Importance of a Regular Gynecological Exam

Annual gynecological exams - or well-woman exams - are an important part of preventive health care for every woman. They provide you an opportunity to ask questions, address any health concerns you may have and learn about risk factors for new problems that may arise in the future.

During an annual exam, your doctor will assess your overall health, perform a physical exam of the pelvis and breasts and screen for common diseases. Because conditions like cervical cancer and ovarian cancer have minimal signs or symptoms until they are advanced, an annual exam can help detect these earlier, improving treatment outcomes.

Even if you don’t think you have a problem, an annual well-woman exam plays an important role in improving your overall health and well-being.

 

Preventative Care

Digital mammography takes an electronic image of the breast and stores it on a computer, where it can be better analyzed for potential abnormalities. Monroe Clinic offers the convenience of digital mammography in two locations: Highland Women's Care in Freeport and Monroe.

Monroe Clinic also offers patients stereotactic breast biopsy, a non-surgical option used to confirm or rule out breast cancer. The procedure is less invasive and delivers quicker results. Plus, there is no need for sedation so most patients can drive themselves home after the procedure.
