There are a number of procedures that you can do or have done by your doctor that help early detection of possible reproductive health problems.
- annual pelvic exam (including a Pap smear)
- mammograms (if you are over 40 years old)
- monthly vulvar self-exam
- Testicular Self Exam (TSE)
- Breast Self Exam (BSE)
Although breast cancer is rare in men, it is a good idea to have your health provider examine the breast and nipple area on a regular basis as well.
If you find anything different or unusual such as bumps or lumps, you should have your health professional check it out. To find an Opt clinic near you, click here.
