Yeast infections in men are less common than in women, but they can still occur. According to research, about 15% of men will experience a yeast infection at some point in their lives. However, the exact prevalence of yeast infections in men is difficult to determine because many men may not seek medical attention for their symptoms or may mistake their symptoms for another condition. It's also important to note that men with weakened immune systems or other risk factors may be more prone to developing a yeast infection. If you suspect you have a yeast infection, it's important to consult a healthcare provider for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
