High Risk Breast Cancer Program

Are you at high risk for breast cancer questionnaire worksheet

Take our questionnaire to determine if you are at a higher risk for breast cancer.

Roswell Park’s High Risk Breast Cancer Program is the region's longest-running breast cancer risk assessment and prevention program. Specifically for women who face a higher risk for breast cancer, our program offers the most advanced screening, surveillance, diagnostic and preventive methods to help you take charge of your health.

You may face a higher risk for breast cancer due to:

  • A family history of breast cancer among your parents, siblings or at least two other close relatives
  • A family history of ovarian cancer
  • Multiple cancers within your family
  • A relative diagnosed with breast cancer before menopause
  • A known mutation of any of these genes in your family: BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, PTEN, PALB2, ATM, or CHEK-2
  • An abnormal breast biopsy
  • Prior radiation to the chest as an adolescent or young adult due to Hodgkin's lymphoma
  • A diagnosis of neurofibromatosis, NF-1
