– It is necessary to undergo a medical examination annually. And the older the person, the more often it is necessary to undergo a medical examination. Preferably – once every six months. Minimum screening diagnostics should include examination by a general practitioner or family doctor, as is now customary. And already according to the results of the examination, the doctor prescribes the necessary tests and studies.
It is absolutely pointless to do the tests yourself. Today, diagnostic equipment and screening methods are constantly changing, and the patient simply cannot appoint himself the most effective method for diagnosing a particular disease. In addition, the patient himself will not be able to read and analyze them. Most studies are now paid, and it may turn out that a person will pass expensive, but unnecessary tests, but will not do the vital ones.
The only screening study that you can assign yourself on your own is dermatosyakopia. If there are moles, neoplasms on the skin – you need to carefully monitor them.
