For most women, the chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime is 1 in 8, or 12%, but for some women the risk is much higher. On Friday, October 23rd, Southern Cancer Center’s Dr. Michael Meshad spoke with WKRG New 5 in their monthly medical segment called “The Doctor Is In” about what it means to be “High Risk” for developing breast cancer and what you can do about it.
Southern Cancer Center offers High Risk Breast Cancer services on-site at our clinics, through our specialized Genetic Risk Evaluation and Testing program, overseen by our oncology providers. Our multidisciplinary team guides women identified as high risk by providing education on early detection and risk-reducing practices, as well as offers genetic testing and counseling, disease diagnosis and cancer treatment.
