While one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, what stage they are diagnosed at impacts survival rates. The earlier we can identify breast cancer the better the rate of survival.
Our clinic is focused on identifying women who are at high risk of developing breast cancer due to a variety of factors and providing compassionate care, treatment options and resources.
As every woman’s level of risk is different, our experienced staff of dedicated imagers, specialized physicians, certified nurse navigators and nurse practitioners tailor care for your specific needs. Our staff can help you identify your risk level, where appropriate access genetic testing, provide preventative care, support care coordination and offer a diverse array of treatment options if needed.
The strongest risk factor for breast cancer is your age. Your breast density, family history, ethnicity, weight, and a myriad of lifestyle and life experiences also impact your risk of developing breast cancer. We use a statistical model of risk assessment to assess what the risk is to women with similar risk factors. Our nurse navigators can provide risk assessment and share the results with your physician. Contact 520-324-2778 for more information about the High-Risk Breast Center.
