What can I expect during a men’s health exam?

However, you can expect your specialist to review your medical and medication history, as well as your symptoms and health concerns, if any. Your specialist also conducts a comprehensive physical exam to assess your health, along with specific health screenings.

After your exam, your specialist creates a personalized treatment plan for you that may include diet and lifestyle modifications, as well as hormone replacement therapy, if needed.
