Men's Uncomfortable Health Concerns Featured

Most men will be uncomfortable discussing health concerns that specifically affect their genital area.  

Men want to feel like they are in control of their health, which makes it hard for most men to admit they are afflicted with any health problems. 

Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is probably the number one issue that men are uncomfortable discussing with a stranger, which includes their doctors. It’s in a man’s nature to be discreet about any issues relating to his penis, particularly erectile dysfunction, because he associates it with his manhood. Guys need to remember that erection problems will happen to most men at some time or another. If it’s because of alcohol or stress, it shouldn’t be considered a big deal.

Premature Ejaculation

Another health concern men are uncomfortable discussing is premature ejaculation. This is when a man lacks control over his ejaculation and it happens significantly sooner than he or his partner would prefer. Premature ejaculation is the most common of all male sexual health issues and affects almost every man at some point in their lives. There are a number of ways to deal with premature ejaculation, but a new climax control programme known as Prolong is providing the most impressive results. It is the first medically-approved programme designed specifically to treat premature ejaculation.

Jock Itch

This embarrassing health concerns starts with a minor itch in the groin area that rapidly gets worse. If you inspect the affected area, it may be red with oozing or possibly crusty skin. It's not an easy thing to mention to your doctor, considering how sensitive men are about their genitals. Jock itch is a common condition caused by friction, fungal growth, humidity, and heat. It usually starts in the crease where your legs connect to your torso. Untreated jock itch can spread to your buttocks, thighs, and genitals. In severe cases, it can cause abscesses, open sores, ulcers, and skin infection. Although it normally affects men, women can also suffer from jock itch. It occurs when the skin is warm and moist (sweating), which creates an ideal environment for fungi to thrive. Call your doctor for a consult as soon as you notice symptoms. They will prescribe antifungal lotions, pills, or sprays that will relieve the itch.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) have an ugly stigma attached, which is why most men find them uncomfortable to discuss with others. They are often associated with promiscuous guys having lots of unsafe sex, but the truth is that they can be contracted by being unlucky just one time. Most STIs are usually easily treated once diagnosed and the average clinic or physician has seen it hundreds of times already.


Noticing blood on the toilet paper or in the bowl may cause you to panic, but it is most likely piles. Piles are normally caused by persistent pressure on the blood vessels inside the anus, and can occur due to straining on the toilet (especially if you've recently been constipated). Other symptoms include pain, itching, a lump or stains in your underwear.

Erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, jock itch, sexually transmitted infections, and piles are all uncomfortable conversations for men to have with anyone, including doctors. If your man is experiencing any of the above, encourage him to see a professional. Try and create a comfortable environment for him to discuss these issues with you. At the end of the day, it affects both partners. Source -
