Men's Health Q & A

What health issues affect men?

Though many men’s health issues involve the male reproductive system, men’s health means more than just urology. Conditions like prostate cancer and low testosterone are specific to men, but beyond that, many conditions affect men differently than women or at higher rates, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease, which men are more likely to develop than women, and at a younger age
  • Melanoma, a form of skin cancer, which is more likely to be fatal in men than women's depression, which is less likely to be diagnosed in men than women
  • Alcoholism and alcohol-related illnesses, which are more common among men than women 

Many men are at higher risk of preventable illnesses because they engage in risky behaviors and don’t seek medical treatment. The reasons men avoid going to the doctor and endanger their health at higher rates than women are varied and complicated. Regardless, it’s important to recognize that you can lead a longer, healthier life as long as you pay attention to your physical and emotional wellbeing.

What do urologists do?

Urologists are physicians who specialize in diseases affecting the urinary tract in both men and women and specifically the male reproductive system. As a urologist, Dr. Roberts is experienced in diagnosing and treating:

  • Erectile dysfunction and male infertility
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate)
  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney stones
  • Low testosterone
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Urinary incontinence

Your reproductive and urinary health often provide clues to your overall health. For example, erectile dysfunction may result from unmanaged diabetes or heart disease, and kidney stones are often a sign you need to follow a healthier diet. Dr. Roberts plays a central role in your medical treatment by supporting you to make healthy choices and refers you to other specialists as needed.

What can I do to stay healthy?

You can prevent many illnesses and feel your best day to day if you take charge of your health. That includes:

  • Seeing a primary care doctor and specialists
  • Getting regular exercise
  • Seeking mental health care when you’re struggling
  • Sleeping 7-8 hours a night
  • Quitting smoking and drinking less
