BRCA1, familial breast-ovarian cancer susceptibility 1
Should men with a BRCA1 mutation have prostate cancer screening?
Prostate cancer screening is recommended for men who carry a BRCA1 mutation. Prostate cancer screening may be recommended to begin around age 40 for men with a BRCA1 gene mutation, which is a younger age than the screening recommendation for men in the general population. Men with a BRCA1 gene mutation should talk with their doctor about current screening guidelines.
