Women’s Health Issues: Taking Care of Ourselves – 40 and beyond

August 15, 2016 by OMG Cayman


Getting checked early can help you stop diseases like

  • cancer
  • diabetes
  • osteoporosis

Screening tests can spot illnesses even before you have symptoms. Which screening tests you need depends on

  • your age
  • family history
  • your own health history
  • and other risk factors (e.g. where you live)

Screening Checklist

Screenings may be recommended for:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Osteoporosis
  • Skin Cancer
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Cholesterol Levels
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Glaucoma

Ask Your Doctor About Screenings

  • It’s good health sense to talk with your doctor about screening tests.
  • Some tests, such as a Pap test or breast exam, should be a routine part of every woman’s health care.
  • Other tests might be necessary based on your risk factors.
  • Proper screening won’t always prevent a disease, but it can often find a disease early enough to give you the best chance of overcoming it.
