Blood Screening Once A Year

Every year our company will have the blood screening promotion package for just RM45. It includes 18KS health screen. You can add on some other test too if you like.

Pathlab 18KS Health Screen comprises tests on Haematology, Renal function, Diabetes screening, Thyroid profile, Liver function, Lipid profile, Tumour marker, Infectious diseases, Serology, Urinalysis. I took the 18KS test plus the breast and ovary cancer screening. The total cost is just RM45 + RM20 + RM20 = RM85.

The result was out last week. I feel relieved when I know everything is fine. Every adult should go for blood screening once a year. The reading is important for yearly monitoring. Any abnormalities or disease found at the early stage will alert you for early treatment or care.

wow..that's a good price. All those test and only cost RM85.

I have a friend of a friend's daughter who just had 1 of her ovary removed due to infection. If only her parents took her to proper check-up earlier,this could have been prevented..


It's true - the test is important for early diagnosis
