Happy June – Men’s Health Month!

It’s the middle of the year and the weather is warmer.  Not only does Father’s Day fall during the month of June, it’s also Men’s Health Month.  This is a good time for you fellas to consider capitalizing on your health insurance plan and some of those wellness benefits.

Screening Tests

Even if you feel fine, the only way to know if you are at risk for future medical problems is to have a few tests such as:

  • blood pressure
  • blood sugar
  • cholesterol
  • colon cancer screening for most adults starting at age 50
  • prostate cancer screening for most men over age 50

Why procrastinate?

These screening tests are important and shouldn’t be overlooked.  We know it, we don’t like to take time to do it, but early detection is important with any condition.  These tests also provide peace of mind when they reveal good results!  So take time during Men’s Health Month to schedule your preventive screenings and then sit back, sip some iced tea and welcome the warmth of summer.
