Never too old!: Of course, everything depends on how HEALTHY you are, not your age. Many travel vigorously well in to their 80's, even 90's. If YOU love to travel, this is a big incentive to invest some time every day in "preventive medicine" (healthy diet, yoga, meditation!). "Age is never so old as youth would measure it."

Prostate, testicles: Most health problems are equal opportunity offenders, but some are more common in men (and some in women). Obvious ones include prostate disorders, genital disorders, and hernias (due to the path of testicular descent during development). However not so obvious: depression, gallbladder disease, and migraine are more common in women. Note gender based lifestyle choices / differences matter also.

Probably not: Of course, "cold symptoms" can mean many things. Typical sx of cough and runny nose are NOT sx of STI. Most STI symptoms are "local" (genital) and include rash, itching, discharge, or pain. That said, it is possible that an isolated "sore throat" could be a symptoms of something more serious like gonorrhea, but unlikely.
