Explanation:
you may have several forms. If you address someone whom you pay respect to:
Comment allez-vous? Est-ce que vous allez bien? Comment vous sentez-vous? (the first being the most common)

if you address someone close to you (friends, relatives[coloquial]):
comment vas-tu?
ça va?

Between youngsters and very close friends (street spoken), you may have:
Alors, ça boum?
ça va?
ça marche?
ça tourne?
Qu'est-ce que tu racontes?
