Common Health Tests
Importance of Health Screening
Common health tests may be performed in your doctor's office, at health fairs, or even in the pharmacy. Regular health checks and screening for certain diseases and conditions have become routine for most people.
If you have any questions about exactly which tests are right for you, please discuss these concerns with your own doctor.
Screening tests for some of the less common conditions are not included here. However, it is important to be aware that just because doctors can identify someone at increased risk for a condition does not necessarily mean that it is preventable. It may simply mean that you will need to work with your doctor to closely monitor your health to ensure that the condition is detected as early as possible.
This is a brief review of some common screening health tests and it is not intended to include all of the available screening tests.
