Men's Health

  [close]

Men, your health matters to you and to your family. The steps to lifelong good health are simple, starting with choosing a doctor for regular checkups.

Men visit a doctor half as often as women do.

Those regular checkups are important. They let you understand your current health, stay on track for feeling your best, and detect problems early — when they can be corrected more quickly and easily.

Men live five years less on average than women.

It's simple: taking care of yourself means living longer, more years with your family, and more years of feeling your best.

The basic steps of healthy living are simple.
