    Cardiovascular health: a major challenge for men
    Cardiovascular disease (affecting the heart and blood vessels) is one of the most common and deadly health problems in Canada. In fact, it is estimated that every seven minutes a Canadian succumbs to cardiovascular diseases, such as myocardial infarction ( heart attack).) or a stroke. Although these disorders can affect women as much as men, we know that they can suffer younger than women. Interesting statistic: 28% of Canadian men will die as a result of a health problem of this nature. There is food for thought, do not you think? Some factors may predispose a person of any sex to have a cardiovascular problem; examples include: poor diet or high-fat diet, sedentary lifestyle (lack of exercise), smoking, stress, overweight or obesity, family history of heart disease and certain illnesses (eg. : diabetes, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, etc.). To reduce their cardiovascular risk, men have an advantage in making certain changes in order to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

    Erectile dysfunction
    Erectile dysfunction is a very worrying condition for many men. It is estimated that after 40 years, about one in three men experience erectile difficulties. Sometimes, such a problem is explained by so-called organic causes, for example, an illness or the taking of certain drugs. It can also be explained by psychological causes, such as fatigue, stress, performance anxiety or psychological trauma. It is not uncommon that erectile dysfunction results from the addition of several factors. Regardless of the cause or causes of erectile dysfunction, it is often a source of distress for men who face it. Fortunately, solutions exist! It is unfortunate that some men are reluctant to talk about their sexual difficulties to a health professional because the latter could be of great help. If you are a man and have sexual difficulties, do not stay in the shadows; instead, go looking for solutions.

Your pharmacist can tell you what treatments are available for erectile dysfunction. He is also able to tell you if the medications you are taking can cause such a problem or at least contribute to it. For more information about erectile dysfunction, read the text Erectile dysfunction solutions.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia
The prostate, a small gland located under the bladder, is part of the human urinary system. It surrounds the urethra, the canal that drains urine from the bladder. With age, the prostate can increase in volume and pressure on the urethra, making urination (urinating) more and more difficult. This can lead to a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which can increase with age. This condition is caused by the normal aging process. The symptoms of BPH rarely appear before the age of 40, reaching nearly 50% of men aged 60 and 80% of those aged 80 and over. The most common symptom of BPH is the difficulty in urinating. Other symptoms may be present such as incomplete emptying of the bladder after urinating, urge to urinate, and low urine flow. BPH is not a dangerous disease, but it can be bothersome. If you experience symptoms related to your ability to urinate, talk to your doctor. Your pharmacist can also help you find out about the medicines available to fight BPH and how to protect yourself. For more information on this topic, read the text on Your pharmacist can also help you find out about the medicines available to fight BPH and how to protect yourself.

Prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is a more common type of cancer than imaginable; it is the most common cancer among men in Canada. It is also the third leading cause of cancer death among Canadians. In general, it evolves slowly and can often be cured or treated successfully. The faster it is detected, the better the response to treatment and the chances of recovery. Screening for prostate cancer can be done using two complementary tests. First, the doctor can perform a digital rectal examination. Then, a blood test can detect the elevation of APS, that is to say, the prostate-specific antigen. It is possible to make some lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer, like quitting and cutting down on fatty foods. Sometimes men with prostate cancer experience symptoms, sometimes not. Typical symptoms may resemble those of other conditions, such as BPH. In addition to urinary symptoms, other worrying symptoms may include pain during ejaculation, blood in the urine or sperm, or back pain. Visit your doctor regularly to discuss your risk of prostate cancer and screening and prevention.
