Regular medical check-ups help doctors to pick up signs of diseases that the patients may not even know to exist. It also helps them to catch any potentially severe life-threatening condition in its early stage so that treatment can be initiated as early as possible. Outcomes of treatment at an advanced stage are not so favorable.

Early detection and quick treatment give favourable outcomes
