Compared to women, men are more likely to die young because of their attitude.
While the fact that men have greater exposure to violence and are more likely to use alcohol, tobacco, and drugs, machismo can also be blamed for their shorter lives. Apparently many men tend not to seek medical advice as they believe they must be “tough, brave, self reliant and restrained” when it comes to medical issues.
However, there are several symptoms that men tend to overlook that may indicate a more serious medical problem.
Here are some of the health symptoms that men should never ever take for granted, according to The Daily Mail UK.
1. Erectile dysfunction
This may be a sensitive issue for majority of men but an erectile dysfunction can be an early warning sign of heart disease.
Moobs or man boobs can be an indication of hormonal imbalance or a sign of liver disease. There’s also a possibility that the testicles are not functioning properly if you have this.
3. Peeing in the night
Needing the bathroom in the night could be a sign of an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer.
