You can be in good shape, and also have heart disease or cancer. If something’s wrong with your heart, you might not always know. Luckily, today’s technology can help Doctors detect heart disease and cancer long before symptoms show up. There are tests your Doctor can suggest. You could go for years without realizing you have clogged arteries that leave you a heartbeat away from a heart attack or cancerous cells or masses that can kill you. In the early stage of heart disease, symptoms may be absent or easily missed. Even a full-blown heart attack may not have the sudden, severe chest pain that you see in the movies. Some heart attacks cause symptoms so mild that people mistake them for indigestion. Many cancers are silent killers as well, and early detection is key in surviving these deadly diseases.

Get the Screenings You Need
Screenings are tests that look for diseases before you have symptoms. Blood pressure checks and tests for high cholesterol are examples of screenings. You can get some screenings, such as blood pressure readings, in your doctor’s office. Others such as a colonoscopy, for example, a test for colorectal cancer, require special equipment, so you may need to see a specialist for these exams. After a screening test, ask when you will see the results and who you should talk to about them.
