Textbook of Men's Health draws together relevant gender-specific knowledge across the whole field of men's health and establishes an outline of the curriculum to develop expertise in the subject. Among its broad range of topics, this book covers musculoskeletal disorders, cardiovascular disease, androgen-related conditions, central nervous system and cognitive disorders, endocrine disease, genitourinary problems, sensory organ degeneration, gastroenterology, dermatology, and other age-related conditions.

The team of expert contributors provides a unique overview of male health as an entity and offers valuable insights for improved management and clinical care. Textbook of Men's Health provides a foundation from which you can develop your own studies and presents a basic framework from which you can plan and develop specialist courses and learning programs.

The World Health Organization estimates that, while the worldwide population of persons over 65 will double between 2000 and 2050, the gender difference will also increase. Men in developed countries will be expected to live an average of 5-8 years less than women. Published in association with the International Society for the Study of the Aging Male, this authoritative book provides comprehensive, interdisciplinary coverage of all male health issues.The first work of its kind, Textbook of Men's Health draws together relevant gender-specific knowledge across the whole field of men's health and establishes an outline of the curriculum to develop expertise in the subject.
