ADULT EXAMS AND HEALTHCARE
We strongly believe that your whole health
picture should be reviewed at appropriate intervals throughout life.
These intervals are determined by your state of life, medical history,
gender, and health status.
Women generally should have a health review every year. Breast exams and
pap smears are part of these routine annual exams. They also should have
a baseline mammogram between the ages of 35 and 40 and have screening
mammograms every year thereafter.
Men should have a general health review every two to three years up to
age 40, then every one or two years to age 50. After age 50 these exams
should be annual.
Everyone from ages 45-50 should have two or three flexible sigmoidos
copy exams of the colon every ten years.
