Women: Make Sure to Get These Essential Health Screenings

Posted in: Blogs , English

Staying on top of routine screenings is one of the most important aspects of healthy aging. Many serious conditions don’t present symptoms in their early stages, and they can become much more difficult to treat as they progress. The goods news: these regular tests can detect conditions when they’re at their most treatable.

Important Health Screenings for Women

Based on your family history and personal risk factors, you may need to begin certain screenings earlier.


Ask your doctor which other screenings you should consider based on your symptoms and risk factors. Schedule a virtual visit or in-person appointment with your St. Joseph and Texas A&M Health Network primary care physician to learn where you should start.
