That thread on the real/apparent age made me remember that I've been meaning to go for a physical and other tests to see if I will live beyond 30. It's been oh... 15 years at least since my last one so I don't have a clue what they do there now. So I am wondering, when you go see a doctor for a physical these days, what is it that they do they exactly? Is it intrusive like 'strip naked while I slip on this rubber glove' or is it just the breath in, breath out, stick out your tongue, do you feel anything wrong inside type check up? Call me crazy but I don't really care to have a doctor check out my genitalia, I am more interested in non visible potential problems like getting my cholesterol checked and having bloodwork done to check for things like diabetes, cancer or other health problems. My brother is only 1.5 years older and has cancer of the Thyroid as well as khrones (sic) while some cousins have had heart attacks in their low 30s. Those kinds of things are what worry me, especially considering there is huge family history of heart problems on my father's side and cancer on my mother's side. So... what can I expect?
