Let’s Talk Men’s Health: Check in. Check up. Check it out

Lena Weib

One of the biggest reasons men may not be more vocal about their physical health is the stigma attached to illness; some may perceive illness as weakness. This common stigma can have some serious consequences if left ignored.

Understanding their own health needs is often overlooked and any underlying issues can go undetected for longer than necessary periods.

At ROC Private Clinic we believe that regular men’s health checks can help you live life to the fullest and our men’s health checks are designed to pick up medical issues in the early stages and promote positive lifestyle changes to improve wellbeing. We offer the following as part of our Well Man checks:

Prostate Disease Screening

The prostate is a common site for cancer to develop. Because of where the prostate is located, symptoms of prostate cancer can be missed. That is why screening for prostate cancer is so important. Getting checked early allows your medical team to detect and treat prostate cancer in its early stages. We offer a more advanced method of prostate disease screening. We measure two different types of PSA levels – free PSA and total PSA. We then calculate the Free: Total PSA Ratio. This can be used to provide an indication of your risk.

Testosterone Deficiency Testing

Testosterone deficiency can really affect your quality of life. Low testosterone levels can affect sexual performance, brain function, and general wellbeing. Once identified, it’s possible to treat testosterone deficiency with testosterone replacement therapy.

Erectile Dysfunction Support

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or maintain a full erection and for many people, a fulfilling sex life plays an important role in their happiness. The key to successful ED treatment is a holistic assessment and a personalised treatment plan. As part of our dedicated ED clinic, we offer the latest treatments, including Morenova shockwave therapy. Morenova therapy uses painless shockwaves to restore blood flow to the penis and improve erections.

Sexual Health Screening

Sexual health checks are recommended to men who have had an episode of unprotected sex, are entering a new sexual relationship, or are simply looking for peace of mind. We know how sensitive sexual health issues can be, and how stressful it can be to have to wait for test results and treatment but we pride ourselves in offering discreet and Let’s Talk Men’s Health: Check in. Check up. Check it out straightforward services, with fast results and treatment.

Bowel Cancer Screening

There are over 42,000 new cases of bowel cancer every year in the UK. This means that every day, over 115 people are diagnosed and for every 10 people with bowel cancer, only 6 will survive more than 5 years. If detected early, bowel cancer can be successfully treated. Regular bowel screening can help detection at its earliest stages. We send a stool sample to our labs, where it’s tested for traces of blood. If blood is detected, then our team can arrange further tests and investigation. As part of our Well Man Check we also offer a full mental health assessment.
