Health Screenings That Every Adult Should Know About

Screenings can help detect medical problems sooner; in many cases, early detection is the key to successful treatment. It's important to know about what screenings are available, and when they’re the right option for you.

Here, we’ve grouped screenings into what’s appropriate for different age groups. Find the list that’s right for you, then talk to your health care provider, who can explain what’s involved and help you decide if and when you should be screened.

Note: You can print the suggested screening list for your age and gender, or select the screening list across age ranges below. The document will be a useful conversation starter with your physician as you personalize the timing of each test to meet your needs.
