In addition to deciding on the numerical age for “old,” the survey's 2,000 respondents also qualified what that meant. Participants described "old" as having a heightened concern about overall health (39 percent), as well as a variety of more aesthetic concerns such as wrinkles (36 percent), weight gain (36 percent), gray hair (35 percent), hair loss (34 percent) and age spots (34 percent).

“While the survey shows many people do know when they should be tested, there are still a large number of individuals who aren’t being tested as often as they should be,” said Dr. Robert Mordkin, Chief Medical Officer of LetsGetChecked, an at-home health testing company.

Still, nearly 37 percent admitted to not being tested as often for major health concerns, with 52 percent reporting that it was because they were “too busy to think about preventative health tests.”
