Getting preventive care is one of the most important steps you can take to manage your health. That’s because when a condition is diagnosed early, it is usually easier to treat. And regular checkups can help you and your doctor identify lifestyle changes you can make to avoid certain conditions.
In addition to a full check-up, women in their 40s should have an annual mammogram, unless otherwise instructed by your healthcare provider. For men, discuss prostate health and recommended screenings with your healthcare provider.
