Seeing your doctor for routine preventive care can help identify health problems before you know something's wrong, which is often when treatment could make the most difference. Your physician will consider your personal risk factors, such as your age, family medical history, general health and lifestyle, then make recommendations for the preventive health screenings that are appropriate for you. Talk to your doctor about your specific health questions and concerns, and use these guidelines, along with the advice of your doctor, to maintain or improve your health.
