What is an annual physical


An annual physical is a routine checkup with your doctor that includes a physical exam and a discussion of your health history. The purpose of an annual physical is to:


  • Screen for health problems: Your doctor will check for signs of common health problems, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
  • Update your vaccinations: Your doctor will make sure you are up-to-date on your vaccinations, which can help protect you from serious diseases.
  • Discuss your health history: Your doctor will ask you about your medical history, including any current health problems, past health problems, and family history of diseases.
  • Answer your questions: Your doctor will answer any questions you have about your health.


Annual physicals are recommended for people of all ages, but they are especially important for people who are at higher risk for certain health problems. Some good candidates for annual physicals include:


  • People over the age of 50: As you get older, your risk for certain health problems increases. An annual physical can help you stay healthy and detect any problems early.
  • People with chronic health conditions: If you have a chronic health condition, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, an annual physical can help you manage your condition and prevent complications.
  • People who are pregnant: Pregnant women need to have regular checkups with their doctor to monitor their health and the health of their baby.
  • People who are planning to have surgery: If you are planning to have surgery, your doctor will need to do an annual physical to make sure you are healthy enough to have the surgery.


The specific components of an annual physical vary depending on your age, sex, and health history. However, most annual physicals include the following:


Physical exam:

  • Your doctor will check your height, weight, blood pressure, pulse, and breathing. They will also listen to your heart and lungs and check your reflexes.
  • A discussion of your health history: Your doctor will ask you about your medical history, including any current health problems, past health problems, and family history of diseases.
  • Blood tests: Your doctor may order blood tests to check your cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and other important measures of your health.
  • Urinalysis: Your doctor may order a urinalysis to check for signs of infection or other health problems.
  • Other tests: Depending on your age, sex, and health history, your doctor may order other tests, such as a mammogram, Pap smear, or prostate exam.

If you have any concerns about your health, be sure to talk to your doctor during your annual physical. They can help you address any problems and keep you healthy.
