According to the American Cancer Society, the chance of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer at some time during her lifetime is 13%. This means, on average, an individual woman has a 1-in-8 chance of developing breast cancer over an 80-year lifespan. The information from a Breast Cancer Risk Assessment will help inform you and your provider to determine whether supplemental screening, risk reduction strategies, genetic counseling, and/or a formal cancer risk assessment may be appropriate.

Pre-Treatment Planning Conferences

After biopsy, every high risk and breast cancer case is reviewed by a multidisciplinary panel of doctors and healthcare professionals to help ensure quality of care, timeliness, and that all options, tests, and resources have been evaluated.

You or your doctor may request for your case to be reviewed by a multidisciplinary board of doctors and healthcare professionals with expertise in cancer. The board will recommend treatment options that are based on national guidelines, clinical trials which are specialized research studies, and other helpful services.
