Men’s Health

Take a moMENt and do something for yourself and your health

A recent study shows that when questioned, 72 percent of men said they would rather do household chores, even cleaning a bathroom, than make an appointment to see a doctor. It’s no surprise that men don’t regularly see a doctor, either for a wellness visit or to address a specific symptom. The reasons are many, but LCMC Health is here to encourage you not to be in that number. We offer you a comprehensive overview of screening tests and vaccinations that are important to your health.

If you are among those who have ignored your health for too long, we encourage you to schedule a wellness checkup; your life may depend on it.

Heart and vascular care

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, and Louisiana ranks among the worst states for heart disease and stroke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the death rate of men 35+ in Louisiana was 523 per 100,000 men; the national average is 405.

Get ahead of Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer—cancer that starts in the colon or rectum—is one of the most common gastrointestinal cancers. It’s also highly treatable if diagnosed early. That’s where screening can help.

Talk with your PCP about when you should start colorectal cancer screening. Adults at average risk for colorectal cancer should start having regular screenings at age 45, but you may need to start earlier if you have risk factors. At LCMC Health, we offer several screening options, including colonoscopy. Colonoscopy is the only form of colorectal cancer screening in which gastroenterologists can find and remove precancerous growths called polyps in one procedure.
