Regular health checks may save your life. IMED Hospitals has created a preventive medicine unit that coordinates the work of various specialities to provide a complete health check in Spain, with a private room and a medical assistant throughout the process.

Here we provide a list of the important screening tests you need to take throughout your life.

  • Cardiovascular disease, to check at least once per year your blood pressure and cholesterol levels is important since they are indicators of cardiovascular diseases like blood vessel diseases or stroke.
  • Colorectal cancer screening, a faecal occult blood test detects tiny amounts of blood (often released from cancers or pre-cancers) in the stool , this should be done each 2 years.
  • Skin cancer, inspect your body skin on regular basis with the help of a full-length mirror and report to your doctor any unusual moles .
  • Glaucoma disease, test your glaucoma every two years once you are over age of 40 since it can damage the optic nerve and you can lose your peripheral or side vision.
  • Dental check-ups , will reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and tooth loss.
  • Cervical screening , pap smears help protect against cervical cancer which is regarded as one of the most preventable of all cancers, as long as it’s detected early.
  • Bone density testing, can identify osteoporosis which is a disorder characterized by a thinning of the bones causing them to fracture or break them.
  • Breast screening for women, a clinical breast examination and mammography will help to to detect a breast cancer in a early stage with chances for successful treatment.
