Your Breasts (Men)

Men, Age To Start
Your Breast Self-checks  


 Men At Higher Risk Should Begin Earlier.

Men at any age may develop breast cancer, however it is usually detected in men between 60-70 years old. 


Men At Higher Risk

Beginning at age 35, make an appointment with your health professional for a clinical breast exam every 6 to 12 months.


Men At Normal Risk

Usually at age 40, talk to your health professional about the appropriate age to start your mammograms. Results of your first mammogram will help determine the timing of future mammograms.

Beginning at age 40, do a monthly breast self-check at the same time you do your testicular self-check and skin self-check.
