Men's Health

Studies show that the life-expectancy gap between men and women has decreased.  However, men often need to pay more attention to their bodies.  Several things work against men — they tend to smoke and drink more than women, they may not seek medical help as often as women, and they sometimes define themselves by their work, which can add to stress.
 
There are certain health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone.  Many of the major health risks that men face, like colon cancer or heart disease, can be prevented and treated with early diagnosis.  Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat.  It's important to have regular checkups and screenings.
