A Woman's Checklist
Review the list below for the cancer-related exams and tests you'll need, depending on your age and medical history. For additional information or to set an appointment, call 985-873-7244.
Physical exams: A cancer-related checkup should include an examination of your entire body for early signs of skin cancer, as well as specific exams for cancers of the thyroid, mouth, ovaries and lymph nodes.
Breast cancer: Women 40 or older should have a mammogram and clinical breast exam every year. Women ages 20-39 need a clinical breast exam about every three years. Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.
Women at increased risk (e.g., family history, genetic tendency, past breast cancer) should talk with their doctors about the benefits and limitations of starting mammography screening earlier, having additional tests (e.g., breast ultrasound or MRI) or having more frequent exams.
Cervical cancer: Cervical cancer screening should begin at 21 years of age. It should be done every three years using liquid-based Pap tests from age 21 to 29.
At or after age 30, women who are screened with a liquid-based Pap test and HVP (human papilloma virus) may be screened every 5 years. A doctor may suggest getting the test more often if a woman has certain risk factors such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or a weakened immune system.
Women between the ages of 65 to 70 and older who have had 3 or more consecutive normal Pap tests or 2 normal Pap smear with a negative HPV and no abnormal Pap tests in the past 10 years may choose to stop cervical cancer screening.
Screening aftera  total hysterectomy (with a removal of the cervix) is not necessary unless the surgery was done as a treatment for cervical cancer or precancer. Women who have had a hysterectomy without removal of the cervix should continue to follow the guidelines above.
Uterine/Endometrial cancer: Beginning at 35, women who have hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (or are at high risk for it) should ask about an annual endometrial biopsy.
Ovarian cancer: Regular pelvic and rectal exams are important for detecting ovarian cancer as early as possible.
Colon cancer: All women 50 or older need to follow one of these five testing schedules:
  • Yearly stool blood test
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy every five years
  • Yearly stool blood test and flexible sigmoidoscopy every five years (preferred over either option alone)
  • Double-contrast barium enema every five years
  • Colonoscopy every 10 years
Please feel free to call us (985-873-7244) with any questions regarding these women's health exams or to set up an appointment for a women's health exam.
