Typical Components of Our Women’s Wellness Checkup
Before coming in for a women’s wellness checkup at one of our clinics, prepare yourself by reviewing the typical components of the exam. Based upon your medical history and personal needs, our female physical assessments generally include the following sections.
Screening for breast cancer is essential healthcare for women. During your wellness checkup, your doctor performs a visual inspection and palpation of your breasts to spot any irregularities that should be examined more closely. You should also self-examine monthly. For patients over 50, most doctors recommend undergoing a mammogram every two years, though the frequency can be adjusted based on your family history of cancer.
Basic gynecology treatments are involved in most annual women’s wellness assessment. The Gynecological services most often performed include a pelvic exam and Pap smear. During your pelvic exam, your doctor does an external and internal examination of the vagina, cervix, and vulva for any abnormalities or signs of sexually transmitted inflections. A Pap smear is done to screen for cervical cancer, one of the most common women’s cancers around the globe.
Cholesterol Testing and Bone Density Screening
As women age, their medical needs change. In order to keep up with your changing health, doctors recommend that female patient begin cholesterol testing at 45 and bone density screening at 65 during their annual wellness checkup.
