For whatever reasons, the perception is that men in general, are not interested in discussing health, nor are they keen on exploring and knowing about their bodies.
This may or may not have substance, but increasingly, ‘men’s health’ is a major issue. The more a person knows about how to prevent ill health and recognise diseases and symptoms, the better prepared they are to handle health problems. Knowledge of health issues can be vital in ensuring that problems are detected early and, where appropriate, treatment initiated quickly.
In diseases such as cancers, early detection can make a huge difference to the nature and severity of the condition. Men taking a closer interest in their health is not only welcome – it is essential.
