    GO IN

    I know the meaning of the sentence but why GO IN has used here..

    We’ll go in for all the required tests and start treatment.

    Go in is just used here as a phrasal verb and it means they'll run all the required tests.


    go in Longman - go in

    1. to do an examination or take part in a competition:
    I go in for all the competitions.


    2. to do or use something often because you enjoy it or like it:
    I never really went in for sports.

    3. to choose something as your job:
    I suppose I could go in for advertising.

    I'm afraid I disagree with our friend nyota. When we go in for medical tests, we are going into the doctor's office or lab or hospital.

    I actually don't know what Longman means by "do an examination", but it is not a medical examination (which is not a medical test, anyway).

    Ah yes, I've taken it as 'going in for a medical examination', obviously too hastily Thanks Coolfootluke.
