A new study from Europe has found that people who regularly had check-ups weren't actually any healthier than people who didn't.
The long-term study involved 182,880 people, so with that significant sample size, the results are pretty reliable.
The study looked mainly at deaths from heart disease or cancer, the two most commonly assessed ailments during check-ups.
After looking at the data, the researchers were unable to find any differences in hospital admissions, disability, specialist referrals, more doctors visits or time taken off work.
