Briefs from UFM Presents: Men's Urological Health Issues
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, 25% of men said they would wait as long as they could before getting help with a health problem. Unlike women’s health issues, men’s health still remains a taboo subject among groups of friends and even family members. With September here, it is time to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. Let’s make it normal to talk about the issues which face men as they age. Underwear For Men is here to promote a culture of awareness among men. We believe men have the potential to help others be better men. Our company doesn’t just sell briefs or boxer briefs, we also focus on raising awareness of issues that help men live happier and healthier lives. Putting knowledge in the hands of young men and creating a culture of openness has the potential to save lives. Even if you aren’t entirely comfortable talking about these issues, sharing your personal experience or struggles with others has the potential to save lives. Don’t feel alone in your struggle, the men around you may have experienced the same or similar issue at least once in his life.
Common Men’s Health Conditions
Men are less likely to discuss health issues that plague them than women. The CDC reports men are 80 percent less likely to visit the doctor for preventative care. Health awareness and disease prevention messages can make all the difference in catching a problem earlier. At Underwear For Men, we want you to be aware of conditions, so you can then follow through with proper treatment. Some of the most common men’s health conditions include:
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia: Also called BPH, this is an enlarged prostate. BPH is common in older men and causes a guy to feel like he needs to urinate a lot. Too often, men ignore this condition until they are in serious pain.
Hydrocele: This is a fluid-filled sac which surrounds the testicles and causes pain in the scrotum. Older boys and adult men develop a hydrocele because of injury or inflammation in the scrotum. If you notice any type of inflammation, even if there is not pain associated, it is best to err on the side of caution and see a physician.
Urinary Incontinence: The problem with incontinence is that it is a common condition but men tend to feel like they are the only one experiencing this condition. Men see incontinence as embarrassing. There are treatment solutions including lifestyle chances, surgery, and even something as simple as changing your brand of briefs.
Prostatitis: This is an infection of the prostate which presents in a number of ways. This could appear in pelvic pain, problems urinating, and even a urinary tract infection. According to the National Institutes of Health, prostatitis is the number one reason men under 50 have to visit a urologist. Nearly 25% of appointments among men with urinary problems are for prostatitis.
Male Specific Cancers: The most common male specific diseases are prostate cancer and testicular cancer. These diseases do not discriminate by age, race, or any other demographic (except gender). Unfortunately, many guys do not visit a physician when they first notice a problem. Checking yourself is your first defense in protecting yourself against these cancers.

I have had a problem finding undershorts that are comfortable with the extra padding I now have to wear.
