Men's Health

Although men of all ages should have routine checkups with their physicians, it is very rare for men to begin seeking routine care until they are in their 40s. While there may be many individual reasons for this, men are generally reluctant to see physicians routinely because of the following:

  • Lack of trust
  • Lack of time
  • Embarrassed to talk about health issues
  • Discomfort in discussing their own health
  • Fear
  • Feel fine even though one may have underlying issues such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and elevated blood sugars
