High Risk Breast Cancer Program

Early detection of breast cancer saves lives. Premier Health’s High Risk Breast Cancer program is a comprehensive program for women at increased risk to develop breast cancer. High Risk Breast Cancer Centers are located at Miami Valley Hospital North and Miami Valley Hospital South.

Are you at increased risk for breast cancer? If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you may have an elevated risk.

  • Have you ever been diagnosed with breast cancer or ovarian cancer?
  • Do you have a family member who has had breast or ovarian cancer?
  • Have any men in your family ever had breast cancer?
  • Have you or a relative ever tested positive for a change (mutation) in a cancer susceptibility gene?
  • Have you ever had an abnormal breast biopsy with pre-cancerous changes (lobular carcinoma in situ or atypical ductal hyperplasia)?
  • Have you received radiation therapy to the upper body?

You may be interested in the High Risk Breast Cancer program if you answered “yes” to any of these questions.

Multidisciplinary Approach

The High Risk Breast Cancer Centers provide a multidisciplinary approach to screening and testing or women who may be more likely to develop breast cancer. Patients have access to the centers’ full-time oncology nurse navigators who support you by offering a more complete picture of what is happening and, if treatment is needed, guiding you through the treatment process.

The centers offer cancer-focused genetic counseling and genetic testing for inherited cancer risks. The centers also provide ongoing care and surveillance for women participating in the program.

Services Offered

We can provide you and your family members with:

  • A review of personal health history and risk factors
  • A detailed family cancer history review spanning four generations
  • A physician consultation to review family and medical histories, previous medical imaging and, if applicable, a clinical breast exam

  • Genetic counseling by a licensed certified genetic counselor regarding genetic testing, which may detect inherited risk factors in genes linked to hereditary breast cancer
  • Health education on topics such as breast screenings, self-breast exams and lifestyle modifications
  • Long-term follow-up care by following patients for their ongoing breast health needs every six months to a year as determined by their individual needs
