Leading a taxing lifestyle is likely to attract life-threatening diseases. Caution, therefore, needs to be reserved to nullify any potential feasibility.

Tests for People in Their 20s

  • Breast-Self Exam: A BSE is carried out at home to check for changes and problems in the tissue. Performing a BSE leads you to early detection of any abnormalities that can trigger breast cancer. BSE therefore enables one to take precautions from an early stage of cancer.
  • Pap Smear Test: This is a screening conducted to diagnose any potential cancerous or pre-cancerous activities in the cervix. Studies have shown that abnormal cells, which trigger such activities, are activated amongst young women. Hence, a Pap Smear Test should be taken at a regular interval of 3 months, to minimize the risk of cancer.

Tests for People in Their 30s

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): This test calculates the electro-activeness of the heart. It recognises any possible causes of chronic heart diseases. It is vital to take such tests at an early age, with 30 being ideal, to cure and reduce its possibilities.
  • Pelvic Exam: A pelvic exam is a step taken to keep your body healthy. It is essential because it assists in detecting abnormalities such as growth.

Test for people in their 40s

  • Mammogram : This test calculates the electro-activeness of the heart. It recognises any possible causes of chronic heart diseases. It is vital to take such tests at an early age, with 30 being ideal, to cure and reduce its possibilities.
  • Colon Cancer Screening: This is conducted to recognize the formation of cancer in the large intestine. According to Alfred Neugut, chief oncologist at Columbia University Medical Center, polyps, a substance developed in the large intestine, turns into cancer in a period of 10 years. However, it can be removed at an early age.
