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 parent, 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, such as BRCA1, BRCA2, TP53, or PTEN in your family
  • An abnormal breast biopsy
  • Prior radiation to the chest
