5 Things You May Not Know About Men
*WARNING this article is not for all ages and may not be safe for work.*
We all know that men are the worst at going to the doctors. Since they will not go we have to make certain that we pay close attention to their health and make their annual appointments and force them to be checked. Some of the cancers they need to be aware of are penile cancer which is very rare; it occurs in less than 1 in 100,000 men and accounts for less than 1% of cancers in men in the US. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting males between the ages of 15-35. This year 8000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and about 300 will die. The good news is that testicular cancer is one of the most curable cancers. As I have mentioned before in order to cure it you have to know you have the disease, send your men and boys to the doctor regularly. Here is some more information I recently read in “20 Things You May Not Know About The Penis” by Dr. Draion M. Burch AKA Dr. Drai #AmericasOBGYN.
The foreskin, als known as the prepuce, is a loos fold of skin that covers and protects the head of the penis and the urethral meatus (opening for urine) when it's soft. It's similar to the clitoral hod; the skin that covers your clitoris. This skin is very delicate and can tear easily. There is however , a medical condition called phimosis where the foreskin won't retract. It usually resolves over time but can cause banalities; an infection of the foreskin.
