Men should pay more attention to their health. There are health conditions that only affect men, such as prostate cancer and low testosterone. Many of the major health risks men face can be prevented and/or treated with early diagnosis provided by screening tests. Men can take steps now to reduce their risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, certain cancers, and other long-term illnesses. Making healthier lifestyle choices such as healthy eating combined with physical activity, choosing not to use tobacco, limiting your alcohol use, and getting regular health check-ups will improve your quality of life. Men have a life expectancy of 76.4 years versus 81.2 years for women, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Health, United States, 2015 report. Heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women. Don’t put off regular checkups and medical care. Take charge of your health.
