The goal of Men’s Health Month is to increase the awareness of preventable health issues and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This month gives all types of health care providers an opportunity to inform men to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. The response has been amazing with thousands of awareness activities and programs across the nation...
That being said, it's important to us at South Alamo Medical Group that we educate our male patients on the importance of seeking medical attention before its too late.
To be honest, I was the type of guy that would typically tough it out when I got sick or injured. And all of us have heard at one time or another "You are a guy, suck it up" or "Your hurt? Rub some dirt in it". Meaning that just because we were a male, we somehow had to endure more pain than we typically should. Well, then I have some news for you. That makes no sense!
Why wait when you know you can start getting better now. In my opinion, being man enough to seek help when you need it is truly admirable. I have had relatives and close friends make the same mistake and not seek medical attention when they need it the most. Don't be that way, you have loved ones that depend on you to be healthy and well. Do not allow your pride to get in the way of you getting the necessary treatment and medical care.
I encourage every guy to get your yearly wellness and physicals done. Make a confident approach to take care of yourself because that is exactly what a real man does.
