Bone Density Screening For Men

It's common for women to go in for a bone density screening to show whether osteoporosis is a threat, but what about for men?

New research shows that some men should get that test too. The study in the Journal of the American Medical Association says it's not cost effective to screen all men, but if you are a man age 65 or older and you've broken something at some time, that study suggests you may benefit from a screening.

Because osteoporosis can sneak up on men too and be just as crippling as it is in women.
