WHY DO WE NEED PREVENTIVE HEALTH CHECK UPS
“Prevention is better than cure” and Health is wealth”….. Let us all start realizing and applying these important words in our life. In today’s world, everyone is so busy keeping up with work pace, household chores and raising kids. It is now time to invest in our health.
It has been observed that people of age-group (30-60 years) are being increasingly affected by lifestyle diseases. It is recommended that men, above 35 years of age, and women, above 40 years of the age, should undergo annual preventive health check-up. In the case of a significant history of a particular disease in a family, it is important to take up screening tests early. These diseases include diabetes mellitus, coronary heart Disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, cancer of breasts, prostate, colon, etc. In a number of cases (especially in critically illnesses like cancer), an early diagnosis can help prevent or manage the disease and improve the patient’s lifespan. According to cancer.org, the survival rate for stage 1 cancer is 100% and stage 2 cancer is 93%. This proves that early diagnosis is extremely important.
