Many diseases occur without initially having symptoms, such as high blood pressure or cholesterol, and may later cause a heart attack or stroke. This shows the importance of regular tests, which help to detect these diseases early and treat them in a timely manner. In addition to general examinations, there are special examinations for women and other for men.
The German Association of Gynecologists recommends an examination of the bacteria known as Chlamydiaceae until the age of 25 years, indicating that these bacteria can lead to urethritis, genital and rectum. These bacteria may cause fertility loss or, during pregnancy, lead to miscarriage.
From the age of 20 years, women should have a cervical cancer screening and, as of the age of 30 years, breast cancer screening should be done.
For its part, the German Society for the treatment of cancer recommended men to be screened for prostate cancer starting at the age of 45 years, pointing to the need for tests of white or black skin cancer for both sexes at the age of 35 years. Colon cancer screening should be performed at age 50 for both sexes.
General tests The
German professor Ulrich Fulch has recommended a general examination at the age of 35, where the heart, abdomen, lung, blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels are examined to detect the risk of diabetes, arteriosclerosis, heart attack and early stroke. The doctor added that the general tests should also include urine examination, to detect kidney disease and bladder early.
