Want to assess your health in Bangkok? Health check ups may actually save your life. If you have any disease that is asymptomatic or that you may not be aware of, a complete health check up will point in the right direction and you can get the medical advice and treatment that you need to nip problems in the bud.
What does a health check up cover?
If you have ever had a health check for insurance, work or any other reason, you probably have some idea of the basics involved. If that was a few years ago, then you should know that, thanks to medical advances, more diagnostic tests are available now. These are done with new, advanced technology and give clearer information. Among the tests that may be a part of a health check up are:
A physical exam
A dental check up
An eye exam
Blood work (these can be basic or complex)
Imaging tests (these, too, can be just x-ray or even other advanced imaging tests)
Bone density test
Mammogram (for women)
Prostate cancer test (for men)
Pap smear (for women)
You can get routine and basic tests, or get a full comprehensive health care package, that may be more expensive but will give you a lot more information about the state of your health.
