Many factors play a role in determining a women's risk of developing breast cancer. Risk assessment tools are used to determine risk, and, ultimately to develop personalized screening programs. Are you at high risk?
Risk factors for the development of breast cancer include age, parity (full term pregnancies), family history, and, a variety of ‘high risk lesions’ found at biopsy. Some patients, whose risks are significant can/should be followed under a high risk protocol, overseen by a High Risk Program. Comprehensive Breast Care has such a program. This program allows patients risk to undergo assessment and the appropriate screening modalities (mammogram, MRI, ultrasound, screening breast ultrasound (ABUS), genetic conseling & testing) are coordinated.
