Here at the Injuryboard, many of us have addressed the issue of how "defensive medicine", actually makes doctors money. What a deal, crying about how you are forced to do something that seems to fill your pockets. Whatever the case, each person should know what additional precautionary tests will keep you healthy.
- Breast cancer and cervical cancer in women
- Colorectal cancer
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Prostate cancer in men
Also as far as understanding tests:
- Interpreting Laboratory Test Results(National Cancer Institute)
- Laboratory Tests(Food and Drug Administration)
- Understanding Your Tests(American Association for Clinical Chemistry)
The need for each test is based upon age, sex, and individual life factors. The key point is, the correct test at the right time can make sure that you stay healthy. There are many people that wish their doctor had been a little more defensive.
