This week of events highlights the importance of men’s health. Men are at higher risk for many serious diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and STIs, and face unique health problems that often go untreated. Preventive screenings and regular health care are crucial. However, men often neglect these, leading to severe consequences. Men are also less likely to discuss and seek help for mental health issues.
