Public service announcement encourages medical testing.

A stone's throw from the is an eye-catching billboard. It reads, "This year thousands of men will die from stubbornness."

It also states, in small print, "Learn the preventative medical tests you need."

The sign was paid for by the federal government's Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, according to small print.

Prostate cancer kills more PEOPLE than breast cancer. If men do not want to take medical tests, they are making a decision to die before their time.

We all are going to die from something. It might as well be that.

As long as women stay up to date with their skills in matching symptom lists with potential illness, men only need to listen to their mother, sister, wife, or daughter when they tell the man to go to the Doctor. Of course... STUBBORNESS still applies.
