    Health check up in Spain

    Health check up in Spain

    Health check up in Spain helps to find problems before they start with the performance of exams and screenings.

    The health check is a preventive service provided for healthy people. Prevention is basic to treat efficiently any condition detected on time.

    There are different types of health checks available and the tests programmed will mainly depend on criteria like age, gender, personal risk factors, medical history, etc…

    Risk factors vary according to the age and lifestyle choices of patients (smoking habits or physical inactivity for example…). These factors impact on their health and, over the years, the probability to suffer some particular kind of pathologies (heart problems, cancer…) will eventually increase.

    This is why early diagnosis is so important.
