Let’s be honest - men are usually not nearly as diligent when it comes to going to the doctor for routine screenings. In fact, many men admit avoiding seeing their primary doctor for as long as possible, even with life-threatening symptoms. Unfortunately, simply ignoring the problem doesn’t mean the problem will go away every time. This has been an ongoing issue that prevents doctors from being able to detect early signs of underlying health conditions that can lead to bigger problems down the line, and sometimes resulting in death. It is crucial for men to be able to discuss their health problems and/or concerns openly and honestly with their physicians which can potentially prevent bigger issues from arising in the long-term.
