Preventive Health Screening FAQs

Preventive health screening is essential for several reasons:

  • Early Detection: It can detect health conditions at an early stage when they may be more treatable and manageable.
  • Health Promotion: Screenings can identify risk factors, allowing individuals to make lifestyle changes that promote better health.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Early detection and intervention may prevent the development of more serious and costly health conditions.

The age at which preventive health screenings should begin depends on the specific screening and individual risk factors. For example, blood pressure monitoring often starts in childhood, whereas mammograms and colorectal cancer screenings typically begin at specific ages (e.g., 40 or 50 years old). Our team in Chandler, AZ can advise you on when to start various screenings based on your health status and age.

If a screening test indicates an abnormal result, it does not necessarily mean you have a health condition. Further testing and evaluation may be needed to confirm the findings. We can help guide you through any additional testing or treatment if necessary.
