Why come in for a yearly physical exam?
Catching disease or illness early is key to a successful treatment. Unfortunately, many of these health issues do not show overt symptoms until they have progressed to an advanced stage. Fortunately, the screenings within our yearly physical for men in Easley will catch any health concerns early, allowing us to treat or manage them before they get worse. When you visit our urgent care center, you’ll talk one on one with our doctor about your medical history and the medical history of your family. This information will help us pick what tests and screenings are right for you. At AFC Urgent Care Easley, the most common screenings and tests include:
Body Mass Index
The percentage of fat you have in relation to your height and weight is used to generate your BMI or Body Mass index. This is used to check for obesity and the severity if it exists.
High blood cholesterol can lead to heart disease. Men over the age of 35 should have their cholesterol levels checked yearly. Catching high levels now can make it much easier to manage than trying to tackle it when you are older.
Kidney disease and stroke have been linked to high blood pressure in studies. Having this checked in your yearly screening can help you reduce your risk of these diseases.
Men over the age of 50 should be screened for signs of cancer. Early stages are much easier to treat, but often show no overt symptoms. Early detection is key to a successful treatment. Our urgent care center will check for skin, lung, oral, colorectal, and prostate cancer.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Our experienced staff can screen you for many common STDs during your yearly exam. With our lab being onsite, we can in many cases get results back to you quickly. Common STDs we can screen for include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis.
We recommend you get tested if you fall into any of these categories:
- Have sex with men
- Have unprotected sex with multiple partners
- Have ever injected drugs
- Have ever paid for sex
- Have had partners in the past who are infected with HIV
- Are being treated for additional STDs
- Had a blood transfusion between 1978 and 1985
Depression is a very treatable illness. If you feel down or have little interest in your daily life recently, talk to our doctor about how we can get you back on the right path again.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
This condition involves a large or swollen blood vessel that can burst in your stomach, often without warning. You should have this screened by your doctor if you have smoked more than 100 cigarettes in your lifetime and are between the ages of 65 and 75.
This disease can cause many problems in various parts of your body including your feet, eyes, heart, kidneys, and nerves. If your blood pressure readings are higher than 135/80 we suggest you get tested for diabetes. Catching it early makes it much easier to manage and will lessen the long-term symptoms.
