Men’s Health Q&A

What types of men’s health services are available?

In addition to annual physicals and general medical care for illnesses and chronic diseases, Dr. Tagdiri also offers:

  • Prostate cancer prevention and detection
  • Testosterone replacement
  • Cardiovascular health testing and treatment
  • Erectile dysfunction prevention and treatment

Dr. Tagdiri treats the whole person and takes into account your medical needs and lifestyle goals when working with you to provide the best outcomes possible.

What should I know about prostate health?

Men ages 55-69 have the option to have a prostate cancer screening during their annual physical, or if they experience symptoms related to urinary or sexual dysfunction.

During your visit, Dr. Tagdiri collects a sample of your blood to check for the presence of a prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Elevated levels of PSA can signal prostate cancer. Digital rectal exams are another screening tool Dr. Tagdiri uses to assess for enlargement of your prostate.

Dr. Tagdiri provides lifestyle and nutrition advice to support prostate health and reduce your risk of developing prostate cancer. If you do develop prostate cancer — like 1 in 7 men — diagnosis and treatment are available.

What is testosterone replacement?

Testosterone replacement is a form of medical therapy that aims to replace testosterone that is lost as you age. During middle age, your testes naturally produce less testosterone, which can make you gain weight, lose lean muscle mass, and suffer from sexual dysfunction and mood disorders.

Through a simple blood test, Dr. Tagdiri determines if you have low testosterone and could benefit from treatment. With testosterone replacement, he prescribes a testosterone supplement — in the form of a gel, pill, injection, or patch — to restore your normal testosterone levels.

Why is cardiovascular health important?

Cardiovascular health becomes more important as you get older and poor lifestyle choices or inherited risk factors impact your heart. Dr. Tagdiri provides thorough counseling and testing to help you improve your heart health. By following personalized lifestyle recommendations and getting treatment — as needed — you can reduce your risk of developing heart disease or experiencing a heart attack.

How is erectile dysfunction managed?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects 30 million American men who cannot get or maintain an erection that’s firm enough for sex. ED can be caused by a lack of blood flow to the penis, stress, and other health issues — like high cholesterol, heart disease, or diabetes.

Dr. Tagdiri provides ED prevention, detection, and treatment — including medications and injections — customized based on your medical needs and lifestyle goals so you can resume sexual activities without discomfort or embarrassment.
