9 Essential Health Screenings for Men
Men need regular health checks. Medical check-ups help you stay healthy, talk about any concerns and pick up early warning signs of disease or illness. Diseases such as cardiovascular (heart) disease, diabetes and some cancers can often be picked up in their early stages, when treatment may minimise or prevent complications and progress. When you have a health check, your doctor will talk to you about your medical history, your family’s history of disease and your lifestyle. They will also talk to you about your diet, your weight, how much you exercise and whether you smoke or drink. If you have high risk factors, it may be more likely that you will develop a particular disease. Regular check-ups may help your doctor pick up early warning signs. For example, high blood pressure may be an early warning sign of cardiovascular disease.
