Women in the United States have a one in eight chance of developing breast cancer at some point in their lives. You may develop breast cancer for a wide range of reasons and underlying factors, so there’s no sure means of preventing cancer. However, an understanding of your risk of breast cancer can help with risk mitigation and early detection, which significantly improves your prognosis.
At New England Breast and Wellness, we provide high-risk counseling to women with a high risk of developing breast cancer, either due to genetic factors, lifestyle factors, or the presence of inherited gene mutations. We curate a personalized risk mitigation program based on your unique needs and preferences, which may include regular breast cancer screening, genetic testing, and other risk reduction options.
