Men’s Health FAQ

When is the right age a male should start seeing a GP?
The right age for a male to start seeing a General Practitioner (GP) for regular check-ups and healthcare guidance typically begins in late teens.

As men age, it becomes increasingly important to establish a regular relationship with a general practitioner. The frequency is influenced by one’s family medical history, especially concerning major health issues that affect men, like cardiovascular disease.

What is the importance of preventative men's health checks and how do they contribute to early detection and management of common medical conditions in men?

Preventative men’s health checks are of paramount importance as they play a pivotal role in the early detection and management of common medical conditions in men. These check-ups offer several significant benefits:


  1. Early Detection: Regular health check-ups can detect medical conditions at an early stage when they have a better prognosis. This includes conditions such as prostate issues, high blood pressure, heart disease, urinary symptoms, erectile problems, and mental health concerns.
  2. Risk Assessment: Check-ups help assess an individual’s risk factors for various diseases. This assessment considers factors like family history, lifestyle choices, and personal health history, enabling GPs to tailor recommendations accordingly.
  3. Preventive Care: An opportunity for proactive measures to prevent potential health issues. They allow for discussions on lifestyle choices, such as diet and exercise, and guidance on making healthier decisions to reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions.
  4. Holistic Approach: Men’s health checks encompass a comprehensive evaluation of physical and mental well-being. This approach considers both the physical health markers and the emotional aspects of health, contributing to a more complete management of one’s health.
  5. Personalised Recommendations: Consulting with a GP during these check-ups allows for tailored health recommendations. Given the abundance of information available, personalised guidance ensures that individuals can make informed decisions that align with their specific needs and goals for improvement.
  6. Long-Term Health: By engaging in preventative men’s health checks, individuals can better manage their health throughout their lifespan.
