Cancer Risk Assessment

EWBC provides risk assessment for all our patients. Determining an individual’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is imperative in implementing an appropriate management plan.

Our patients complete a health history questionnaire which allows newest developed software to calculate both the patient’s lifetime risk of breast cancer as well as their individual likelihood of a genetic mutation. An average woman’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is 12%.  Any patient with a calculated lifetime risk of developing breast cancer above 20% on a risk assessment model (Tyrer-Cuzick, Gail, etc), is eligible for high risk Screening Breast MRI.  Any patient with an appropriate family or personal history is eligible for Genetic Counseling.  

Referring physicians receive a report which includes all appropriate risk scores.
