer after diagnosis. But every year, more and more men are diagnosed with the disease. There is still much to be done, especially in the areas of patient education and research to develop more effective ways of diagnosis and treatment.
