Knowing when to see a doctor is not always an easy decision. There are the obvious age-appropriate checkups for cancer screening and routine tests for things like cholesterol that we all should schedule for good health but then there are symptoms beyond vague aches and pains that should not be ignored.
Things such as pain in the chest area, abnormal bleeding, new lumps anywhere on the body, unintended changes to bowel habits and weight, or changes to a mole/freckle.
Other reasons to see a doctor are for a high, persistent fever, a cold or cough that lingers, shortness of breath, ongoing fatigue, pelvic pain, changes to your mood, or unexpected symptoms on starting a new medication.
