Guys, these 7 quick health checks could save your life
"Guy walks into a doctor's office..." That's not the start of a joke — that is the joke. Men don't go to doctors unless they're in serious pain or really spooked about something. In a 2007 American Academy of Family Physicians survey, 58 percent of men cited specific factors, such as lack of time, lack of insurance, and lack of extreme symptoms, as reasons for avoiding physicians. But another 6 percent actually gave the grown-up equivalent of "the dog ate my homework," saying "something else" always prevents them from going. The head-in-the-sand approach isn't much of a health-maintenance strategy.
