Whenever I go to my doctor to ask for a regular check up, I have to beg. This spans three doctors and at least a decade. Every time they ask what is wrong (“nothing”) and say that I’m too young to have anything to worry about.
I wonder how much of this is because of the male stereotype and how much is from the system/insurance.
In honor of Men’s Health Week, an image from my favorite awareness campaign ever.
If there is one thing that the men in my life have in common, it’s waiting until it is almost too late to seek medical attention.
Talk to the men in your life. Start a conversation.
