Men are twice as likely to wait more than two years between doctor visits.  Almost 20% of men admit to going to the doctor just so a loved one will stop bothering them about it.  Waiting can also cause medical issues that could have been avoided if caught early, avoiding any last second emergency situations.  With this being Men's Health Awareness Week, and Father’s Day around the corner, Mayo Clinic urologists Tobias Kohler, M.D., and Jeffrey Karnes, M.D., discussed some of men’s most common health conditions like low testosterone, prostate and colon, anxiety or other medical issues.
