Ask Dr. K

What are routine questions regarding gay men's health that I should be asking my physician during a regular examination?

Some questions gay sexually active men should ask their doctor about are your risk for hepatitis A and B and the value of immunization; what your syphilis infection status is; whether you have gonorrhea or chlamydia in your butt, throat or penis; and ways to reduce the risk for getting STDs and HIV.

You should also ask about anal cancer and your risks; what warts look like and how they are treated and different than the virus that causes anal cancer.

Thanks for asking.

To your health,
Dr. K
