Not as often as I should considering a blood relative had breast cancer before age 25. But I do get a full physical and the other necessary tests once a year. I also have my dentist to soft tissue exams on my head and neck every time I see him, because my dad had a tumor in his neck. That, and the dentist told me he's caught like 7 cases of cancer since he started doing them as part of a teeth cleaning.

the dentist only examines the tissue in your mouth, right?

Nope, head and neck (lymph system) as well. Under the chin, behind the ears, along the neck, up on the head, etc. I've had two bacterial infections resulting in lumps and abscesses on my head and neck, so I like to monitor it closely. My dad's tumor was under his ear, kind of where your jaw ends. He said it's recommended for people over age 21 or something and he's found several cases of cancer and tumors.

i guess he's looking for swollen lymph nodes which might be caused by a cancer or (more likely) an infection.

do you know what kind of bacteria caused your infection?

Nope, I don't. I had to take heavy antibiotic regimens both times. The more recent time, I was also getting periorbital cellulitis in my eyes, so probably whatever bacteria causes that (I can't remember). The abscess from my the second occurrence (the week before Christmas) is now almost completely healed.

A symptom of Hodgkins disease (lymph cancer) is lumps on the head/neck. It's a serious cancer. That's mainly what he is checking for.

I can't remember the exact statistics, but it actually may be the cancer with the highest survival rate of all.

I have a yearly physical and I am not as diligent as I should be (on a monthly basis) otherwise.

Every day.

What constitutes an "exam" BTW?

Also, if I had breasts I'd probably be examining them all the time and would not be very productive.
