The Importance of Health Screenings

admin - July 10, 2014



Health Screenings play a vital role in disease prevention.

Health screenings should be an important priority for everyone. Screenings use tests, physical examinations or other procedures to detect disease early in people who may not show symptoms. Health screenings focus on preventive care, since diagnostic tests are often only run when a patient is already showing signs and symptoms of a condition.

 

Why You Should Have a Health Screening

Health screenings help you identify if you have or are at risk for a particular disease or condition before you are aware. Early detection, followed by treatment and management of the condition can result in better outcomes, and lower the risk of serious complications.

As men and women age, there are health screening services that become more important to have. Age is a risk factor for many life changing diseases, and the power of prevention is your body’s best defense.

We recommend that you consider preventive health screenings starting at age 50, however if you have risk factors such as family history of stroke, cardiovascular disease or diabetes, talk to your doctor about potentially having health screenings starting at an earlier age. At Life Line Screening, we encourage you to review your test results with your doctor who can help you determine the best next steps for you.

    I love lifeline screening. Years ago you found that my husband had a large abdominal aorta aneurysm. Within two weeks it was taken care of. Thank you lifeline.
