Why have a health screen?

It is advisable for men and women over 45 to consider a health screen especially if you have one or more of the following risk factors or symptoms:

• Smokers or anyone who has a significant history of smoking
• Family history of heart disease, cancer or strokes
• Diabetes
• High cholesterol or blood pressure
• Stressful lifestyle
• Inactive lifestyle

In the case of cancer and heart disease, successful treatment and recovery is strongly influenced by early detection. The advanced scanning techniques employed by Insight Medical detect early signs of disease in the heart, lung or bowel (colon and rectum) which, in the UK, affects hundreds of thousands of us every year.

Having a scan in these areas is fast, accurate, less invasive than existing techniques and will give the majority of people the peace of mind they are seeking.

For others, it could detect the earliest signs of problems – which will mean any treatment can have the best chance of success. It can be a lifesaver.

If you think a health screen may be worth considering for these reasons, or perhaps because you feel you aren’t getting fast enough answers elsewhere, then talk to us about it, today.
