Know Your Breast Health Risk
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. There are many factors that could increase your risk for developing breast cancer. Undergoing a breast cancer risk assessment will help you learn if you have risk factors that put you at increased risk for developing breast cancer.
Knowing your breast cancer risk is essential in developing an appropriate breast cancer screening plan.
You may benefit from breast cancer risk assessment if you have the following:
- African American or Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry
- Family history of breast or ovarian cancer on mom or dad’s side of the family
- Family history of breast cancer associated with gene mutation
- Previous breast biopsy demonstrating atypical cells or lobular carcinoma in-situ (LCIS)
You are encouraged to speak with your primary care provider regarding whether you may benefit from a breast cancer risk assessment.
