Here's the first evidence-based guide to focus solely on the various health conditions that unequally affect men. This text provides a biopsychosocial approach to diseases and disorders of male patients from birth through infanthood, childhood, and adolescence, and from early through late adulthood. Replete with current evidence-based guidelines to facilitate clinical decision-making, the framework of each chapter builds upon epidemiological data centered on men. Special attention is given to the circumstances that influence men to either seek or not seek routine medical care.

  • Provides a general overview of the construct of men's health, detailing the organization of preventive healthcare in men, diagnostic bias in men's healthcare, gender disparities on a global level, and the hesitancy of men to seek help.
  • Focuses on pertinent medical disorders and biopsychosocial issues in the developing male from infancy through school-age to adolescence.
  • Highlights a comprehensive review of common system-based disease conditions that unequally impact adult men through an evidence-based approach.
  • Examines special concerns of adolescent and adult males including lifestyle risks, suicide, nutrition, stress, exercise and fitness, integrative medicine, cosmetic plastic surgery, cancer, and end of life issues.
  • Summarizes clinical care guidelines for special populations of men including athletes, executives, prisoners, homosexuals, and transgendered men.
  • Authored by leaders from numerous subspecialties, for well-rounded perspectives on many clinical problems.

Review:

Having considered the issue of Men’s Health generally, the book turns to those issues affecting males from birth to adolescence, then explores health problems in the various body systems before discussing what it terms “special concerns of the adolescent and adult male. Every section of the book is fully referenced and the index is very comprehensive. The layout of the text makes for easy reading and the text itself is clear and concise. Key points are summarised at the beginning of each chapter whilst other statistical information is in separate tables. Internet links to important guidelines are also provided.
