Checklist for Your Next Checkup

Get the Screenings You Need

Screenings are tests that look for diseases before you have symptoms. Blood pressure checks and tests for high blood cholesterol are examples of screenings.

You can get some screenings, such as blood pressure readings, in your doctor's office. Others, such as colonoscopy, a test for colon cancer, need special equipment, so you may need to go to a different office.

After a screening test, ask when you will see the results and who you should talk to about them.

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. If you are between the ages of 65 and 75 and have ever been a smoker, (smoked 100 or more cigarettes in your lifetime) get screened once for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). AAA is a bulging in your abdominal aorta, your largest artery. An AAA may burst, which can cause dangerous bleeding and death.


Fast Facts: Learn! Fast!

What should I do to live a healthy lifestyle?

  • Screening tests, such as colorectal cancer tests, can find diseases early when they are easier to treat. Some men need certain screening tests earlier, or more often, than others.
  • Talk to your doctor about which tests listed are right for you, when you should have them, and how often. This may include cholesterol and blood pressure checks, diabetes tests, depression screenings, prostate cancer screening, and sexually transmitted disease screening.
  • Don't Smoke. But if you do smoke, talk to your doctor about quitting.
  • Eat a Healthy Diet with a variety of foods, including fruit, vegetables, animal or vegetable protein (such as meat, fish, chicken, eggs, beans, lentils, tofu, or tempeh) and grains (such as rice). Limit the amount of saturated fat you eat.
  • Be Physically Active. Start small and work up to a total of 20-30 minutes most days of the week.
  • Stay at a Healthy Weight by balancing the number of calories you eat with the number you burn off by your activities. Remember to watch portion sizes.
  • Drink Alcohol Only in Moderation. If you drink alcohol, have no more than 2 drinks a day.
