A small sign may be a symptom of a serious health condition or illness.
Sometimes the warning signs are obvious and present for quite some time or they may be immediate, painful and worrisome.
Men need to be vigilant about symptoms that could indicate potential health conditions and must get an evaluation for the same.
Men, as compared to women, go to the doctor less but are more likely to have a serious condition when they do go.
Here are some warning signs that they should not overlook.
1. Chest pain: If you experience frequent chest pains, an underlying medical condition could be behind it. Heart problems in men can cause chest pain; not all of these are life-threatening and require immediate action.
The serious causes of chest pain are heart attack, aortic dissection (separation of the layers of the heart's wall), ischemia (an insufficient amount of blood flowing to the heart) and pericarditis (inflammation of the sac around the heart).
2. General weakness and lethargy: General weakness and lethargy(fatigue) is a sign of kidney problems. Kidney problems are result of a build-up of acid in the body and urea in the bloodstream.
In addition to fatigue, there could be a loss of appetite and breathing will become more difficult. This puts strain on the heart, circulatory system and may lead to heart or lung problems.
3. Hair loss: Hair loss is a common middle-age problem. Men under severe emotional stress or those recovering from a major surgery or illness may lose hair.
Besides, hair loss is also a warning of more serious medical conditions such as an autoimmune disease (like lupus) and infectious diseases (like syphilis) and thyroid conditions.
4. Lumps on testicle: If you notice an abnormality or a lump in your testicles, you must get it evaluated. Not all testicular lumps are cancer, but it is better to have any abnormalities checked.
