What happens during men’s health exams?

When you arrive at CHW Cares for a men’s health exam, you often have the following:

Vital signs check

Your primary care specialist evaluates your body weight and checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs to assess your overall health and wellness.

Medical history review

Your provider discusses your personal and family medical history. They ask about medications you take, symptoms you may have, past diagnoses, and disease history. Your primary care specialist answers questions or concerns you have about your health.

Physical exam

During a physical examination, your provider evaluates your throat, breathing, heartbeat, neck, abdomen, reflexes, and more. They offer prostate exams and vision, hearing, and mental health assessments when needed.

Diagnostic testing

Based on your symptoms, lifestyle, and disease risk factors, your provider may suggest you complete certain diagnostic tests. Examples include blood tests, urine tests, asthma or allergy testing, heart function tests, X-rays, and biopsies. 

Treatment as needed

If you have an illness or disease or are interested in vaccinations, weight loss, or hormone therapy, your CHW Cares specialist personalizes a treatment just for you. They might recommend lifestyle changes, dietary supplements, medications, physical therapy, or other treatments. 

When should I schedule men’s health visits?

Unless otherwise instructed by the CHW Cares team, schedule men’s health visits every year. You can also book an appointment if you experience new or unusual symptoms or have concerns about your health.
