Are you at high risk?

Making the best decisions for your breast health 

Willis, Kimberly

Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tools

In 80 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer, there is no family history of the disease. Beverly Hospital's Breast Health Center provides comprehensive care with a focus on identifying those women in the community who may be at particularly high risk for developing breast cancer by offering a free risk assessment at the time of annual screening mammography.

What if you are at high risk?

Women who are identified as high risk are encouraged to meet with a breast health specialist who can counsel them on risk reduction measures, offer genetic testing if appropriate, and create a personalized care plan, which includes a screening program with state-of-the-art technologies - mammography, ultrasound and MRI - all available.

Care and Support Tailored to Your Needs

Patients are supported by the Breast Health Center's Certified Breast Patient Navigators who are also nurse practitioners. Thei role is multifaceted, seeing women who may be at high risk, following up with women who have a personal history of breast cancer, helping women who may need a breast biopsy, and helping women in need of a follow up care plan after diagnosis of both benign or malignant breast disease. They works in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team composed of breast surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, oncology nurses, pathologists, and radiologists.
