In modern medicine, it is essential to keep people healthy by taking measures before the emergence of diseases because some diseases have irreversible consequences. Moreover, treatment process is expensive and difficult.
Nowadays, many diseases which can negatively affect quality of life such as cancer, heart and lung diseases, etc. can be diagnosed in advance with regular check-up programs. Early diagnosis provides the opportunity to treat many fatal diseases.
It is recommended that everyone without any complaints or diseases undergo a check-up program on regular basis at least once a year. Time to repeat check-up and content of check up vary according to age, gender and family/genetic risk factors (cancer, heart diseases, etc in the family).
Each individual’s risk factors are different so any check-up program should also be tailor-made.
