Health Tip: Seniors Need Preventive Care

(HealthDay News) -- It's important for seniors to see a doctor regularly to stay on top of any potential health issues.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests these preventive services for older people:

  • Annual vaccine for flu, and regular vaccination for pneumonia.
  • Breast cancer screening every two years for women aged 50 to 74. Some women deemed at higher risk of breast cancer may need more frequent screening.
  • Regular colorectal cancer screening beginning at age 50.
  • Screenings for diabetes and high cholesterol.
  • Bone density scan for signs of osteoporosis.
