Many factors contribute to a woman’s personal risk of developing breast cancer. Some women actually overestimate their risk of developing breast cancer. Others don’t recognize personal and family history factors that can influence their risk.
To help women determine if they might be at an increased risk, the Breast Center at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center offers a free high-risk screening tool in the form of a questionnaire. When you return the completed questionnaire, doctors will review your answers, and contact you with results and recommendations.
What you learn from the questionnaire can help you decide which steps to take next to best manage your health. Based on your potential risk, further genetic counseling and testing may be recommended.
