Health screening is a process of identifying apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition. They can be offered information, further tests and appropriate treatment to reduce their risk and/or complications arising from the potential disease or condition. Screenings are tests that look for diseases before you have symptoms. Screening tests can find diseases early, when they are easier to treat. You can get some screenings in your doctor's office. Others need special equipment, so you may need to go to a different clinic or hospital.
