Overview

Although men consult their physicians less frequently than women, they are much more prone to accidents, violence, cancer, and cardiovascula r disease (all of which affect them in the most productive period of t heir lives). However, as the pressure mounts both at work and at home, men are expected to make heavier demands on their family doctors. Thi s book, the first to be published on men's health in primary care, has been put together by a team of general practitioners, psychologists, sociologists, and epidemiologists. It brings together all the latest r esearch on specifically male health problems during childhood, adolesc ence, adulthood and later life, and adds practical guidelines for prim ary physicians, other members of the primary health care team, and pat ients themselves. Clear management and referral protocols are provided , along with relevant case histories, bulleted lists for ease of refer ence, and informative illustrations.
