The GPs at EK Medical understand the importance of improving men’s health outcomes. It is a well known fact that men do not visit their doctor as often as women. The team at EK Medical work hard to proactively encourage men to visit the clinic in a timely and regular manner. We support our men to support themselves.
Heart Disease and Blood Pressure Checks
Men can reduce the risk of Heart Disease and high blood pressure by ceasing smoking, eating a healthy diet and regular exercise. EK Medical can assist with a GP Management Plan to support your progress.
Full Health Check
Men aged between 45 and 49 are eligible for a Medicare funded full health check.
Prostate and Testicular Health
Men between the ages of 19 and 35 are recommended to regularly examine their testes for Testicular Cancer.
Men aged between 40 and 60 are recommended to undergo a screening for Prostate Cancer, especially those with a family history of cancer.
Erectile dysfunction is more common than you might think. One in five men aged over 40 are affected by this common condition. It is important to raise this issue with your GP as it may be a sign of other illnesses such as diabetes, depression or heart disease.
Men’s Mental Health
Depression effects one in six men in Australia. Young men are four times more likely to commit suicide than young women. If you are going through personal challenges, you can get help. Book an appointment with EK Medical.
