Good health - Mens health
Check your body, man - men's capacity to turn the average cold into 'manflu' is well known, ditto his talent for swearing blind that a self-induced hangover is an innocent headache, as well as his morbid fear that even a tweaked muscle may permanently end his 'sporting' career - i.e.: chasing a football around the park on a Saturday afternoon with his mates.
But, strangely, this species is also notoriously unwilling to check out the mysterious, but genuine, aches and pains that may be early warning signals of real health problems. Although there are signs that health is moving up men's agenda of priorities - vying with crucial issues like sex, sports, cars and money - they can still be "doctor dodgers'.
"Many men tend to rely on the optimistic theory that if they don't get something checked out it will probably go away, or clear up of its own accord. "They also tend to operate a mental 'profit and loss' account with their health. So if they do lots of 'bad' things like drinking too much, smoking, or indulging themselves they then think that going to the gym for a few heavy sessions will level things out and there'll be no damage done.'
Many men worry about getting a "graphic cancer' like testicular, but, in reality they may be more at risk from a stroke - a quarter of strokes happen to those under the age of 55. Monitoring their own health - like regularly examining themselves for signs of testicular cancer - and having regular medical check ups are both sensible precautions.
But undergoing tests to see whether they're suffering from common conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure could not only help safeguard their health, but even save their lives. Here's a complete guide to the tests every man should have, for each key age group.
