High Risk Breast Cancer Program
What factors increase your risk for breast cancer?
Risk factors that include hormone supplements, the timing of the birth of your first child, and family history can increase your risk for breast cancer, according to Sirinya Prasertvit, M.D., a breast surgeon at CHI St. Vincent.
“There are two parts to the high risk breast cancer program,” says Dr. Prasertvit. “One is the imaging – once a year mammogram and once a year MRI alternating every six months – coordinated with a clinical exam.”
