- Improving Your Urinary and Prostate Health
As you age, urinary health problems can become more and more common, ranging from erectile dysfunction to benign prostatic hyperplasia.
At AdventHealth Lake Wales, your team of urologists, oncologists and other men’s health experts can help you overcome sexual dysfunction and urinary issues effectively.
A vital way to keep an eye on your prostate health is through prostate cancer screenings. Unfortunately, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men and affects roughly one in six men.
Regular screenings and early detection provide the best opportunity for successful prostate cancer treatment. Your doctor can help you determine which screenings you need when they’re necessary.

- Easing Your Digestive Health Concerns
Many men experience issues with digestive health, ranging from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) to irritable bowel syndrome.
Your team of digestive health experts can provide medicines, dietary advice, and other treatments to help you feel more comfortable every day. They’ll also help you monitor your risk for colon cancer and other conditions that may occur as you age.
- Protecting Your Whole Health With Primary Care
Although men might avoid seeing a doctor when they’re not feeling well, a strong relationship with a trusted physician is extremely important.
We encourage men to be proactive with their health care and to seek treatment early when most conditions can be treated or prevented. From helping with health issues like sleep disorders and hernias to scheduling your routine exams and screenings, consider your primary care doctor as your first line of defense for long-term health.
