Your Annual Checkup

Changes to your sleep, aches, pains, digestive system should be part of your discussion. While you're there, don't be afraid to ask questions about any screenings you might be due for. Some to think about are; lung screening, mammogram, thyroid screening or a colonoscopy will help detect illness early.
