According to a survey carried out by, in the UK one in five men has ‘not visited a doctor in the last year.

(Other even more worrying results where that 6% of the men asked wouldn’t visit a doctor even if they had chest pains and 2% had never even seen a doctor!   I don’t know if it’s the same in other countries, or it’s just UK men who think if you ignore it, it will go away.)
