  • Prostate gland is a small walnut-shaped gland of males that produces semen. It locates between the urethra and the neck of bladder and its growth and function is affected by the male hormones produced by testes. In Hong Kong, nearly half of the males aged 50 or above have some prostate gland problems, with prostate gland enlargement and benign prostate tumor being the most common. Prostate diseases can cause urinary tract infections or blockage and hydronephrosis (swelling of the kidneys), etc. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Common Male Health Problems
  • Published figures show that Hong Kong men's life expectancy is 78 years old on average, which is 6 years less that of women. The age-standardized death rates for the leading causes of death (e.g. heart diseases, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, stoke and suicide) are higher for males than females. Compared to women, men are more prone to some diseases, such as chronic liver disease, cirrhosis of liver and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In Hong Kong, about 10% of men have diabetes mellitus. However, the majority of them are not aware of it. Some men are also suffering diseases, which are unique to men, such as erectile dysfunction and prostate problems.

    Overview of common male diseases

    The issues that affect men's health vary throughout life. From childhood to old age, men have differing health experience at different phase of lives.

    Boys (Aged 0 - 14 years):

    Many of the health determinants that affect men's health are first encountered by boys in childhood, and the effects last a life-time. This includes the perceived notions of 'maleness' or 'boys don't cry' mentality that prevent them from talking about feelings, admitting of feeling sick and asking for help when they grow up.

    Adolescents and Young Men (Aged 15-24 years):

    Adolescence is characterized by experimentation, such as smoking, drug use or sexual relationship under peer influences. Therefore, it is a key time for shaping and consolidating health related values, attitudes, lifestyles as well as making decisions about various behaviors which have important consequences for future health.

    Adult men ( Aged 25 - 64 years):

    For adult men, a major influence on health is the workplace because they spend longer periods in the workforce. Men are much more likely than women to become a smoker, alcohol abuser, pathological gambler and drug abuser. On the contrary, they are less likely to have a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables and low in fats. Survey showed that more than 30% of men reported not doing exercise and were considered as overweight. Due to unhealthy lifestyle practices, Hong Kong men are more likely to die from cancers and heart diseases than women.

    Work and Stress Management

    It is common that men are suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. Survey indicates that almost half of men reported that they felt depressed during the past 12 months in 2000. The fact that men do not tend to turn towards interpersonal sources of comfort affects their work, life and health.

    Male adults tend to predominate in occupations with higher safety and health risks. In fact, work injuries and mental problems affect not only the individual, but also his family members. Therefore, a happy family is indeed being built on the good health of men.

    When men are approaching middle life, a significant number of them experience psychological and social difficulties in facing social role transition from breadwinner to homemaker.  In terms of physical health, they begin to notice impacts of previous unhealthy lifestyle and behavior when there is gradual increase in minor symptoms.  For the wellbeing of family members and yourself, male should have regular health check-up, healthy lifestyle and interpersonal sharing to ensure early detection and treatment of diseases.
