Health Tip: Get Screened

(HealthDay News) -- Screenings are medical tests used to check for diseases and health conditions, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, cancer and mental health issues, says the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Your age, gender and medical history help determine which screenings are best for you.

When problems are found early, they may be easier to treat. The agency offers an online tool called myhealthfinder, which you can use to get personalized preventive recommendations.

Additionally, you can talk with your doctor about your family's medical history to figure out which screenings are right for you.
