Health Screening for Women
Many of us spend so much time looking after other people. Our children, our partners, parents and our friends. And when it’s coupled with the stress faced with holding down a day job we often forget to check in with ourselves.
The well woman check is designed to screen for common maladies that plague us. For women who are menstruating, this may be a low blood count, low iron levels, insufficient vitamin D or other hormonal imbalances. For others, the menopausal state brings with it other issues. Rising cholesterol levels, glucose intolerance and weight gain may become more significant.
Detect Health Concerns before they Worsen
Spending some time with our doctor will help to sort out and determine the correct laboratory tests and imaging needed. Most women will require a Pap test and may benefit from a pelvic ultrasound, some will require mammograms and breast ultrasounds, and yet others may require more in depth laboratory tests for hormonal imbalances. Knowing your cycles and family history of illnesses such as breast or ovarian cancer will help the doctor decide on the tests that will suit you.
