Men and their Yearly Check-up

Why it is important to have a yearly check-up

The yearly physical is a way to keep up with your health concerns before little things become big things. Regular check-ups enables a man to build a relationship with their doctor so they can discuss their own personal health habits and plans for disease prevention.

Men's health check-ups can take 30 to 45 minutes long which includes a physical exam and a discussion with your doctor. Men should have their blood pressure monitored and a blood test that measures their cholesterol levels as part of their physical.

Finding a doctor

  • Get recommendations from friends, family, or co-workers
  • Check with your local department of health, especially if they provide clinical services
  • Call the medical teaching institutions within the universities in your area
  • If you are enrolled in an HMO or PPO group, you may be limited to choosing a provider within that network who is accepting new patients.

Education

Knowing what test your doctor will be performing on you during a regular check up is informative.:

Tests include:

  • Blood pressure (every 2 years)
  • Cholesterol (every 5 years)
  • Height and weight (periodically)

Exams:

  • Standard cancer: thyroid, mouth, skin, testicles, lymph nodes (every 3 years)
  • Dental (every year)
  • Colonoscopy (at age 50, then every 10 years)

Immunizations:

  • Tetanus-Diptheria (every 10 years)

Experts recommend keeping a written list of questions and any suspected symptoms to mention during your visit. A regular check-up is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.
