Basic Health Screening & Full Body Check-up

What is health screening?

A health screening is the process of detecting diseases or medical conditions in people who may look or feel healthy.


Health screenings are recommended as some people face a higher risk for developing certain conditions. As some conditions may not produce symptoms until an advanced stage, the only way to detect them early is through a health screening.


Health screenings involve consultation with a medical professional which may be followed by laboratory, radiology and other tests.


Your doctor will be able to advise you on tests that are relevant for you, based on your family history, lifestyle habits and overall health. As you grow older, the type and frequency of tests may change.
