Cancer Screening Tests That Men Should Get

Colorectal Cancer
Flexible sigmoidoscopy
High-sensitivity fecal occult blood tests (FOBT)

Who should get tested. You should get one of these if you’re a man between 50 and 75 years old. You might need to start even earlier if you’re at high risk for colorectal cancer. If you’re between 75 and 86, ask your doctor about your risks and whether you still need to get one of the exams.

Prostate Cancer
PSA (prostate specific antigen)
Digital rectal exam (DRE)

Who should get tested. Men who are at average risk for prostate cancer may want to get one, and possibly a DRE, starting at age 50. If you’re at high risk you may need to start testing earlier.

Lung Cancer

It’s deadliest cancer in men. Because one main cause is smoking, you should get a screening test if you’ve got a long-time tobacco habit.

Doctors check for lung cancer with an LDCT (low-dose computed tomography) scan. This test uses X-rays to make pictures of your lungs.

Who should get tested. Get this if all of these are true for you:

  • you’re 55 to 80 years old;
  • you smoke now, or you quit within the past 15 years;
  • you have a smoking history of at least 30 pack years — meaning you smoked one pack a day for 30 years or an amount equal to it, such as two packs a day for 15 years.

Skin Cancer

During a checkup, your doctor can look for any moles or other growths on your skin that might be cancer. You can also do a self-exam. You can examine your skin on your own once a month.

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Kyiv.
*During busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours.
