GENERAL HEALTH SCREEN BY AGE

 

         GYNECOLOGY GENERAL HEALTH SCREEN BY              AGE EVALUATION CHART

Health screenings evaluate our ever changing bodies and fitness. As we age, certain diseases become more common. Screening tests can detect diseases that do not have any symptoms until they are advanced. For example, diabetes and high blood pressure are often silent until they have caused organ damage. Early detection of a disease can change its course or cure it before any long-term issues have set in.
