Cancer Screening Tests That Men Should Get - American Medical Centers Киев

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.
