Survey findings have revealed that many men don’t see their primary care physician annually, even through preventative screenings can reduce likelihood of some of the most common diseases affecting men. For example, prostate cancer affects one in six men, making it one of the most common types of cancer found in American men as well as one of the leading causes of cancer deaths in men.
