Hi. I'm a 22 year old male and I have never had a full physical exam and was wondering is it a good idea to get a physical exam done at my age? Also, where do I go to get a physical exam (at family doctor, walk in clinic)? Does a nurse or a doctor perform a physical exam?




  1. Yes,get a physical.Most any Family Doctor will do them.If you have insurance or can pay for it yourself(about $100-$200) have your blood work done also.Some Doctors include that in the physical,ask when you make an apointment.You should also have your teeth cleaned every 6 months.If you have not done that for a while,you should consider a dental exam too.You are never too young or too old to take care of your body.

  2. your gonna die!  sick dude im playing nothing is going to go wrong its all kool it could uncover hidden cancers thats what you should be worried abbout put me as best answer if i helpeed

    A full-body examination is a quick and useful tool to screen patients and uncover benign and cancerous lesions that would otherwise remain undetected, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society

  3. Of course it's ok for you to get an exam.. It's never too late to be concerned about your health.

    Do you have insurance? If you have insurance then you just look at the reference book and pick any doctor you want. You just call and make an appointment and you set everything up when you get there.

    The nurse usually takes care of you first  by weighing you, taking your temperature, etc.. and the doctor performs the actual exam. It's a pretty quick process.

  4. Don't do it, they're going to rub your balls and poke their finger around them to check for hernias!

  5. It depends what it is for.  If it's sports related then you are better to see a sports doctor.
