Our Dr. Harry Fisch has some thoughts.  "At age 40," warns Dr. Fisch, urologist and clinical professor of medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College, "the body begins to change and men are past the maintenance free years."

The other factor is programming since childhood.  "When a boy is 5 years old and skins his knee, he is told that big boys do not cry," says Scott Williams, vice president of Men's Health Network, who commissioned the survey. "Fast-forward to adulthood and chest pain evokes the same dismissive reaction." But denying changing health requirements can be dangerous, experts say.
