Check Your Health and Get a Game Plan

Cancer.org has put together The Great American Health Check, a great online resource to figure out what your individual health risks are, to help get into better shape or to help quit smoking. Its free and kicks out a personalized list of concerns to print out and bring to your doctor.

My personal health areas to check on: Lymph nodes, oral cavity, skin, testes and thyroid.

I got thumbs up for my physical activity and diet and my BMI (body mass index) is just below the threshold to start worrying but that's most likely because I carry a fair bit more muscle than most men my height.
[Update: The interface is incredibly crappy to try and use. I had to click the box about a hundred times before it actually started the health check. Sorry about that. I've written them twice to let them know how crappy and difficult their interface is.]
