You should have regular checkups with your PCP. These should include a check for cancer. The cancer-related checkup should include health education and may include screenings for cancers of the thyroid gland, oral cavity, skin, lymph nodes, testes, and ovaries.
Check to see if you are due for a cancer screening. You may need to follow a different schedule if you have an increased risk for cancer. This would include a personal or family history of cancer or certain health conditions. Call your PCP to find out if a cancer screening is right for you.
