Cancer screening guidelines for adults

Your healthcare provider will be able to recommend what cancer screenings are appropriate for you, but the general cancer screening guidelines for adults from the American Cancer Society are as follows:

For ovarian, prostate, and skin cancer, screenings haven't yet been shown to reduce deaths, and your healthcare provider might recommend against screenings if you don't have symptoms or a family history indicating that you might be at risk. For some forms of cancer, there are self-examinations you can perform at home with more regularity.

If you have any questions about cancer or cancer screenings, don't hesitate to ask your healthcare provider.
