Regular health screenings are important for a better quality of life. Our home-based health screening packages are tailored to test for several conditions to enable you to detect diseases early and you can easily make an appointment via the Speedoc app.
Men’s health in Singapore is often trivialised, glossed over, or reduced to an unrealistic generalisation tied to fitness and physique. But it need not be the case! With medical advances today, many major health risks, like colon cancer or heart disease that men are prone to, can be prevented completely or successfully treated with early diagnosis.
Getting advice on general health matters should be easy and convenient — and that’s what our doctors are trained in.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common condition that affects up to 80% of men globally, and it can start as young as 20 years old. It is often characterized by the the inability to get or maintain an erection that is sufficient for sex.
Unknown to many, ED could be a symptom of a more serious health issue, such a heart disease. Detecting and treating ED early is key to identifying any underlying condition(s) as soon as possible.

Premature ejaculation (PE) is a condition that affects around 30% globally. It is characterized by the inability to delay orgasm, potentially causing frustration to the patient and/or their partner.
There can be many causes of PE, ranging from physical to psychological ones. Getting treated for PE helps you to enhance your relationship with your partner again, allowing you to have it going longer.

It’s normal to lose some hair once in a while.
Hair loss can be caused by heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or aging. 32% of men have experienced hair loss before the age of 30.
Hair Loss has been associated with cardiovascular diseases and prostate cancer. Detecting and treating hair loss early is key to preventing serious health consequences.
Just as women are more prone to certain conditions, men, too, are susceptible to specific illnesses.
Many cases of prostate cancer are confined to the prostate gland, where they may not cause serious harm. When detected early before it has spread beyond the prostate gland, there is a high chance for successful treatment.
However, there have been cases of aggressive prostate cancer where the cancer progresses and spreads quickly. To detect for prostate cancer, you can opt for a biopsy or a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test that can be used to screen for prostate cancer.
At times, doctors may use transrectal ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to help guide the biopsy as well.
Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy (BPH), also called prostate gland enlargement, is a common condition in older men. The enlarged prostate gland interferes with the discharge of urine from the bladder and can eventually cause urinary tract infections. Where the bladder is unable to empty and there is a backup of urine into the kidneys, it can eventually lead to kidney failure. This can often be caused by an obstruction in the upper part of the urinary tract as well.
Premature ejaculation (PE) is characterised by the inability to delay orgasm for more than three minutes. It is a common condition that affects 30% of the global male population. Although not medically serious, PE makes it harder for men to enjoy sex and can be a cause of frustration among couples.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterised by the inability to get an erection or sustain one long enough for sexual intercourse. It is normal to experience difficulty getting an erection from time to time. However, when it occurs one too many times, ED could be a symptom of a more seriously underlying disease like diabetes and heart disease.
Low Testosterone Levels
Hypogonadism, or low testosterone levels, can cause a loss in sex drive, poor erections, low sperm count, and enlarged breasts. While it is not unusual for older men to experience low testosterone levels, the long term effect can cause osteoporosis, smaller testicles, less energy, and mood changes.
Male pattern hair loss is characterised by either a receding hairline or a balding spot on the top of the head. Globally, 32% of the male population would have experienced some degree of hair loss before the age of 30.
Hair loss can be associated with hereditary factors, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or simply aging. But it has also been associated with more serious illnesses like prostate cancer and heart disease.
You may opt for a hormone test. Your hormones play an integral role in your health and wellbeing as it can affect your mood, energy, sex drive and fertility. In the event your levels of testosterone are lower than normal, it can result in fatigue, hair loss, erectile dysfunction, anxiety, and increased fat as well.
Generally, if you are concerned of your health, you may consult a doctor via a video consultation to help you make a more informed decision on the nature of tests you may wish to consider. When it comes to health screenings, it is recommended to have it done when you enter your 20s.
Between your 20s and 30s, you should opt for a general health screening that covers diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, especially if you have a family history of these conditions. If you are sexually active, you ought to get screened for sexually transmitted diseases too.
In your 40s, it is recommended to get screened for major illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, and lung cancer.
In your 50s, the risk of prostate cancer and colorectal cancer increases. You are also likely to develop age-related eye diseases, erectile dysfunction, and osteoporosis when you’re in this age group.
In your 60s, you should continue to get your screenings done annually. Keeping to an active lifestyle can also help reduce the chances of dementia and depression.
Depending on the condition of your health and the symptoms you are experiencing, the treament options would vary.
