HIV/AIDS in men – causes, symptoms and diagnosis
The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a virus that affects the immunity of a healthy person. In advanced stages, it leads to AIDS that stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and is considered to be one of the biggest causes of deaths among men. The virus infects the immune system, destroys it gradually to the point that it literally ceases to exist and leads to several infections and illnesses that the body is unable to resist and eventually turn into a fatal case.
One million people over the age group of 13 and above suffered from HIV in the United States alone and almost 50% were men. For every 50,000 individuals affected every year, two-thirds are men.
