In brief: Depends..

In general if annual exam - depends on age and medical history.
Typical test has Lipid panel, CBC( complete blood count) Live and kidney function , Fasting glucose, urinalysis. Optional could be Thyroid( TSH) , STD screen, in obese also HbA1c ( diabetes), man over 50 PSA( prostate).See your doctor to discuss. It is very good idea to have annual exam even if you feel good. Good health!
