7 Reasons to have a Well Woman Exam at Brevard Family Walk In Clinic


By Dr. Jansen Kobobel, MD

Having regular Well Woman exams is very important, especially in today’s healthcare environment. Potentially life-threatening illness and huge medical bills can be avoided by engaging in preventative practices and early screening for these:

  1. Breast Cancer – Early detection offers a better chance for cure and reduces the likeliness of spreading to lymph nodes and other vital organs.
  2. Cervical Cancer – Early detection via Pap smear can result in the removal of any abnormal cells in the cervix before they turn into cancer.
  3. Osteoporosis – Do you know the risk factors for osteoporosis? There are no physical signs so screening is required. Early detection of osteoporosis can results in treatments that arrest continued bone loss.
  4. Skin Cancer – In Florida, where skin in under constant exposure to harsh rays, it is imperative to have regular screenings for the number one cause of cancer.
  5. High Blood Pressure – Risk for high blood pressure increases as we age. Heart attacks and strokes can occur without warning.
  6. Type 2 Diabetes – According to WebMD, One-third of Americans with diabetes don’t know they have it. This is the most common form of diabetes and can be managed with early detection.
  7. Colorectal Cancer – Early detection can result in the removal of polyps before cancer develops. Screenings should be begin by age 50.
