Over the past 50 years, the average life expectancy for men has increased to approximately 75 years. While this is a positive improvement, men are still more likely to avoid a visit to the doctor and to ignore unusual symptoms which could be a sign of a serious health issue. It’s important that men be more vigilant about the health issues that affect them.
