Physical Examinations in Tempe
At the Men’s Vitality Center in Tempe, many of our patients ask us what they should bring to their physical examination appointment. While this may seem like a minor inquiry, bringing the right material will help your physician in determining your overall health diagnosis and treatment plan. If you’re currently taking any medications, or experiencing discomfort of any sort, make sure to let your physician know. If your family has a history of high cholesterol or diabetes, we can help you navigate towards a healthier lifestyle to avoid these hereditary diseases.
What To Expect During Your Physical Examination
When you visit our state-of-the-art men’s healthcare clinic, our certified physician will carefully examine your skin, face, eyes, neck, chest, heart and lungs to ensure everything is looking and functioning properly. During your physical exam, you can expect the following:
Testicular exam: You may receive a testicular exam from your doctor to check for cancerous lumps or other harmful health conditions that affect the testicles.
Hernia exam: Also known as the “turn your head and cough” exam, the hernia exam checks for any weaknesses in the abdominal wall between the intestines and scrotum.
STD exam: A physician at Men’s Vitality Center may want to check you for sexually transmitted diseases or infections as a part of your physical exam.
Prostate exam: Your physician will also want to perform a prostate exam once you’ve reached the age of fifty. Inserting a finger into the rectum will allow the doctor to feel your prostate for it’s size and any suspicious areas around it.
