Thousands of people died unnecessarily in 2014 because they didn’t go for simple routine health screening tests. Thousands more will die in 2015.
Make sure you and your loved ones are not among them by starting the year with some essential routine health screening tests.
Our doctor has seen too many people suffer more than they need, or even lose their lives because disease is detected far too late for want of a few simple tests.This is why we want to encourage everyone to have regular health tests.
Many British expats on the Costa Blanca seem to be particularly vulnerable because language barriers or ignorance of health screening available means they are even less likely to attend for routine screening.
Routine health checks and early diagnosis can stop some of the biggest killers from claiming lives – including heart disease, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer. So see your GP today to find out what screening is available, or if you prefer take advantage of our up to half price health check offer, which is open to everyone.
Our health check includes screening for cervical, breast, bowel and prostate cancer. Comprehensive blood tests will be performed and patients will be screened for many conditions, including diabetes, liver and kidney disease, anaemia, infection, bowel cancer, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and thyroid problems.
You will also receive an ECG, BMI check, skin cancer and mole check, dental examination, chiropodist foot check and osteopath body alignment check.
“Even if you feel well, you don’t know what is going on inside your body – so health screening is essential for everyone,” stresses Medcare’s Dr Hussain.
“Over the years our health checks have saved many lives as patients have discovered they have the early stages of diseases. It is not easy finding out you have a life-threatening illness, but not finding out will almost certainly be a lot worse.”
