Screening detects health problems in people who do not have symptoms. Questions
about your health, a physical exam, and certain tests are all part of
routine screening to look for problems that often occur in your age group.
During the visit, your doctor will ask you questions about your lifestyle
- Health history
- Family's health history
- Exercise habits
- Use of tobacco, alcohol, or drugs
- Sexual habits
- Prescribed or over-the-counter medications
It is important to tell your doctor about all aspects of your lifestyle
and health. Complete and honest answers help your doctor give the best
advice for your health needs. During the physical exam, the doctor will
check your height, weight, and blood pressure. They will also perform
a breast and pelvic exam.
There are also other tests that your doctor may suggest. Some tests are
recommended for all women. Others are suggested for women in certain age
groups. Where you live, your lifestyle, and your personal and family medical
history also play a role in the type of health care you may need.
