How do routine annual exams prevent chronic disease?
Chronic diseases, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, all develop gradually. As the disease progresses, you can prevent it from turning into a full-blown chronic condition, but only if you know the problem exists.
Oftentimes chronic diseases don’t cause symptoms until they reach an advanced stage, so many people don’t find out they have a serious condition until it’s no longer preventable. With routine annual exams, however, Dr. Anjum can detect small changes that occurred since your last exam, so he can identify the disease and help you stop it from getting worse.
Will I receive health screenings?
Dr. Anjum stays up to date with the latest recommendations for adult health screenings. Based on your age and risk factors, he reminds you when it’s time to get screened for diseases such as colon cancer, breast cancer, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and osteoporosis.
He also offers lung cancer screening, when indicated, and routinely performs skin cancer screenings and blood work to check cholesterol numbers and blood sugar levels.
