How to start your health screening?

A full blood count can be a good place to start when checking in on your health. It looks at the major cells in your blood including white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Abnormal levels of these can indicate nutritional deficiencies, heart conditions, cancer, bone marrow issues, tissue inflammation and infection.

Lipid profile

LIPP

Lipids are fat-like substances which are important parts of cells and are a source of energy. A lipid panel measures the level of specific lipids in blood to help assess your risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It includes the determination of total cholesterol (CHOL), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), and triglycerides (TRIG).


Screening when no risk factors present: for adults, every four to six years; for youths, once between the ages of 9 and 11 and again between ages 17 and 21.


Monitoring: at regular intervals when risk factors are present, when prior results showed high-risk levels, and/or to monitor the effectiveness of treatment.


Note: includes indirect measurement of VLDL and two additional parameters: Non-HDL Cholesterol (nHDLc) and Ratio of total cholesterol to HDL cholesterol (TC/H).

How is your blood pressure?

Every man should have their blood pressure checked regularly, and patients with other cardiovascular risk factors such as a family history should check their blood pressure more frequently. This is because raised blood pressure puts more strain on your heart and is the biggest risk for heart disease.


Screening can be achieved through a blood pressure cuff for a one-off reading or a 24-hour monitor to help make sure your blood pressure isn’t temporarily low or high due to external factors.

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) 24 hours

Are you worried about high blood pressure?


High blood pressure contributes to heart attacks and strokes. A one-off test at a hospital does not give a complete picture as your blood pressure rises and falls throughout the day. An ABPM test over 24 hrs allows a doctor to tailor medicine and advice specifically to you.


Physiologist interpretation is included in the price.

Checking your liver's health

Your liver is one of your body's most important organs, it helps you breakdown food and convert it to energy, getting rid of waste and toxins and regulating some hormones. Your liver can become inflamed and progressively damaged through excessive food intake, alcohol consumption and viral hepatitis. Once inflammation has led to scarring (cirrhosis) then liver disease is irreversible. Blood tests measure the level of different enzymes which, if raised, can indicate that your liver is inflamed also known as a liver function panel.

The most common cancer among men

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer found in men in the UK. It tends to be a slow-growing cancer, but there are also aggressive, fast-growing types. Screening tests can find the disease early, sometimes before symptoms develop when treatments are most effective.  A PSA test can be used to if you are in a risk group such as over 50, have a family history of prostate cancer or are African American to screen for prostate cancer.

Prostate profile (total and free PSA)

PR2

Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced primarily by cells in the prostate, a small gland that encircles the urethra in males and produces a fluid that makes up part of semen. Most of the PSA that the prostate produces is released into this fluid, but small amounts of it are also released into the bloodstream. This test measures the amount of Total and Free PSA in the blood. The ratio of Free to Total PSA may help discriminate between prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Do you have a family history of colorectal cancer?

All men should get screened for colorectal (colon or rectal) cancer by age 50. People with a family history of colorectal cancer should get a colonoscopy even sooner, sometimes from the age of 25 if it has been found to be genetic. There are several different tests such as that can help detect colon cancer such as the CEA test, but colonoscopy continues to be the gold standard.

Carcino Embryonic Antigen CEA

CEA

Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a protein that is present in certain tissues of a developing baby (foetus). By the time a baby is born, it drops to a very low level. In adults, CEA is normally present at very low levels in the blood but may be elevated with certain types of cancer. This test measures the amount of CEA in the blood to help evaluate individuals diagnosed with cancer.


CEA is a tumour marker. Originally, it was thought that CEA was a specific marker for colon cancer, but further study has shown that an increase in CEA may be seen in a wide variety of other cancers. CEA can also be increased in some non-cancer-related conditions, such as inflammation, cirrhosis, peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis, rectal polyps, emphysema, and benign breast disease, and in smokers. For this reason, it is not useful as a general cancer screening tool, but it does have a role in evaluating response to cancer treatment. When an individual has been diagnosed with cancer, an initial baseline test for CEA may be performed. If this level is elevated, then subsequent serial testing of CEA may be performed to monitor the cancer as the individual undergoes treatment.
