Revealed, the top 7 excuses men give for not going to the doctors - which are costing many their lives Men often avoid going to the doctor because they say they're 'too busy' or afraid of bad news They're known as the tougher sex and are often mocked as having 'man-flu' at the slightest sign of a sniffle. But it is a well-established fact that men are less inclined to go to the doctors - often risking their health as a result. Rather than make appointments to see their family doctor on a regular basis,especially those aged 16 to 44, are often more likely to make excuses for not going. This reluctance to get checked over for seemingly minor problems can mean the opportunity for early detection and treatment of potentially fatal illnesses can be missed. In a bid to get more men along to see a doctor, a survey looked at the top excuses men most often make. It found the number one reason given was that they were simply 'too busy' with almost a quarter of men using that excuse. Just behind it at 22 per cent was men being afraid of finding out that something could be wrong with them. Many also admitted they were uncomfortable with certain body examinations such as prostate checks and others did not want to answer uncomfortable questions. Meanwhile, others blamed not wanting to be weighed while the most flimsy excuse was the cool temperatures of the examination room. The excuses didn't wash with the two American doctors who launched the 'Drive for Men's Health campaign' who said they had personally heard those excuses - and plenty more. Dr Jamin Brahmbhatt and Dr Sijo Parekattil are driving cross country to challenge men to stop making excuses and start making changes. 'Men can spend 3­4 hours golfing or watching a ball game every week, or find the time to take a trip to Vegas with their buddies, but they can't spare 90 minutes a year to get a check up? That's inexcusable,' said Dr Brahmbhatt, a men's health activist in Florida. 'As men, we need to make our health more of a priority, and that's what the Drive for Men's Health campaign is all about.' The doctors point out that the life expectancy for men is at least five years less than it is for women, and of the top 10 causes of death in the US, men are more likely that women to die from nine of them. Failure to visit the doctors has been linked to men having a lower life expectancy than women, studies found Previous studies have found men are a third less likely to go to see a doctor or pharmacist than women.pre bonded hair Earlier this year, Diana Sanchez, professor of psychology at Rutgers University, also linked 'macho attitudes to health' with lower life expectancy in men. The found men were also more likely to choose male doctors   because they thought they were more competent than female doctors. TOP EXCUSES GIVEN BY MEN 1. Too busy -24 per cent 2. Afraid of what might be wrong - 22 per cent 3. Uncomfortable body exams - 19 per cent 4. Being weighed - 12 per cent 5. Being naked under gown - 8 per cent 6. Personal questions from doctor - 7 per cent 7. Too cold in exam room 4 per cent 8. Something else - 11 per cent Yet when they go to see a male GP, it was found they were less likely to be honest with them about their problem. A psychological questionnaire discovered many felt they should be 'tough, brave, self reliant and restrained' about potential medical problems,' according to the study. 'That's because they don't want to show weakness or dependence to another man, including a male doctor' Professor Sanchez said. The latest survey was conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of Orlando Health using a poll of 2,042 adults. 'Women are much more proactive about their health than men,' said Dr Brahmbhatt. 'We often use the analogy that our bodies are a lot like our cars. 'Men will take the time to do preventative maintenance on their cars, like getting tune ups and oil changes, but for whatever reason, we often don't take the same care of our bodies. 'We need to change that mindset,' he said.

Next week will see the conclusion of the 12th season of The Bachelorette, as Joelle 'JoJo' Fletcher gets engaged to either Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes. And according to a new report, there's set to be a dramatic break-up ahead of the romantic proposal. Us Weekly claims that JoJo comes to the difficult decision of choosing between the two suitors after one of them makes a big mistake with her parents Joseph and Soraya. Family matters: Joelle 'JoJo' Fletcher apparently picks her fiance in next week's Bachelorette finale after one of the men makes a big mistake with her parents Who will it be?: Jordan Rodgers (L) and Robby Hayes are the two men left in the competition, and one of them allegedly gets sent packing after failing to ask JoJo's parents for her hand in marriage The runner-up gets dumped after failing to ask the 25-year-old's parents' for her hand in marriage, and during the emotional rejection, JoJo confesses that she wanted things to turn out differently. 'JoJo was sobbing,' a source told Us Weekly. 'She told him, “I wanted it to be you.”' The insider added: 'It was important to JoJo that the guys get her parents’ permission before proposing. JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn’t.' Us Weekly claims that JoJo's family liked both of the finalists, but thought that the man she eventually picks was better suited to her. Favourite from the start: Jordan received the First Impression Rose and his relationship with JoJo has gone from strength to strength ever since Not true: The 27-year-old former quarterback has denied that he cheated on his last girlfriend 'Everyone thought he was husband material,' a source said. 'Later, they told JoJo that they liked the other man too, but they thought the second would be more loyal and a better fit.' And speaking about the family's meeting with the runner-up, the insider revealed: 'After he left, Soraya said she thought he was a player.' It seems that JoJo did make the right decision however, as she is apparently still very happily engaged to the winner. She likes what she sees: JoJo has also fallen in love with former competitive swimmer Robby, 27 Denying the rumours: Robby has refuted claims that he dumped his girlfriend to appear on the show Former quarterback Jordan, 27, has been a favourite to win the show from night one, when JoJo presented him with the First Impression Rose.cosplay wigs Show secrets: Us Weekly revealed details of the dramatic finale And while on Monday's episode of the show he was seen telling the real estate developer that asking her father's permission to propose would be very important to him, a clip for the finale showed JoJo asking if he is ready to get down on one knee. Both of the finalists have faced rumours about past relationships, with Jordan's ex Brittany Farrar claiming that they broke up because she cheated on him. He denied this to JoJo on the show. The footballer is estranged from his famous NFL star brother Aaron, whose girlfriend Olivia Munn is close pals with Jordan's ex-girlfriend. Aaron finally addressed his younger brother speaking about their fraught relationship on the show during an interview with WISN on Tuesday. 'As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm not going to speak on those things,' he said. 'But I wish him well in the competition.' Meanwhile a friend of Robby's ex-girlfriend Hope Higginbotham has claimed that he dumped her in order to go on The Bachelorette, something which he denied during last week's hometown dates. The Bachelorette finale followed by the After The Final Rose special will air on ABC on Monday. She made the right choice: JoJo is apparently still happily engaged to the winner, who popped the question in May. The finale airs on ABC on Monday
