Male Health Concerns and Issues for the Aging Man

Male Health Concerns

Males in contemporary America and other countries have a number of health needs and issues that are targeted to their gender. Other health specific issues men experience are those that can affect not only their gender. These health issues can include Balding, Heart Attack, Hypertension, Heart Disease, High Cholesterol, Incontinence, and Urinary Tract Infections. Health issues involving Ejaculation, the Prostate, and the Testes are others that males face. Health concerns related to declining Testosterone, Alcohol abuse, Narcotic abuse, Smoking, Obesity, and Stress are still more concerns for men in America and today's world.

Balding

The American Medical Association has stated that ninety-five percent of persons with baldness have, 'Androgenetic Alopecia,' or, 'Pattern Baldness,' an inherited trait affecting up to twenty-five percent of the male population. Androgenetic Alopecia affects most of these men before they reach the age of thirty, and two-thirds of all men prior to age sixty. This form of baldness may develop in older adults as well, with a resulting overall thinning of their scalp hair instead of complete baldness.

Heart Attack

The American Heart Association states that Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death among Americans. Heart attacks are responsible for one out of every five deaths among American adults. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) states that 1.2 million heart attacks happen every year in America; 460,000 of them result in a fatality. Three-hundred thousand people die every year from a heart attack before they can receive medical attention. One estimate suggests that by 2010, heart disease will be the leading cause of death world-wide.

Hypertension

The force of blood through a person's arteries is known as their, 'Blood Pressure.' When their heart beats it pushes blood through their arteries with a certain amount of force, referred to as their, 'Systolic Blood Pressure.' When the person's heart relaxes after each beat, the force of the blood decreases; this is referred to as their, 'Diastolic Blood Pressure.' Hypertension is a chronically elevated state of pressure in a person's arteries. Persons whose blood pressure is above 120/80 mm Hg are diagnosed with Hypertension.

Hypertension is a risk factor for congestive heart failure, heart disease, impaired vision, stroke, and kidney disease. The higher a person's blood pressure is, the greater the risk the person is at. Hypertension that is untreated can affect all of the person's organ systems, and may shorten the person's life by ten to twenty years.

Heart Disease

'Heart Disease,' is a term that may be used to describe any disorder of a person's cardiovascular system which affects their heart's ability to function. Other names for Heart Disease include, 'Coronary Heart Disease (CHD),' 'Cardiovascular Disease,' or, 'Coronary Artery Disease.' Heart Disease causes congestive heart failure, angina pectoris, heart attack, ischemia, and sudden cardiac arrest. Arthrosclerosis is the most common form of heart disease, and is the result of continued narrowing of a person's blood vessels which supply both blood and oxygen to their heart.

High Cholesterol

Cholesterol is a soft and waxy fat particle that circulates through a person's blood, produced by their liver. Cholesterol is a common steroid, and is an essential building block for cell membranes. Cholesterol is needed for the formation of bile, something that helps people to digest fats, as well as in the formation of hormones, other steroids, and vitamin D. Many of the foods that are popular today contain cholesterol in amounts that the body does not need, increasing levels of it in the person's blood and causing the accumulation of plaque deposits in their arteries. Plaque buildup in a person's arteries can lead to Atherosclerosis, or Coronary Heart Disease, increasing their risk for stroke, heart attack, circulatory issues, and even death.

Male Incontinence

Enlargement of the prostate or, 'Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH),' is one contributing factor to male incontinence, although there are a number of factors that may contribute to it. Male incontinence may be considered Acute, Temporary, or Chronic. Acute male incontinence occurs suddenly, while Temporary male incontinence is transient. Chronic male incontinence is long-lasting. Male incontinence may be Congenital, in that it is present at the time of the person's birth, or it may be, Acquired,' in that it developed as the result of a disease or an injury the person experienced.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract infections are common and may occur in men, women or children. A urinary tract infection happens when bacteria enter the opening of a person's urethra and multiply in their urinary tract. A person's urinary tract involves not only their urethra, but their kidneys and bladder. Urinary tract infections that develop into kidney infections can become painful and quite serious.

Prostate Cancer

The clinical term for a cancerous growth on the prostate gland is, 'Adenocarcinoma.' A growing prostate cancer may spread to the interior of the prostate gland and tissues near to the gland, as well as to other, more distant parts of the person's body. Untreated prostate cancer can affect the man's lungs, liver, bones and additional parts of their body. When prostate cancer is confined to the prostate gland, it can often be treated successfully, making prostate examinations very worthwhile.

Enlarged Prostate (BPH)

Growth of the prostate involves hormones, not just prostate cells. The hormones affect various types of tissues, including both glandular and muscular tissues, and affect men differently. Because of the different affects on men, treatment of BPH is individual. Once BPH has begun it will continue in many cases unless therapy is started. There is no cure for BPH. There are two different ways that the prostate grows. One way the prostate grows involves multiplication of cells around the man's urethra, resulting in a,' squeezing,' effect. The second way the prostate may grow is described as, 'middle-lobe prostate growth,' where cells grow into the man's urethra and bladder outlet area, commonly requiring surgical intervention.

