Abstract

Men's health remain unclear term for majority of general population as well as physician worlwide. Nowadays there is an increase interest in addressing men's requirement in health care as a separate branch. When discussing about men's health, it is fair to say that even a man himself does not know much about men's health. Most of them think that men's health is just a discussion on sex. This thought is not entirely right. The scope of men's health is actually larger than the male sex organ itself. To define men's health, we have to look at man holistically.
