Oncologist 's  Response
Hi Ryan, here in India, the recommendation for breast cancer screening is like monthly self breast examination after 20 years of age and annual examination by a doctor after 20 years of age. Mammogram is recommended annually after 45 Years of age. Currently we don't recommend screening for ovarian cancer. For prostate cancer annual DRE and serum PSA measurement after age 50. Hope this has answered your question. Thank you.
