Most of the senior men and women tend to ignore health screenings. However, frequent screenings can help diagnose any medical condition in its initial stages and enable one to take precautions.
For aging women, a health screening can identify health issues for which no apparent signs or symptoms exist. Some of the most highly recommended health screening tests for women include blood pressure checks, cholesterol readings, bone mineral density tests and mammograms. These help in identifying cancers, arthritis and other ailments.
