Regular health screening tests are an important part of preventive health care. Early detection is often the key to successful treatment. Many times, there are no signs or symptoms of common health problems, making it even more vital to have these screenings done in order to catch the disease as early as possible – and begin treatment. Age, genetics and lifestyle play a role in each person’s risk for disease, so patients should check with their physician to find out how often they need specific screenings. We perform the following screenings:
- Blood Pressure
- Blood Glucose (Diabetes)
Early detection is the key to surviving cancer, no matter what kind of cancer it may be. During your annual physical exam, your physician will screen for all types of cancer, including breast, ovarian, testicular, prostate, colon and skin cancer, just to name a few. Many factors determine when a patient should start having a cancer screening, such as age, gender, medical history and family history. Consult your physician about when you should start receiving annual cancer screenings. It is also just as important to perform self-exams to screen for cancer of the breast, testes and skin.
