Point to Consider

If you have symptoms, please visit the outpatient department instead of requesting a comprehensive health examination. The comprehensive health examination is intended for the effective detection of disease in asymptomatic people. If you have symptoms, the comprehensive health examination may be insufficient or not relevant. Furthermore, the condition may progress to an untreatable level before the result of the comprehensive health examination becomes available.
