Men are notorious for putting off important doctor’s appointments and screenings, opting to “tough it out” or make excuses about their perfect bill of health.

As Dr. Aleah Gibson, a family physician  at St. Elizabeth Physicians’ Aurora, Ind. office, explains in the video below, the fact remains that men need to begin receiving annual exams after age 18. Regular prostate exams and colonoscopies should begin at age 50. Additional tests may be needed at 65.
