Amidst the everyday hustle, it's easy to overlook one crucial aspect: personal health. Neglecting health concerns can lead to significant problems down the line. However, the good news is that many common men's health issues can be managed or even prevented altogether.

This article will shed light on four common health problems in men and explore actionable steps they can take today to safeguard their well-being. Healthy habits can help men prevent health risks and pave the way for a bright and fulfilling life ahead.


1. Face mental health issues with professional help

Depression and anxiety are issues everyone faces, yet research shows that seeking professional help remains daunting for most men who don’t want to be seen as weak. The social stigma that comes from traditional gender roles for men is a factor in overcoming mental health issues.

Fortunately, cultural norms change with the popular acceptance of therapeutic services that highlight the importance of mental health. By changing the stigma around mental health through open discussion, men can prioritize their well-being and get the help they need to grow mentally and emotionally.


2. Heart disease is preventable with lifestyle changes

Research has shown that heart disease is still the number one cause of death in the Philippines. Precursors to heart disease like hypertension affect men earlier than women, although the differences subside as they age. The most prevalent heart problem is ‘ischaemic heart disease’ caused by hypertension and high cholesterol levels. 

Habits such as regular cardiovascular exercise, diets with whole grain and low-fat foods, and adequate sleep can improve health in the long term. Men who make time for self-care can improve not only their health but their career and personal relationships as well. 


3. Prostate cancer is curable with early detection

Filipino men are reluctant to undergo prostate cancer tests and treatment due to stereotypes of being seen as frail or a burden. A focus on preemptive healthcare can overcome these barriers and promote better outcomes for both young and older men alike.
