Approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Age, family history, and environmental factors can all contribute to an increased risk of developing the disease. Early detection and treatment are without a doubt the best hope for survival. CarePoint Health offers a high-risk management program designed to treat women who have an increased risk of cancer. In addition to employing statistical models to calculate a woman’s actual lifetime risk of breast cancer, risk management services include:
- Clinical evaluations and tools to help identify and treat high-risk patients
- Regular proactive screenings such as MRIs and mammography
- Genetic counseling if family history has breast or ovarian cancers
- Personalized recommendations for follow-up
At CarePoint Health Center for Breast Health, reducing your risk is a priority and we stand ready to ensure that you are well on your way to staying healthy and strong.
