At TriVita Clinic of Integrative Medicine, Dr. Chander & his expert team of medical professionals suggest making sure you take the time each year to receive a well woman exam, as it is an important step in taking control of your health. Your annual well woman exam will consist of a breast exam and a pelvic exam, and may also include a pap smear. Well woman exams can help to identify problems before they become more serious. Early detection for issues like cervical dysplasia and breast cancer can have an incredible impact on the effectiveness of available treatment. That is why it is so important to find a doctor with whom you can build a trusting and comfortable relationship.
The breast exam portion of your well woman exam will involve a few different steps. The first part of the exam consists of a visual examination. Your doctor will check your breasts for any visual abnormalities such as shrinkage or bulging. They will examine the color and symmetry of your breasts according to your age, body mass, and other identifiers. They will also closely examine the nipple and areola for any flattening or other abnormalities.
The next step of your breast exam includes palpation of each breast and physical examination of the breast and underarm area for any lumps. Your doctor may also take this time to show you how to perform a self-breast exam at home. Checking your breasts regularly can help to ensure that your doctor can be made aware of any irregularities as soon as possible, even if they appear between visits. Depending on your age or other risk factors, and whether your doctor finds any problems, you may also be referred to a specialist to have a mammogram performed.
In addition to the breast exam, your well woman exam will include a complete pelvic exam. This exam will include inspection of the exterior genitalia, a bimanual examination, and a speculum examination. The bimanual and speculum examination will inspect the interior of your vagina, as well as your cervix and uterus. The speculum examination may include a pap test, depending on your age. This involves taking a sample of cells from your cervix and uterine fornix to check for any potential abnormalities. This screening can help identify human papilloma virus (HPV) and cervical cancer, and is an important step in ensuring you receive the best treatment as soon as possible, if you need it.
Well woman exams are incredibly personal, and it is important that you have a doctor you feel completely comfortable with. At our primary care clinic, we strive to create an environment where you can feel calm and cared for. We want you to be a partner in your own healthcare, and to feel comfortable voicing any issues or concerns you may have. If you would like to schedule a well woman exam, please call us today.
