Focus on women's health

Prevention is key to women's health. A "well-woman" exam can assess breast and gynecological health, as well as address diet, exercise and supplements. This annual exam can be done by a family practice doctor, gynecologist, midwife, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant. If problems or significant risk factors are detected, you may be referred to a specialist.

Screening recommendations vary throughout a women’s lifetime; this overview can help guide your visit with your provider.
