Learn about the biggest issues facing men's health.

  • Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men, excluding skin cancer.
  • African-American men are at the greatest risk to develop prostate cancer.
  • The American Cancer Society recommends men with an average risk of prostate cancer should begin the discussion about screening at age 50, while men with higher risk of prostate cancer should begin earlier.
  • Sexual health is a major overall health marker for men -- 1 in 4 men will experience some form of sexual health concern by age 65.
  • Erectile dysfunction and lower testosterone are linked to larger health risks, including heart disease, high blood pressurediabetes and obesity.
