Men’s Health Awareness Month is celebrated across the United States during the month of June.
It is during this time that the Maverick County Hospital District urges community residents to encourage and educate their male loved ones on the importance of health and medical annual checkups.
Males are often the last ones to turn to a medical care professional. This type of behavior needs to change. Maverick County Hospital District’s Urologist Dr. Michael Crone urges men in our community to understand their men’s health and visit their medical doctor regularly.
Dr. Crone has been practicing medicine for over 15 years and joined the MCHD in 2016. A Board Certified Urologist, Dr. Crone received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Texas Tech University School of Medicine in Lubbock, Texas. He went on to complete his residency at the Medical College of Virginia, Department of Surgery, and Division of Urology in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Crone also served our country as a Second Lieutenant, Captain, and Major in the United States Air Force. Dr. Crone also has academic teaching experience as an Associate Professor in the Department of Urology at Texas Tech University School of Medicine in Lubbock, Texas.
“Urologists are very important in promoting many aspects of men’s health. This includes prostate health, treatment of difficulties in urinating, detection and treatment of prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction. It is highly recommended that any male ages 40 to 75 have an annual prostate examination,” said Dr. Crone. “Like with many other things, if you put off not seeing a medical doctor for health issues it will grow to the point where it’s more difficult to treat or in some cases untreatable. It’s always better to be early with these types of things.”
Men’s Health Awareness Month is an opportunity to educate and encourage our loved ones to take preventive action and avoid suffering from any of these conditions.
