Health Screening Report Out

This is an outdated post.

The physician, Dr Kwan called and informed me that the Health Screening Report was ready on the 4th day after the examination. We went back to Tung Shin Hospital the next day to collect our report.

My result
Mild Hypertension (needs monitoring)
Mild raised cholesterol level
Other blood and urine tests unremarkable
Ultrasound Abdomen showed uterine fibroids
Normal Chest X-ray, Ultrasound Breasts and ECG
Pap Smear normal

I have expected my hypertension to return as I had Gestational hypertension during my pregnancy 7 years ago but never did it cross my mind that it had to be this soon! Yes, I am almost always stressed, whether it be about anything and everything!
My only concern would have to be several fibroids noted within my uterus (uterine fibroids). The largest is noted in the posterior wall measuring 5.8 x 5.5 x 5.8cm. The largest in the anterior wall measures 1.o x 1.1 x 0.9cm. Dr Kwan's interpretation: Nothing to be concerned about. Most women have them and very rarely the fibroids will turn maglinant (cancerous). Advised to have ultrasound scan every year to monitor any growth.
The left ovary measures 3.6 x 2.4cm with a dominant follicle seen within, measuring 0.6cm in diameter. The right ovary is not visualised. No Free fluid noted in the P.O.D.

Dad's Result

Hypertension - Advised long term medication
Mild raised LDL Cholesterol
Mild raised PSA - needs monitoring

Other blood and urine tests unremarkable
Ultrasound Abdomen showed liver cysts
Normal Chest X-ray, Lung Function Test, ECG and Stress Test
Dad is now on amlodipine 5mg (anti-hypertensive drug) once daily. He stopped taking it two years ago since the GP told him his BP level was normal then. Well, it could be the herbs that he took that had worked wonders. He has stopped taking the herbs since coming to KL to be with mom. Well, no one could ever tell if this was indeed the reason.
His PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test showed a slightly elevated result which needs monitoring and another test to be done in 3 months' time as advised by Dr Kwan.
Several simple cysts were noted in dad's liver though the size was too small to cause concern as commented by Dr Kwan.
