We need to pay more attention to the factors that contribute to earlier deaths for men.
Many men view health complaints as a sign of weakness. So health-care providers are looking for ways around their reluctance.
The statistics about men’s mental health are alarming. Men complete suicide at more than three times the rate of women. And, as the National Institute of Mental Health reports, “Men are more likely than women to use almost all types of illicit drugs...and illicit drug use is more likely to result in emergency department visits or overdose deaths for men than for women.” Beyond these facts, we also know that men’s mental health literacy lags behind women's, that they report higher levels of mental health stigma
“Going to a physician involves a couple of things that may feel uncomfortable for men,” Good said. “They don’t want to ask for directions and they don’t want to have to consult an expert about something that they know less about.”
Working alongside TCF, Tommy John is hoping to erase the stigma surrounding the disease. It’s time to get a little “ballsy” and start the conversation that many are too timid to have.

7 common health risks—and how to renovate your life to avoid them.
A study this month found that women are less likely than men to be given CPR – but it is not the only way in which they are given short shrift in an industry where female pain is serially misdiagnosed.
If you’re approaching age 62, thoughts about retirement and collecting Social Security may be on your mind. Here’s something else to think about as well.
A significant increase in mortality starts at 62, according to a new study. The escalation is much more dramatic for men than for women. And the fatal catalyst, the study’s authors believe, might be the availability of Social Security.
They aren't whiners. Women have a higher rate of underlying chronic health problems.

A good mustache makes a man for many reasons - John Oates
Ask any guy, and he'll tell you that men are the stronger sex. His reasoning is obvious: in general, men are bigger and more muscular than women. They can run faster, lift more, and throw things farther. Men rule on the playing field, but in medical terms, it's a very different story. When it comes to health, men are the weaker sex.
For companies like Tommy John the comfort and well being of men is their main focus. Whether it’s through their partnership with the Testicular Cancer Foundation, or with their comfortable base layers supporting the men in our lives is always a priority. Inspired by this, I decided today to focus on the men in our life, and show how they can be proactive about their health through different stages of their life and maybe we can give them a kick start too.
Sperm counts in men from America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand have dropped by more than 50 percent in less than 40 years, researchers said on Tuesday.
They also said the rate of decline is not slowing. Both findings -- in a meta-analysis bringing together various studies -- pointed to a potential decline in male health and fertility.
What could CMS do differently? Instead of using PSA screening (or lack thereof) as a quality metric, how about using treatment as a quality metric? Why not use the EHR to see who is treating low-risk prostate cancer inappropriately? Or use the EHR to see who is ordering inappropriate CT scans or bone scans? Let's monetize appropriate care, not monetize the wholesale disruption of PSA screening. To do so -- as is being proposed -- is a war on men's lives to the benefit of nobody.
It is known that men face more daunting health odds than women. Some of this could be due to biology, the type of work they do, or the fact many men place their health last on their list of what to take care of.
Every time you walk into a physician's office, you run the risk of overtreatment: Tests you don't need, medications that are ineffective (or dangerous), procedures that cause more problems than they solve. In many cases the best thing for your health is to do nothing.
Traditional thinking about masculinity can work against health. Doctors and patients are trying to change those attitudes.
Men can expect to die approximately five years sooner than women, and men are more likely to die as a result of unintentional injury and suicide relative to women.
These differences are not well explained by physiological differences between men and women. One possible explanation is that men are more reluctant to go to the doctor – and less likely to be honest once they get there.
When we think about the psychological and physical stressors of raising a child, our sympathies are often directed toward moms. But plenty of dads are all too familiar with the stresses of juggling parenting, work, and daily life.
In the health world, men have a bad rap. Out of the 15 leading causes of death, men lead women in 14 of them. The only disease that women are more likely to get than men is Alzheimer’s disease and that’s because many men don’t live long enough to develop it. If you’re a married heterosexual male, chances are you’ll die an average of five years earlier than your wife. The explanation behind this health gap is a complicated one.
