In brief: It depends

A 40 year-old man may need blood pressure and cholesterol checks, be screened for depression, counseled on lifestyle measures (avoiding smoking or alcohol problems, eating well, exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, ) and get some vaccines.
A woman may also need paps, folic acid, and a rubella check. Everyone has individual needs. A good resource is the my heath checklist iphone app.
