According to dr. Jenly who has over 20 years of experience in Medical Check Ups, these medical examinations aim to determine a person’s current state of health. By having regular MCUs, health problems or diseases that have yet to show any symptoms can be detected as early as possible. The sooner the check-up is performed, the better a person’s health will be. The results of the examinations can help to determine what action to take next and implement a healthy lifestyle before symptoms can develop. Consultation with a doctor plays an important role in making changes to improve your health, leading to a longer life and benefits for the body, mind, and soul.

MCUs for females usually include a pap smear, CA 125 test, and breast ultrasound, whereas for males, uroflowmetry measures the flow of urine and a PSA test is used as a screening method for prostate cancer.

Aside from personal prevention purposes, an MCU is also one of the requirements for a visa application, particularly for students or workers who wish to study or work abroad. Depending on the country, requirements may vary. Mainly, they require a physical examination, chest X-ray, and blood tests. The healthcare provider will make copies as appropriate.

We recommend an MCU examination considers the following timescales: for female patients a breast ultrasound should be conducted outside of 7 days before and 7 days after menstruation. For pap smear tests, patients should avoid sexual intercourse 1-3 days before, and the test should not be performed during the 7 days after menstruation. It is recommended to undertake an MCU once a year, however, if there are any abnormal findings, it is recommended to increase this to once every 6 months.
