Respected physician discusses the importance of general gynecological care
Many individuals understand the importance of regular dental checkups in order to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, yet they only think about physician care if they’re ill or have a problem. While all individuals are encouraged to visit their family care physician for general checkups, it’s even more critical that women make gynecological care an annual priority.
A well-woman checkup offers the patient important health screenings and preventative care. During this visit, the physician will do a pelvic exam, pap smear, and breast exam to screen for any abnormal lumps, bumps, or growths and to ensure there are no problems bubbling under the surface. As with many medical conditions, problems can be occurring in the woman’s body before she feels any pain or symptoms. With most medical problems, the sooner they are detected the easier treatment will be.
