​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Cardiovascular Risk Screening

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally. In 2020, 1 in 3 deaths in Singapore was caused by cardiovascular disease.

High blood pressure, abnormal blood cholesterol levels and high blood sugar levels increases your cardiovascular risk. 

In the early stages, there are often no signs or symptoms. Regular screening detects these conditions early and allow for intervention to manage them.

Cardiovascular Risk Screening includes:

  1. Height and weight measurement – to check your Body Mass Index (BMI) and determine if your weight is healthy
  2. Non-fasting blood test – to check for any abnormal blood cholesterol or blood sugar levels
  3. Blood pressure measurement – to check for high blood pressure
  4. Screening questionnaire – to check for other risk factors

Consult your regular family doctor to see if Cardiovascular Risk Screening will benefit you.

Cervical Cancer Screening

Cervical Cancer is highly preventable and treatable when detected early.

There are 2 types of Cervical Cancer Screening: Pap test & HPV test. The Pap test is recommended for women between 25-29 years old as the HPV test has a high risk for false positives in this age group. 

However, the HPV test is proven to be very effective in detecting abnormalities in women aged 30 years and above.

The recommended frequency for the respective tests is as follows:

  • Pap test: Once every 3 years (for ages 25-29)
  • HPV test: Once every 5 years (for ages 30-69)
