    Mayo Clinic Radio: Men’s Health Month / tick-borne diseases / know your numbers

June is recognized as Men's Health Month by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Men’s Health Month heightens the awareness of preventable health problems, and encourages early detection and treatment for diseases and conditions affecting men and boys.

On this week's Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Landon Trost, a urologist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss two common men’s health topics: prostate cancer screening and what can be done about low testosterone. Also on the program, Dr. Bobbit Pritt, a parasitologist at Mayo Clinic, will cover common tick-borne diseases and how to prevent them. And Dan Gaz, an exercise specialist with the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, will explain how knowing your numbers can help you get the whole picture on your health.
