Medical health check ups help detect early changes in the body, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, breast lumps or abnormal cervical cell changes. The earlier we get diagnosed, the earlier we can find appropriate treatment.
If you carry certain risk factors, such as smoking or drinking or have family history of cancer, you might benefit from annual testing. Your doctor will be able to suggest a testing schedule after thoroughly evaluating your conditions.
For those who are between the ages of 25 to 34 years old, a health check is recommended once every two to three years. For those who are 35 years old or above, annual health check is highly recommended. More frequent health checks are recommended for Hepatitis B or C carriers, having family history of cancer, diabetes or those who have other genetic inherited diseases. One should consult the medical professional’s opinion as to how frequent the health check should be.
It is crucial that our doctor understands your body condition, dietary practice, personal/ family medical history and other risk factors before your check-up to design a tailor made programme fit to your needs.

Moreover, our doctors can recommend any follow-up actions if necessary, so you can respond to the situation as soon as possible.
