Report: Vets face serious health issues, but are less likely to complain about them | MilitaryTimes

Veterans are more likely to contract cancer, battle heart disease and face substance abuse problems than their civilian peers, but are also less likely to see problems with their overall health, according to a new study released today.

The report, from UnitedHealth Group and the Military Officers Association of America, presents a warning for civilian doctors that they may need to dig deeper into veterans’ medical files to make sure health problems aren’t being overlooked.
