What needs to be ordered yearly for a healthy person!?This is a common question I get from my patients almost everyday.

The answer depends on your age, sex , past medical history and family history! There are certain screening test just for female patients including ; mammogram , pap smear and chlamydia test and o

n the other hand PSA (prostate specific antigen) is a blood test to check prostate cancer in male patients 50 years and older.
There are other screening test like ; blood work for cholesterol which is ordered in everyone older than 35 years .

Colon cancer screening has reduced the rate of colon cancer in United states greatly and it could be checked in different ways including ; colonoscopy every 10 years after the age of 50 ( or 40 if there is a family history of colon cancer in the first degree relatives ) or fecal blood test yearly.
