If you are at high risk for breast cancer, we can help. Our goal is to reduce your chance of developing cancer. We also want to provide screening that will find breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages if it occurs.
The High Risk Program is designed for people who are concerned that they are at high risk for developing breast cancer. Our program offers a complete assessment of your breast cancer risk, individual interventions and screenings, and a plan for how to reduce risks.
A team comprised of a surgeon, genetic counselor, registered nurse and other breast specialists as needed will work with you to create this plan. We will coordinate breast cancer screenings and discuss options to reduce your risk. For some patients, we’ll talk about genetic testing as an option.
If we determine genetic testing will be helpful, we’ll arrange for a formal genetic consult. We’ll make sure testing is done on the right family member and the results are reliably interpreted for you and your family.
