 US Study Says Men Shy Away from Routine Medical Check-ups

Only 57 percent U.S. men attend routine medical check-ups, new data has indicated.

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality revealed that against the low number of men, nearly 74 percent of women visit their doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant for routine care.


Routine care is typically defined as a visit for assessing overall health rather than one prompted by a specific illness or complaint.

The statistics also revealed that fewer Hispanic and black men made routine medical care appointments than white men, and those with private insurance were more likely to attend regular check ups than those with none.

About three-quarters of respondents who said they were in excellent health reported making an appointment for routine medical care versus half of those who said that their health was fair or poor. The numbers also indicated that those with low incomes made fewer medical appointments than those with higher incomes.
