In the U.S., the average lifespan for women is five years longer than men and 57% of all those ages 65 and older are female. So, why is there a gender health gap? This is primarily due to men’s health seeking behaviors: men try to avoid doctors entirely! We want to change that at The Y Factor.
The Y Factor’s Urological Male Wellness exam is designed to break down those barriers and open the door of opportunity for men to regain and protect their health.
Our comprehensive evaluation consists of specific blood work, andrology testing, physical examination, and imaging that collectively provides our experts the health-specific information we need to keep you optimized now and in the future.
We recommend our Urological Male Wellness Exam for every male 20 and over at least once a year so we can track fertility, sexual health and check for testes cancer then adapt the examination as men age.
While every guy has a unique urological journey, at The Y Factor we check for common urological and male fertility issues that guys experience during various points in their life. These are just general breakdowns and we always screen for issues that are impacting you no matter your age!
20-30 year-olds: You’re young and in your prime! Let’s keep it that way. During your exam we’ll screen for any signs of testicular cancer (one of the most common malignancies for men your age), establish your testosterone levels and keep an eye on them, and of course helping you navigate any potential STDs with screenings.
31-40: Things are changing not only in your life with the potential of marriages and kids, but also within your body. During your wellness exam we’ll continue to monitor your testosterone levels and keep them at your baseline through natural solutions, identify and help with any infertility problems, and help with any sexual dysfunction problems you might be experiencing. This age range is all about making sure you stay in your prime as long as possible! Are you done growing your family? We can talk about that no-scalpel vasectomy as well.
41-50: Life is just getting started and we want you to continue being there for your family and friends. Your exam will focus on everything we look for in your 30s, but also we start to monitor for any issues with urination pain. This is also a common age range where men get the no-scalpel vasectomy.
50+: You’re optimized and life is good! For our 50 and over men, we always examine for prostate cancer and make sure we detect it early.
This is a common concern we hear from our patients. Our General Male Wellness Exam is different from meeting with your family practitioner or primary care doctor because we specialize in looking for what’s wrong through urological tests and male specific medical recommendations.
