Check Up Center

About the Department

Check-up is a general physical examination, which gives a general assessment of an individual’s health condition through scanning the possible diseases that have not caused any complaints up to now.

Early diagnosis of a disease is essential in that it increases the success of the treatment. Therefore, check-up plays a vital role if one has a critical disease like cancer. Early awareness and early treatment will increase the life quality as well as life time of the individual. The tests that must be included in a standard check-up control are as follows; blood count, blood tests that assess organ functions (liver, kidney, etc.), sedimentation, cholesterol and lipid levels, thyroid (goiter), urinalysis, whole abdominal ultrasonography, pulmonary graphy, electrocardiography and scanning of stool in blood.

In addition to the tests which everybody above the age of 40 should have, we recommend the following tests to be performed even if there is not an inherited risk; eye examination, cardiological examinations and additional examinations for cancer scanning. Those who have inherited risks should not wait for the age of 40 in order to have these tests. Those who are at the risk category must have the additional tests starting from their 30’s.

Another purpose of having a check-up is to determine the possible disease risks that are carried with age, sex, cigarette smoking, and hormonal periods particularly in women (such as fertility-menostasis), to research the diabetes, coronary artery disease, seizure and cancer risks that are sourcing from family history.

Additional check-up examinations for those who have a coronary artery disease risk sourcing from family are as follows; HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, effort test and echocardiography. Women who have cancer history in their families must receive the following procedures once a year; PAP smear test, breast ultrasonography, mammography, respiratory function tests and computer tomography. Men who have a cancer history in their families must have the following procedures once a year; prostate-specific antigen, respiratory function test and computer tomography.

It’s very important for every healthy individual to have a check-up once a year.
