Happy Men's Health Week to all the dudes out there!
International Men's Health Week was created to focus on issues facing men's health. Boys are often taught to "tough it out" and not express pain. This creates dangers as those boys become men with age-related health concerns, or mental health issues.
The top five causes of death in men are heart disease, stroke, suicide, prostate cancer, and lung cancer. The most effective way to combat preventable death in men is to see the doctor annually. Many issues can be detected and treated if trends emerge that increase a man's risk.
