Optional Test

Mammogram/Breast Ultrasound (available in Tin Shui Wai Centre )

Mammography can detect small breast lumps and unusual shadows. Ultrasound can distinguish between lumps and water sacs and it is suitable for pregnant women and young women with high breast tissue density. Doctors often advise that women over 50 or with potential risk should receive a screening mammography and ultrasound every one to two years.

 

Prostate Gland and Urinary Function Assessment (available in Wo Lok Centre)

Prostate gland enlargement is a normal physiological process of aging and it is a common condition as men get older. Symptoms include frequent or painful urination, blood in urine, difficulty in starting urination, weak urine stream velocity, etc. It may cause complications such as urethritis, ureteral obstruction and hydro-nephrosis.

 

Benign prostatic hypertrophy is different from prostate cancer, but both conditions can exist together. If you have urinary symptoms, you should seek medical advice as soon as possible to find out the cause.

 

The package includes the following tests: Bladder Outflow Obstruction Assessment for Urinary Flow, Bladder Ultrasound for Residual Urine, Urine Routine Test, Prostate Specific Antigen Test and evaluation of your prostate through ‘International Prostate Symptom Score (I-PSS)’ by doctor.

 

Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry Test (available in Jordan/Tin Shui Wai/Wo Lok Centre)

Osteoporosis is common in middle-aged and menopausal women.

 

Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) uses X-rays to measure the bone density of the lumbar spine or femur to accurately assess bone health and osteoporosis. The amount of radiation in this examination is slight and is only one-tenth of chest and lung X-rays.

 

Tonometry (Glaucoma)

There are about 120,000 glaucoma patients in Hong Kong. Middle-aged women who have myopia or hyperopia of more than 600 degrees, cardiovascular diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, etc., or have had glaucoma in their family members have a greater chance of getting glaucoma.

 

Glaucoma is an eye disease that damages the optic nerve and may not have any symptoms in the early stages. Through the non-contact tonometer test, glaucoma can be diagnosed early to slow down or prevent vision loss.

 

Cervical Smear

Cervical cancer is one of the few cancers that can be prevented through health checks. It is recommended that women aged between 25 and 70 who have had sexual experience undergo regular cervical smear tests to detect early abnormal cervical lesions and treat cancer at its early stage.

 

If your second smear result is normal, you should repeat smear tests every 3 years.

 

HPV vaccines can effectively prevent most cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers, but they cannot prevent diseases caused by other types of HPV, nor can they treat or eliminate infected viruses. Therefore, vaccines cannot replace the cervical smear tests.

 

Faecal Occult Blood Test (2 Samples)

Of all causes of cancer death in Hong Kong, colorectal cancer is ranked second and more than 90% of which occurred in patients 50 years of age or older. There might be no signs or symptoms until the disease has advanced, depending on the type and stage of cancer. In most cases, colorectal cancer has a higher chance of cure if detected early and treated adequately.

 

The Government’s Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme subsidises asymptomatic Hong Kong residents aged between 50 and 75 to receive screening service for prevention of colorectal cancer. Please visit www.colonscreen.gov.hk/tc/index.html for more information.

 

Bone and Muscle Health Analysis

Having healthy bones and muscles is vital to our posture, balance, endurance and fitness. Bones are composed of minerals (such as calcium and phosphorus), collagen, proteins, cells and water, renewed and remodeled by the above substances. Old bones will be replaced by new bones. Normal aging will deteriorate this process, leading to gradual loss of bone mass and osteoporosis, which greatly increases the risk of falls and fractures.

 

If you are not within the age range of the subsidy, you may consider undergoing a faecal occult blood test at your own expense. Your family doctor will provide a feasible follow-up plan depending on the health check result.
