“Men are 24% less likely than women to go for their routine check-ups.” Men skipping doctor’s visits hinder preventative healthcare efforts. This in turn could lead to higher healthcare costs for the Baby Boomer generation. Preventative efforts for your health can treat a medical condition before it becomes a problem. Going to your routine doctor’s visits will boost your chance of detecting a medical condition when it first arises. If you are able to detect the condition early on, you will increase the likelihood that the condition will be treatable.
