The combination of all the talk about the ACA and the fact that Movember is just around the corner has me thinking about men's health. The cliche is that men don't really care about their own health, that they have to be dragged to the doctor.

I am an outlier because a) I have ongoing (mental) health issues that are monitored by my GP b) I am a bit of a hypochondriac and c) I live somewhere with universal health care, so going to the doctor is free. (BTW, I have a female GP. Is that unusual? It hasn't ever bothered me, because she rarely has to examine my guybits.

My question is for the guys on here and also for the women who live with guys: is the cliche about men not going to the doctor true?
