WOMEN
Mammography
Women aged 40 to 75 should have
a mammogram every 1 to 2 years,
depending on their risk factors.
Experts do not agree on the benefits of
mammography for women over 75; these
women should discuss screening with their
health provider.
Blood Pressure Screening
Women should have their blood pressure
tested every 2 years; yearly screening
should be undertaken if blood pressure
exceeds 140/90. Women with diabetes,
heart disease, kidney problems or certain
other conditions should be checked more
often.
Cholesterol Screening
This testing should begin between the
ages of 40 and 45. Women with normal
cholesterol should be retested every 5
years. Women with changes in weight
gain and diet or who have diabetes, heart
disease, kidney problems or certain other
conditions, should be monitored more
closely.
Diabetes Screening
After the age of 45, women should be
screened every 3 years. Women who are
overweight or have blood pressure above
140/80 should be tested earlier and/or
more frequently.
Osteoporosis Screening
A perimenopausal bone mineral density
test (DEXA scan) of hip and lumbar spine
should be undertaken by women over 50
with fractures or a risk of fractures. All
women should have a bone density test
done at least once at age 65 or older.
Colorectal Cancer Screening
Women under 50 should be screened if
they have a family history of colon cancer
or polyps, or other risk factors. Women
between 50 and 75 should be screened
regularly with one of the following tests:
n	Fecal occult blood (stool-based) test 	
	 every year
n	Fecal immunochemical test (FIT)
	 every year
n	Stool DNA test every 3 years
n	Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years
n	Double contrast barium enema
	 every 5 years
n	CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy) 	
	 every 5 years
n	Colonoscopy every 10 years
Cervical Cancer Screening
Women in their 20s should have a Pap
smear every 3 years. Between the ages
of 40 to 65, women should have a Pap
and human papillomavirus (HPV) test
every 5 years, or a Pap test alone every
3 years. Women who have had a total
hysterectomy no longer need Pap smears.
After age 65, most women can stop having
Pap smears after 3 negative tests within
the last 10 years.
MEN
Blood Pressure Screening
Men should undergo this screening
every 2 years; annual screening should
be done if blood pressure exceeds
140/90. Men with diabetes, heart
disease, kidney problems or other
conditions should have their blood
pressure checked more often.
Cholesterol Screening
At the age of 40, men with normal
cholesterol levels should be tested every
5 years. Cholesterol should be tested
more often in men with high cholesterol,
diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems
or other conditions.
Diabetes Screening
Beginning at the age of 45, men should
be screened every 3 years. Men who are
overweight or have blood pressure above
140/80 should be tested earlier and/or
more frequently.
Osteoporosis Screening
Men between 50 and 70 with risk factors
for osteoporosis should discuss screening
with their physician.
Colorectal Cancer Screening
Men under 50 with a family history of
colon cancer, polyps or other risk factors
should be screened. All men between 50
and 75 should be screened regularly with
one of the following tests:
n	Fecal occult blood (stool-based) test 	
	 every year
n	Fecal immunochemical test (FIT)
	 every year
n	Stool DNA test every 3 years
n	Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years
n	Double contrast barium enema
	 every 5 years
n	CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy) 	
	 every 5 years
n	Colonoscopy every 10 years
Prostate Cancer Screening
At age 50, men should discuss screening
with their doctor. African American men
and men with a family history of prostate
cancer should begin discussions at age
45. Prostate exams are no longer routinely
performed on men without symptoms.
However, for those who choose to be
tested, the PSA blood test is done every
year. Beginning at age 40, a yearly digital
rectal exam is recommended.
