Screening recommendations for men
Breast cancer is rare, but not impossible, for men. The only men for whom regular screening is recommended are those with: 1. BRCA2 or BRCA1 gene mutation (or a first-degree relative with a mutation) 2. Strong family history of breast cancer, such as mother and/or sister diagnosed at age 40 or younger For those men, it is recommended to: 1. Have a clinical breast exam every six to 12 months, starting at age 35 2. Consider having a mammogram at age 40 (depending on the findings from this first mammogram and the amount of breast tissue, yearly mammograms may be recommended)
