    Despite the advances in medical technology and research, men continue to live an average of 7 years less than women; significant numbers of male related health problems such as prostate, testicular and colon cancer and infertility, could be detected and treated if men's awareness of these problems was more pervasive. Appropriate use of tests such as prostate specific antigen (PSA) exams, blood pressure screens, cholesterol screens, etc., in conjunction with clinical examination and self-testing for problems such as testicular cancer can result in the detection of many of these problems in their early stages and increase survival rates.
