Silent Killer Disease That Men Should Never Ignore

In comparison to women, men have a shorter life expectancy. While we will all die at some point, there are things we can do to live longer and healthier lives, which will improve the overall quality of our lives and the lives of our loved ones.

Men must be aware of and alert against these prevalent health-care threats. Men and boys can both benefit from routine health screenings and diagnoses. Make an appointment with your doctor if you haven't had a physical in a while.

Cancer of the prostate

Following skin cancer, this is the second most common cancer in men. Every year, a large number of men succumb to this condition. This is due to the fact that the disease has no signs until it has spread all over the body.

Prostate cancer is not curable, however it can be treated if caught early enough. Screening can cut the risk of death by more than 25% with regular screening.

2. Excessive blood pressure

The silent killer illness of the world is high blood pressure. If not addressed, it can result in a deadly heart attack, heart failure, or stroke.

3. Obesity

The top cause of death for males in the United States is this disease. Because it causes few to no symptoms in the early stages, it is extremely dangerous. It causes angina, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and arrhythmia by affecting the heart and blood vessels first. If left uncontrolled over an extended period of time, the risk will increase. Regular checkups are recommended to ensure that everything is in order.

Cancer of the lungs, number four

This is a condition that affects both men and women and is one of the most deadly. The importance of regular checkups stems from the fact that once a person is diagnosed with lung cancer, he may only live for five years. Thus, early detection can save a person's life.

5. Cirrhosis of the liver

This silent killer disease is caused by excessive alcohol consumption and has not yet been recognized in non-alcoholics. This disease is more likely to affect people with high cholesterol, sleep apnea, gastric bypass, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and an underactive thyroid.
