There are diseases and conditions that affect only women and those that affect only men. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) says that most men need to pay more attention to their health. Compared to women, NIH says men are more likely to smoke and drink, make unhealthy or risky choices, and put off regular checkups and medical care.  Diseases like prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction are unique to men, but other diseases that affect both men and women can be prevented or treated if they are diagnosed early. Second Opinion doctors have identified diseases and screenings specifically for men over the years, and one episode even tried to answer the question “Why do men die at a younger age than women?” The information in the following episodes and pages provide comprehensive review of relevant information to help men stay healthy, in partnership with their doctors, and treat disease.
