Men's Health Q & A

What are the Most Common Men’s Health Issues? 

Some common men’s health issues that the team of board-certified urologists at the Associated Urologists of North Carolina deal with on a routine basis include:

  • Erectile Dysfunction: Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and sustain an erection during sexual intercourse.
  • Peyronie's Disease: This condition is caused by scar tissue, called plaque, that forms inside your penis. Peyronie’s disease can lead to a bent, as opposed to straight, erect penis.
  • Chronic Prostatitis: Prostatitis refers to an inflammation of the prostate. It’s considered chronic if the inflammation continues for three months or longer. Chronic prostatitis is often painful, affecting sexual function and the ability to urinate normally.
  • Low Testosterone: Testosterone is a hormone produced by the testicles. When a man’s testosterone production drops, it can produce symptoms like fatigue or low sex drive.


What are the Risk Factors for Men’s Health Issues? 

It’s not always easy to identify specific causes for each men’s health issue, but certain risk factors often play a role, including: 

  • Aging
  • Lifestyle habits, e.g., lack of exercise or substance abuse
  • Environmental factors
  • Stress
  • Family history of men’s health issues


The best ways to reduce your risk of men’s health issues are routine medical visits for preventative checkups and screenings and healthy lifestyle choices, such as proper nutrition and regular exercise. Depending on your age and medical history, the team at the Associated Urologists of North Carolina can recommend how often you should come in.
