This medical is performed by a doctor and includes the following:
Full medical history review, including family history. The patient has the opportunity to discuss any health concerns that he may have.
Full examination including testicular examination. If the man is over 45, or if there is any clinical indication of signifiant family history, a rectal examination will be performed.
Height and weight are measured and body mass index is determined, which is a clinically accepted indicator of potential health problems associated with being overweight.
Coronary risk score, which measures the risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next 10 years. It is suitable only for people who have not had the diagnosis of heart disease or stroke.
Urine test to screen for abnormalities that may be due to diabetes, an infection or kidney problems.
Resting ECG to monitor the heart.
Blood test – a full blood test including red cell and white cell counts, liver function, kidney function, diabetes screening test and cholesterol levels.
If the man is over 45, or if there is any clinical indication or significant family history, the prostate enzyme, PSA, is measured.
Spirometry, otherwise known as lung function testing – the patient blows into a spirometer, which measures and reports how the airways are performing.
Audiometry – hearing test.
If the patient is over 45, a bowel cancer screening test, called a faecal occult blood test, is included. We provide the patient with a kit so the test is performed at home and posted in a pre-paid envelope to the laboratory.
