Tough Guys Speak Out About Men's Health On The Healthcare Scoop
Date:6/15/2009

In honor of National Men's Health Week, men and their families asked to share stories around men's health issues

Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) June 15, 2009 -- In recognition of National Men's Health Week, June 15-21, 2009, and Father's Day, The Healthcare Scoop is calling on men and their family members to share their health-related experiences online and increase the dialogue around preventive care and common men's health issues. Think men are reluctant to talk about health issues? Think again.

Consumer Story
A man in Everett, Wash. shared his experience after his latest physical on The Healthcare Scoop: "I applaud my personal care physician for taking the time to talk over related issues that any man approaching his 60th birthday may have such as an enlarged prostate, hypertension and heart disease. It is better to catch the problem early on than to let it surface later on. I left his office 90 minutes later knowing that I was in better shape than I had thought, because this doctor took his time to discuss these concerns with me. It pays to ask the right questions in taking care of oneself."

"Men nationwide are dismissing the notion that it's OK to simply ignore their health," said Dr. Todd Ginkel with Physicians' Diagnostics and Rehabilitation in Edina, Minn. "While men may be more apprehensive than women to talk about their health, many men are quickly realizing that they're not alone and preventative care or early detection of common conditions such as heart disease and an enlarged prostate can lead to effective treatments and a more fulfilling life with family and friends. National Men's Health Week provides a wonderful opportunity for greater conversation and awareness for men's health."
