From editor M. Sandra Wood: “It is well known that men are less likely than women to seek health care. Men tend to wait as long as possible to see a doctor about a health problem, making early diagnosis difficult if not impossible. Given the fact that men seem to be more private about their illnesses, the Internet provides an excellent place for them to seek health care information.”
