Mental Health Screening
A mental health screening is an exam of your emotional health.
A screening test is done in order to to help you determine whether you might have an anxiety disorder that needs professional attention. This screening measure is not designed to make a diagnosis of an anxiety disorder or take the place of a professional diagnosis or consultation. All of your responses are confidential.
Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behaviour. Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems.
Though it’s called adult ADHD, symptoms start in early childhood and continue into adulthood. In some cases, ADHD is not recognised or diagnosed until the person is an adult. Adult ADHD symptoms may not be as clear as ADHD symptoms in children. In adults, hyperactivity may decrease, but struggles with impulsiveness, restlessness and difficulty paying attention may continue.
This is only a screening test. A diagnosis can only be made by a mental health professional or psychiatrist.
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a relatively common condition where the walls of the throat relax and narrow during sleep, interrupting normal breathing.
This may lead to regularly interrupted sleep, which can have a big impact on quality of life and increases the risk of developing certain conditions.
If OSA is left untreated, it can have a significant impact on your quality of life, causing problems such as poor performance at work and school, and placing a strain on your relationships with others.
- Poorly controlled OSA may also increase your risk of:
- developing high blood pressure (hypertension) having a stroke or heart attack
- developing an irregular heartbeat – such as atrial fibrillation
- developing type 2 diabetes – although it’s unclear if this is the result of an underlying cause, such as obesity
Research has shown someone who has been deprived of sleep because of OSA may be up to 12 times more likely to be involved in a car accident.
Osteoporosis is a common condition. Bone is living tissue that is in a constant state of regeneration. The body removes old bone (called bone resorption) and replaces it with new bone (bone formation). By their mid-30s, most people begin to slowly lose more bone than can be replaced. As a result, bones become thinner and weaker in structure. Osteoporosis is silent because there are no symptoms (what you feel). When you have this condition, a fracture can occur even after a minor injury, such as a fall. The most common fractures occur at the spine, wrist and hip. Spine and hip fractures, in particular, may lead to chronic (long-term) pain and disability. The main goal of treating osteoporosis is to prevent such fractures in the first place.
Screening programmes aim to find the early signs of cancer in people who don’t have any symptoms yet. By finding cancer early, it could be treated in time to get rid of it. In the UK there are screening programmes for breast, cervical and bowel cancer.
There is currently no screening programme for prostate cancer in the UK. One reason for this is that the PSA test isn’t good enough at finding prostate cancer to be used as part of a screening programme. However, cancer screening tests — including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to look for signs of prostate cancer — can be a good idea. Prostate cancer screening can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective.
But it isn’t perfect. Some men may find that the downsides of prostate cancer screening outweigh the potential benefits.
Ultimately, whether to have prostate cancer screening is something you should decide after discussing it with your doctor, considering your risk factors and weighing your personal preferences.
Testicular cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of one or both testicles and is the most common cancer in men aged 15 to 34 years. Testicular cancer can usually be cured. There is no standard or routine screening test used for early detection of testicular cancer. Most often, testicular cancer is first found by men themselves, either by chance or during self-exam. Sometimes the cancer is found by a doctor during a routine physical exam.
Every 15 minutes, someone in England and Wales is diagnosed with bowel cancer making it the third most common cancer in the UK. But, it’s highly treatable when detected in the early stages which is why it’s so important that people are diagnosed as soon as possible. According to Cancer Research UK, 95% of men and almost 100% of women are likely to survive bowel cancer if it is caught in the early stages. The faecal immunochemical test (FIT) is a screening test for colon cancer. It tests for hidden blood in the stool, which can be an early sign of cancer. FIT only detects human blood from the lower intestines. Check my health can arrange for a FIT test for bowel cancer and onward referral for colonoscopy where indicated
