What Happens During a Physical?

Physicals are a chance for your primary care physician to give your body its regular check-up, checking for any abnormalities or areas of concern and answering any questions you may have.

  • At most physicals, doctors will screen your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, lungs and head, as well as check your general appearance.
  • Males, specifically, should expect a testicular exam, a hernia exam, a penis exam and a prostate exam. Women should expect a breast and pelvic exam to screen for any abnormalities.
  • While exercising, maintaining a healthy weight and refraining from smoking are great ways to stay in good health, regular check-ups are a great way to identify any issues before they become more serious. Adults should get physicals every year.
