Mens Health Q&A

What are the leading men’s health problems?

Health problems men often suffer from include:

Erectile dysfunction (ED)

ED is the inability to achieve and/or keep an erection for sexual activity. It can be caused by various things, including:

  • Anxiety or depression
  • Excess body weight
  • Smoking
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Emotional problems
  • Low testosterone (male sex hormone) levels
  • Plaque buildup

Plaque forms from excessive cholesterol in your blood. It builds up slowly, gradually reducing the space inside the blood vessels and restricting blood flow. Without an adequate blood flow, your penis can’t maintain erectness.

Low testosterone

Low testosterone affects many male characteristics, like hair growth, muscle mass, energy levels, and libido (sex drive).

Prostate disorders

The prostate gland produces semen that mixes with sperm from the testicles when men ejaculate. Conditions like benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer can cause enlargement that affects urinary function.

Diagnosing your condition is one of the primary care services SoCal Medical Center provides.

How does my doctor diagnose men’s health problems?

Diagnosis involves a thorough physical exam, medical history review, and discussion about your symptoms. You might also need blood tests.

You might feel reluctant to discuss intimate conditions like ED. But be assured that the SoCal Medical Center team treats everyone with compassion and respect. They’re used to dealing with men’s health problems and will put you at ease.

Which treatments help with men’s health problems?

Innovative treatments the SoCal Medical Center team offers for men’s health problems include:

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy is a safe, noninvasive treatment for ED. It uses sound waves to promote natural blood flow to your penis without drugs, invasive procedures, or surgery. Low-intensity sound waves pulse through your erectile tissues, clearing out plaque from the blood vessels to encourage better blood flow.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP therapy requires a painless penile injection.

In addition to its effects on ED, PRP therapy can also increase penis size and sensitivity.

T-Shot

The T-Shot is a testosterone injection that restores your hormone levels to normal. This increases your energy and drive, helps you sleep better, restores your libido, and enables you to regain muscle and think more clearly.

Shockwave, PRP, and T-Shot treatments stimulate growth-factor release and activate dormant stem cells. This improves healing and tissue generation.
