Breathlessness

Men often complain about falling short of breath, which indicates serious health concerns related to cardiovascular system. However, the condition might also indicate lung diseases such as lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), chronic bronchitis, emphysema, asthma, or pulmonary hypertension. 

Fatigue

Men experience extreme tiredness and an ongoing lack of energy almost on regular basis. Sometimes this might lead to negativity and lack of sleep. "Fatigue can also be a symptom of a more serious physical or psychological health condition. Cancer, congestive heart failure, diabetes, arthritis, infections, and kidney or liver disease are a few serious ailments that are linked to fatigue, which should not be ignored. It can also indicate the malfunctioning of the thyroid gland," thinks Dr. Pravin Dehana, general physician, according to TOI.
