|Screening tests and vaccines are an important part of managing your health. A screening test is done to find diseases in people who don’t have any symptoms. The goal is to find a disease early so lifestyle changes and checkups can reduce the risk of disease, or another goal may be to find it early to treat it most effectively. Screening tests are not used to diagnose a disease, but are used to determine if more testing is needed. Health counseling is important, too. Talk with your healthcare provider to make sure you’re up to date on what you need.
