Thinking about cancer or dealing with cancer risk can be scary or overwhelming, but we believe that receiving information and resources is comforting, empowering, and lifesaving.
Although some organizations recommend against routine prostate cancer screening in the general population, screening may be more beneficial for men with BRCA mutations because of their prostate cancer risk.
NCCN guidelines recommend men with BRCA mutations begin prostate cancer screening at age 40. Experts recommend this screening includes a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and baseline digital rectal exam.
Current guidelines for breast cancer screening in men with BRCA mutations are included on our downloadable brochure on BRCA for Men.
