Resource: Understanding key issues surrounding the current status of the health of men

The reduced life expectancy of men compared with women is an issue of some considerable importance. Not only do men die earlier on average than women, there is also a preponderance among men of premature death, with resultant economic implications for the family.

This resource page covers the diagnosis and management of a number of matters affecting men’s health, such as urological issues, cardiovascular risk and colorectal cancer. Lecture and interview topics include:

  • Urological issues, including prostate cancer, erectile dysfunction and testosterone deficiency
  • Treatment of angina and acute myocardial infarction
  • New methods of imaging to diagnose myocardial ischaemia
  • Diagnosis and management of colorectal cancer
  • Latest developments in the management of carcinoma of the lung
