Men's Health

Men are notoriously bad at seeking help for their health problems. There are many conditions that both men and women can have - although they may be more common in one or other, depending on the condition. An example would be breast cancer, which can occur in men and women, but is over 100 times more common in women. However, some conditions can only affect men because of the differences in male and female anatomy. For example only men can have erectile dysfunction, prostate or testicular cancer. In our doctor-authored leaflets in this section you will find both specific and non-specific male problems. For example you will find information on embarrassing problems ("Why does my breath smell bad?"), but also on erectile dysfunction ("Why is this happening now?"). Testicular problems, male subfertility and male sterilisation are also covered.
