Breast Clinic

The High Risk Breast Clinic provides specialized care for individuals with an increased risk of breast cancer due to family history or specific breast cancer risk factors.

Risk Factors for Breast Cancer

  • Inherited gene mutations associated with increased cancer risks such as BRCA1 and BRCA2
  • Family history of breast, ovarian or pancreatic cancer or a family member diagnosed before age 50
  • Chest radiation treatment before age 30
  • Dense breast tissue

Genetic Testing

Our team partners with genetic counselors to understand personal and family medical histories. Then we run a simple genetic test that shows us any mutations that may increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

Talk to a genetic counselor by calling 913-632-9162.
