Though there is really no set rule, it is preferable for men to get a general health check up done periodically once they cross a certain age. This could be 35 or 40 years. The tests included in typical health checks for men include those for hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, cholesterol (lipid profile), cancer screening (for skin, prostate, colon and testicular), HIV and also eye (glaucoma). There may be a physical exam for certain conditions the doctors can assess and anticipate. Any treatment will be based on the reports from the tests. Only where the physician suspects something or if the reports are inconclusive, he or she may refer the man to a specialist or order more conclusive tests. One should be prepared to spare half a day for all the tests to be completed. If some tests, like the diabetes blood sugar test requires you to give fasting blood and again after having food, this has to be done. The results are detailed reports authenticated by the expert in each field of medicine. After checking these reports the doctor can suggest further course of treatment if necessary. If there were further tests that need to be done of if the person has to see another specialist, the doctor would refer a specialist as well. If need be the specialist and the referring doctor will co-ordinate and decide on the further course of treatment.
