Take Care

Getting routine exams during a pandemic can be of concern, but these exams are crucial to monitoring your health. Beenish Bhaidani, DO, an obstetrician/gynecologist at Medical City McKinney, says annual health screenings for women are important and should be kept.

The typical annual women’s health exam includes a screening, counseling, evaluation and immunization. Depending on age and health history, screening measures are taken for cervical cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer and osteoporosis.

Bhaidani recommends getting a pap smear as part of an exam. It can be used for preventative and screening care and is designed to detect changes before disease advances.
