Just wondering what you think. Here in Australia, there is a huge campaign in regards to breast cancer, there is a great awareness about it, yet prostate cancer which kills about the same number of men as breast cancer does women, is not really in the public eye. I think it is absolutely wonderful the amount of support that has been shown and given for breast cancer, but do wonder why the same isn't being done for the other. Any thouhgts on this?

As far as i am concerned the women health is far much important then men health and the reason is that a women has much more huge responsibilites than men to fulfill they have to give birth then brought up their kids and always to look after their houses and also if you see ladies are not as hard as men so when it comes to something hard on their health they cant take much more as compared to men. That is what i think i might be wrong medically but i see the things like that.

I think that a womans role in bringing up kids and keeping house is a big job, but I don't know that is restricted just to the women. There seems to be a growing number of house husbands, who are just as good at raising the kids and keeping house. I just feel there should be as much awareness for women and mens health. Thanks for your thoughts.

That is a good point, women are more open to discussing their worries and health issues than men ever will be.

Yes, I have to say that most men do need to be pushed into going to the doctor, myself included. Shouldn't that be a good reson to really make people aware of dangers affecting their lives.

I have to say I comment about this a fair bit. The media seem to always make a big thing out of anything to do with women and totally forget that mens problems probably need to be made more aware as at least most women go to the doctor. Men seem to make excuse and don't go for check ups or talk about their health. I think it needs to be made more out in the open to help guys talk about their health. I am a woman and am shocked at how mens issues seem to take second place to womens.

Hmm, do you know anyone in particular who doesn't go to the doctor? This is true though, men seem to avoid doctors as much as possible.