Erectile Health Issues

Men may experience some different erectile health issues. One of these issues involves Erectile Dysfunction. Another health issue men may face is Delayed Ejaculation. Premature Ejaculation is a health problem that some men experience. A health care provider can assist men in working with these health-related issues, as well as infertility.

Testicular Health Issues

There are several Testicular health problems that men may experience in life. Testicular Pain, or Scrotal Pain, Epididymitis/Orchitis, and Hydrocele are among the Testicular health concerns men may have. Varicocele, Peyronie's Disease, and Testicular Cancer are others. Men may also experience a Testosterone deficiency. Keeping appointments with a doctor is important, as well as annual physical examinations.

Alcohol Abuse

Alcoholism is a chronic disease that is also known as, 'Alcohol Dependence,' and is potentially fatal. Characteristics of an alcoholic include the inability to stop drinking despite psychological, medical or social complications; an increased tolerance for alcohol, drinking in excessive amounts, and the presence of withdrawal symptoms when the person stops drinking. The person may drink when it is dangerous to, such as when they drive, and their drinking may cause family and other social problems. Five times as many men are dependent on alcohol as women in America.

Narcotic Abus

Narcotic abusers have both impaired function and a great amount of interference in their ability to live daily life. They develop social, mental health, and physical health problems that affect not only themselves, but their family members and friends. Estimates place the cost of treating, caring for, and loss of productivity on the part of narcotics users above ten-billion dollars each year; not including the cost of treating narcotic-user related diseases. Slightly more men than women use narcotics in America, particularly in urban areas.

Smoking

Smoking produces short-term effects such as respiratory illnesses like colds, coughs, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Children exposed to second-hand smoke from adult smokers experience higher rates of ear infections, asthma, and lower reparatory infections than children who live with non-smokers. The long-term effects of smoking are extensive, including a number of diseases that have been linked specifically to smoking. Smoking causes cancers of the lungs, mouth, throat, kidneys, bladder, stomach, pancreas, and cervix. Approximately one-third of all forms of cancer have been linked to smoking and tobacco use in general. Ninety-percent of lung cancers have been linked to smoking. Smoking causes Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Emphysema, and Chronic Bronchitis, and also doubles the risk for stroke.

Obesity/Overweight

Persons who are overweight or obese risk developing coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and gallbladder disease, as well as several other forms of illnesses. Obesity increases a person's risk for breathing issues, including asthma and sleep apnea. Persons who are overweight or obese are more likely to experience a stroke, or may suffer from depression or other forms of emotional disorders. The National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey found that ninety-seven million people in America are either overweight or obese.

Stress

As human beings we all experience certain amounts of stress. Stress can become an issue when we experience too much of it, and there are descriptions for excessive stress. Stress may be described as, 'Acute,' when it is short term, 'Episodic,' when it is experienced frequently, or, 'Chronic,' when it is experienced over long periods of time. Chronic stress is considered to be a serious condition and often times causes severe emotional and physical symptoms in people. An example of Chronic stress is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) which can follow life-threatening events.

Female Health Concerns and Issues for the Aging Woman

Female Health Concerns

Women have specific health care needs during their life cycle. Understanding and education about women's health is an important series of topics that includes a number of subjects such as Female Anatomy, The Female Reproductive System, Hormones, Diseases which are More Common in Women, Cancer, and Cosmetic Concerns. During a woman's life they may also have health care concerns related to Menstruation, Sexuality, Fertility, Birth Control and Infertility, Pregnancy, Motherhood, Menopause, and Post Menopause issues. Education in regards to these health care concerns is important and can help lead to a healthy and happy life.

Female Anatomy

From a skeletal perspective, women have a wider hip-to-knee ratio than men, as well as hamstrings that are not as strong as those found in males. Women's legs are somewhat longer, while their torsos are shorter than men of similar size. Women have less bone density, a lower center of gravity, and less muscle mass. These differences are important to note because women sustain different sports injuries than men do.

A woman's heart is physically different in ways from that of a man's, in ways that are not clearly understood. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women in America; nine million women in the United States have Heart Disease. Of women between the ages of forty-five and sixty-four, one in ten has Heart Disease. Of women over the age of sixty-four; one in three women has Heart Disease. Development of a healthy heart program is something every woman should pursue.

The Female Reproductive System

A woman's ability to reproduce can be an important part of her life. There are a number of health concerns associated with a woman's reproductive system, including yeast infections, fibroids, or cysts. The female reproductive system is complex and includes her uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and external genitalia. The most common surgery performed in America on women who are not pregnant is a, 'Hysterectomy,' which is a surgical removal of a woman's uterus. The surgery ends menstruation, as well as a woman's ability to become pregnant. Education about the Female Reproductive System is highly important to ensure that women receive proper health care.

Female Hormones

Hormones are chemical substances that are secreted by tissues which travel through body fluids to another tissue in the person's body; both men and women have hormones. In women, the hormones produced by the ovaries are involved not only in the processes of growing, maintaining and repairing reproductive tissues. Hormones also have influence over other tissues in a woman's body, as well as her bone mass. Women with low body fat many times do not produce enough of the hormones from their ovaries, and can experience health issues because of it. These issues can include fractures, Osteoporosis, a cessation of menstruation, and other conditions.

