Heart

The problem: As men age, blood pressure and cholesterol levels often increase. The fix: Eat a heart-healthy diet, exercise, and have your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked annually. Consider a coronary calcium scan above age 50, if heart disease runs in the family.

Skin

The problem: Men ignore their skin more often than women. The fix: Get an annual head-to-toe skin screen by a dermatologist to evaluate suspicious moles and other skin conditions.

Muscle

The problem: Men begin losing muscle mass by age 30. The fix: Incorporate muscle training into your fitness routine to help increase bone density, metabolism, and muscle-fat ratio, while maintaining flexibility and balance.

Colon

The problem: Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in men. The fix: Eat a diet high in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and low in red meat and alcohol. Consider a colon­oscopy at age 50, particularly if colon cancer runs in the family.

Prostate

The problem: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (an enlarged prostate) affects about 50 percent of men between the ages of 51 and 60 and up to 90 percent of men older than 80. The fix: Eat a low-fat diet, exercise, and undergo a prostate exam by age 50 or sooner if at high risk for prostate cancer.

Testosterone

The problem: Levels typically decrease with age, with about 20 percent of men having low T by their 60s. The fix: See a doctor to get your testosterone levels checked, if experiencing a drop in libido, energy level, unexplained weight gain, or ongoing depression.
