In brief: Here's a list

The following tests are the most supported in medical research at this age: pap smears, mammograms, colon cancer screening with colonoscopy or testing stool for hidden blood, BP checks, and checks for depression and alcohol problems.
Other tests are not proven. There are also vaccines and behavior recommendations at these ages. A good resource is the iphone app called my health checklist 2012.
