Do I need wound care?
You may need professional would care if a doctor has referred you to a wound specialist or you otherwise have a wound or sore that has been slow to heal. Most skin wounds should improve significantly within a month and heal completely within two months. Contact a wound care doctor if you have a slowly progressing wound or a wound that is worsening or showing signs of infection. http://ow.ly/i/yjhm7

Hypertension, or, high blood pressure, is a silent killer that’s quite common in the U.S. This disease requires a physician’s diagnoses, and can be lifelong or temporary. One of the key components of high blood pressure is that it often does not have any symptoms, until it reaches later stages. Hypertension most commonly affects people aged 40 and up.
While it sounds harmless, high blood pressure works by causing the heart to have to pump harder to get blood to your body. This causes atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke, kidney disease, and heart failure. Blood pressure is considered high if it reads 140/90. A reading of 180/120 or more is considered severe and often requires hospitalization and immediate intervention.

High cholesterol is an issue that plagues millions of Americans. While it sounds benign, high cholesterol can be life threatening due to the effect it has on the heart and blood vessels. High cholesterol can only be diagnosed through a blood test. Your physician at Advantage Plus Medical Center might perform this test as a part of your annual physical, if you have a family history of high cholesterol, or could recommend it if you’re experiencing symptoms like chest pains or shortness of breath.

A patient question
Should I get a prostate screening?
The decision to get a prostate screening is between you and your doctor. You may benefit from early prostate screening if you have a family history of prostate cancer – particularly cancer that has occurred at a young age. However, many healthy men with no genetic predisposition to prostate cancer begin periodic screenings sometime between the ages of 40 and 50.

Prostate cancer is a cancer specific to men. Several screenings are available to identify the presence of cancer within the prostate gland – even at its earliest stages. Fortunately, prostate cancer is a highly manageable disease among most men, with some doctors recommending very conservative treatment plans to men who test positive for the disease. Long-term prognosis partially depends on the stage in which prostate cancer is found. Prostate screenings are capable of identifying prostate cancer early, providing patients with the opportunity to take charge of the treatment process.
