We usually get a medical check-up every year as instructed by school or company, yet we don’t really understand what kind of examinations and why should we get it…
Aren’t there quite a lot of people who have those questions?
In this opportunity, we would like to introduce about health examinations that seems to be known, yet actually not well known.
\\\ Types of medical check-up ///
There are actually various types of health examinations.
① General medical examination
② Additional medical examination
③ Breast cancer/Cervical cancer screening
・ Target: Women of even-numbered age who are 40 years old or older who wish to undergo a general medical examination.
※ The fee is different for people aged 40-48 and those aged 50 and over, because the shooting method for the inspection is different.
④ Cervical cancer screening (Single consultation)
※ People aged 36-38 who are getting a general medical examination, can also undergo the screening together.
⑤ Hepatitis virus test (Optional)
※ALT (GPT): A test item that checks the degree of damage to cells in the liver. 4-44 IU / L is said to be a normal value, and if it is high, it is suspected from alcohol overdose, obesity, drugs, hepatitis virus, etc.
\\\ Why there are different test items for each age? ///
For example, the onset of “breast cancer” are on its peak in the late 40s, but some begin to increase in the 30s, and the onset is conspicuous in the relatively young age. Therefore, it is recommended to do examination regularly starting from the 30s.
In this way, since the risk of diseases that are likely to occur according to age is known to some extent, the necessary test items are set in preparation for the risk according to age.