Once a woman has reached menopause, additional hormones called, 'Estrogen,' and, 'Progesterone,' may be decreasingly produced. Many times, a doctor will prescribe hormone therapy to treat the loss of hormones, but only for a short period of time due to an increased risk for heart attack, and a slight increase in the risk for Breast Cancer. Hormonal health issues such as Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid Disease, and Hypothyroidism are much more common in women than in men.

Diseases Occurring More Often In Women

There are a number of diseases that affect both women and men, but occur in women more frequently. Urinary tract infections, bladder infections and kidney infections are examples of diseases that affect women more than men. Others include gallstones, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Osteoporosis. Autoimmune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Sjogren's Syndrome affect more women than men.

Women and Cancer

Some forms of Cancer are specifically concerning to women. These forms of cancer include Cervical, Uterine, Breast, Ovarian, Pancreatic, Colorectal and Lung cancers. Breast Cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer among women in America. Ovarian Cancer is hard to detect in its early stages, and may occur in women of any age. One in every seventy women in America will develop Ovarian Cancer. Most women who develop Colorectal Cancer are over fifty years of age. Lung Cancer may be prevented by not smoking.

Cosmetic Surgeries and Procedures

One estimate states that more than six-hundred thousand cosmetic surgeries are performed each year on women seeking to improve their appearance, with the number of procedures increasing. These procedures involve the use of things such as Botox and Collagen injections; 'Dermabrasion,' and, 'Chemical Peels.' Liposuction, Lasers that remove unwanted hair, as well as Plastic Surgery techniques are among other procedures which are performed daily in America. Breast reduction, augmentation and reconstruction surgeries have been performed on millions of women. Education about the risks and benefits of these surgeries and procedures is important.

Menstruation

Women menstruate for approximately forty years of their lives, every twenty-six to thirty-five days. They may experience pelvic pain, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), and cramps. Symptoms of PMS include nervousness, irritability, cramps, headaches and bloating. There are a number of disorders related to either menstruation periods that are too long, heavy, irregular, or painful. These disorders might include, 'Polycystic Ovary Syndrome,' and, 'Endometriosis.' There is a disease known as, 'Hemochromatosis,' where too much iron is found in the woman's blood, requiring her to receive treatment to remove the excess iron.

Sexuality

Hormones such as Progesterone and Estrogen have a great influence on a woman's sexual life, as well as Testosterone. Fifty million women in the United States experience difficulty with sexual arousal, as well as pain during intercourse, referred to as, 'Dyspareunia.' Physical exercise can help to increase sexual arousal in women. There is also a great deal of research being done to produce a medication similar to Viagra, designed for women.

Fertility, Birth Control and Infertility

Ninety-four percent of the women between the ages of fifteen and forty-four in America use some form of birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies. The forms of birth control being used include Oral Contraceptives, Diaphragms, Spermicides, Contraceptive Implants, Cervical Caps, Rhythm Methods, and Intrauterine Devices (IUD's). Women need to pursue education about which method of birth control is best for them, as well as education regarding sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV and AIDS.

Infertility affects approximately one out of five couples in America, and becomes more of an issue in women who are over the age of thirty-five. Infertility programs, Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), or donor eggs or sperm are options that couples may pursue if they experience infertility. Adoption is another solution that may be considered.

Pregnancy

Approximately forty-percent of the pregnancies in America are unplanned. Information and education concerning pregnancy and conception can help women to prepare for a pregnancy, as well as a future as a mother. Learning about diseases that can complicate pregnancy such as Epilepsy, Depression, Asthma, Thyroid Disease, Diabetes, or Lupus, is important. Other factors can affect a pregnancy, and learning about them can help a woman and her baby to stay healthy. The period of time during which a woman is pregnant is a time when a woman's health is critical to both the baby and herself.

Motherhood

Women who have children devote very large portions of their lives to being a mother, with responsibilities that may last up to sixty years or longer. As a mother, a woman is not only responsible for her own health; she is also concerned for the health of her family. Approximately one-third of the children in America live separate from their fathers; mothers are being relied upon to both nurture and protect their children.

Menopause

In a strict sense, menopause is the time in a woman's life when menstruation ceases, and she no longer ovulates. However, it is also a time in a woman's life, usually when she is in her forties or fifties that has often been referred to as, 'the change in life.' Menopause can be measured through diminishing hormone levels as well. Symptoms of menopause can include forgetfulness, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, mood swings, fluctuating sexual desires, urinary incontinence and difficulty sleeping. There are health care options for working with symptoms of menopause.

Post Menopause

Increasing life spans among women find them living decades beyond menopause. Half of all the women in America over the age of seventy-five live alone, facing health issues including Heart Disease, Cancer, Osteoporosis, and additional health problems. Exercise, proper diet, avoidance of alcohol and smoking, as well as social involvement can help women to live better lives past menopause
