You probably need to convince yourself of the benefits of health and medical screening. Prevention is better than cure. So you may be considering whether to invest in regular health screening.
The types of health screens available vary significantly in their content and in price.
Many companies offer products such as Executive Health Screens, Well Man and Well Woman Screens, Personal Health Profiles, Health Risk Assessments and individual tests and check ups such as Breast Screening (including Mammography or breast X Ray), and Prostate Cancer Screening for men.
The aims of health screening are threefold:
- To identify pre-existing health problems.
- To assess your risk factors for disease.
- To provide recommendations on your lifestyle and health that will encourage a longer and healthier life.
You should compare closely what is offered when you approach a hospital or a company about health screening. Look at what tests make up the screen and make a comparison between screens. Ideally, you should select a health screen, which is tailored to your requirements, according to your sex, age, family, and medical history.
You should expect:
- A physical examination and appropriate tests.
- A consultation with a doctor or nurse.
- Advice is about behavioural and lifestyle change.
- A written report.
- Supporting information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
