A male well-check is an essential form of disease and illness prevention and should be given to all men annually. It is very important for patients to visit their physician regularly, even if they feel healthy. A well-check consists of a number of different tests and examinations to gather an overall analysis of the patient's health. This procedure will help the doctor and patient discover any health concerns and together create and implement a plan for a better, healthier lifestyle. The Plano, TX family doctors at Village Health Partners provide male well-checks throughout the year and can help patients maintain their health year-round.
About the Procedure
A male well-check is a non-invasive check-up that is composed of a series of tests and examinations to discover a patient’s overall health status. During this check-up, administered tests include those for blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, heart disease, and diabetes. Patients will also be screened for testicular and prostate cancer. It is recommended that older male patients, 40 years and up, schedule their PSA (prostate-specific antigen) test at the same time as their well-check. During their well-check patients will also undergo a physical examination. The purpose of the well-check is to screen for any medical issues, update vaccinations, provide treatment if there is an illness, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

Patients may also need additional testing if there were unnatural findings regarding cancer screenings as well. Your physician will consult with you after the completion of your well-check to offer a testing and treatment plan, should it be necessary.
