Preventive care counts!
Even if you’re in the best shape of your life, some serious conditions may have no signs or symptoms. That could put your health at risk. Early detection of any health issue is the best way to manage it and stay on top of your health.
Besides an annual wellness exam, some recommended screenings for women include:
Breast cancer
Women age 40 and older should have a mammogram once a year or as recommended by your doctor. If you have certain risk factors, screenings may start at an earlier age. A mammogram is one of the best ways to detect breast cancer.1
Cervical cancer
A Pap test is the best way to detect early signs of cervical cancer when the disease is highly curable and treatment is most effective. Women ages 21–65 who are sexually active and have a cervix should have a Pap test every three years.3
Blood pressure
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. So it’s important to have it checked annually.
Cholesterol
Have it checked, starting at age 35 or older, or at age 20–35 if you have risk factors for heart disease. High cholesterol is a serious risk factor for coronary artery disease, heart attack and stroke.
Diabetes
Screenings start at three-year intervals beginning at age 45, especially those who are overweight or obese. If you have multiple risk factors, you should be screened earlier. Adults with a blood pressure reading greater than 135/80 should be screened too.
Colon cancer
Begin screening at age 50. If you have a family history of colorectal cancer, you may need to be screened earlier. Talk with your doctor to decide which type of test is best for you.

Use this checklist

For your annual checkup, bring this checklist with you to help start the conversation with your provider. Be sure to:

Know your family and medical history, including any allergies.
Write down any specific questions you may have for your provider and bring them with you.
Decide with your provider which screenings are right for you based on your age, gender and family history.

Want to learn more? See what screenings your primary care doctor may suggest for men or diabetics, or those at risk for developing diabetes.
