Today’s fast-paced lifestyles make it difficult to lead healthy lives that include regular exercise and eating a balanced diet. It is highly recommended that women undertake an annual health checkup to help detect potential health problems early. Some of the routine medical tests especially for women include:
- Pelvic examination – This is recommended for women over 30 years of age or who are sexually active. Your gynecologist conducts a routine examination and also a pap smear test that helps detect cervical cancer.
- Breast checkup – This is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in India despite being easily identifiable. Regular mammograms as informed by your doctor and monthly self-checks help diagnose breast cancer early when maximum recovery is possible. Examine your breasts for pain, tenderness, lump, thickening, or any discharge. Talk to your doctor if you spot anything unusual.
- Bone density test – Osteoporosis is a degenerative bone disease in which essential minerals such as calcium are lost, leaving the bones fragile and brittle. This test helps find out your bone strength.
