The concept of ‘managing your health’ or ‘staying healthy’ often translates to eating healthy and regular exercise, while going to the doctor associated with being sick. In fact, visiting the doctor regularly for preventive care is an important part of staying healthy.
Our body is a dynamic and constantly changing living being. Therefore, periodic health screening allows early detection of diseases previously unknown to the individual.

All prostate problems can have a significant impact on quality of life, and so many men above the age of 50 may develop some form of prostate disease.

It is estimated that more than 50 % of men in their 60s, and as many as above 80 % of men in their 70s or older have some symptoms of an enlarged prostate.
