tests for over 60's
I am 61 and would like to know what tests are important to have for the future. I regularly have mammograms, pap smears and 2 years ago had a bone density test which was perfect. I eat healthily and exercise moderately, but strokes and cancer of the liver are in my family. I do not wish to have unnecessary tests, but need to be proactive.

LD, you will first have to tell me whether you’re male or female. I will also need to know whether you suffer from any disorders, which medicines you’re taking and whether there is a family history of anything serious. Good luck.
PS. Please post your reply as a new question to make sure that i receive it. Good luck.
