Question: General Checkup

rlh_12 - Thu Oct 14, 2004 1:43 am

Hi, I want to go for a general Checkup.

I just want to know, what is involved, and what tests are performed?

I am a 20yo male.

Also, I have performed a testicular examination, and found no lumps or anything, but can I get the doctor to have a look for me anyway?

Hi rlh_12,
Normally for a general check-up you will have your temperature, blood pressure, heart and respiration rates checked. He/she will listen to you heart and lungs. Assess your abdomen checking your liver and spleen. Testicular exams should also be included. Depending on your doctor, and any problems your express possibly blood work and an urinalysis.
