Testicular cancer usually affects men at a younger age
Prostate enlargement affects a third of men older than 50 years, and colon cancer is one of the most common cancers, which is more common in men. It is important to know that preventive examinations disease is preventable, slow down its development or the early detection of cure, explains.

Are we talking about men's health and we need to choose the five vulnerabilities in men, let us mention the organs that are commonly affected by severe and often fatal disease.
Cardiovascular System: The most common cause of death in more than 50 percent, heart disease and blood vessels. Men are particularly vulnerable and suffer at an earlier age than women. The most important and the most common disease of this system is atherosclerosis. It is a disease that begins with the deposition of fat in the walls of blood vessels (arteries) and eventually leads to narrowing of the blood vessels or damage to the inner walls of blood vessels, which then leads to blood clotting at the site which in turn interrupts the blood supply of a particular organ that is so irretrievably damaged. Examples include heart attacks (blockage of a coronary artery) and cerebral infarction (cerebrovascular accident).
Atherosclerosis is a disease where we do not know the real cause, but we are known risk factors that can influence and thus prevent or delay its development and the emergence of serious consequences such as heart attacks. The most important risk factors, you probably already well-known, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol and obesity, physical inactivity and smoking.
Prostate: prostate enlargement (benign or benign hypertrophy) affects about a third of men older than 50 years. Faults are frequent and difficult urination, incomplete emptying of the bladder, weak stream of urine ... more serious disease is prostate cancer of any illness of up to 15% of men and the number of patient’s increases with age. Prostate cancer is more aggressive and dangerous if it occurs at a younger age. The disease is usually asymptomatic long, and in order to successfully treat the disease is best detected in the asymptomatic, stage.
Testicles: Testicular cancer is not as common, but usually affects men at a younger age. It is the most common cancer of men aged 20 to 35 years.
Colon: Cancer of the colon (colorectal cancer) is one of the most common cancers, slightly more common in men than in women. The likelihood of contracting increased after the age. This is one of the rare tumor whose origin was very successful because it can prevent the majority of these tumors develop from initially benign polyps.
Skin: Melanoma is an increasingly common, highly malignant form of skin cancer. The origin of the tumor susceptible persons, those who were more exposed to the sun. Men are more likely professionally perform the tasks in the open where they are exposed to direct sunlight.
When we interfere seek medical attention. But do we need a doctor, and when you feel good? The answer is definitely yes. These are some important "weak points" in men. For successful treatment it is important to detect the disease at an early stage while it does not cause any interference. This can only preventive examination. A preventive examination is used to detect changes that just may lead to infection.
