One of the best tools to help you manage your health is preventive care. Regular routine exams and cancer screenings are essential to your health because they can detect health issues in the early stages, when treatment is more effective and less costly. In many cases, simple lifestyle changes can help to reverse or manage conditions revealed during screenings.
Make a plan to practice prevention and schedule a routine physical exam each year. During your visit, ask your doctor which preventive tests and screenings are right for you.
