The High Risk Breast Health Program collaborates with your primary care physician, gynecologist, breast surgeon, plastic surgeon, and any needed services at Exeter Hospital such as the Genetics Program, nutrition, nursing and Oncology. Your referring physician will receive information about your mammogram results, including any medical management and follow-up recommendations.
Our program offers a variety of services, such as:
- Personalized risk assessment based on your risk factors as well as family history
- Clinical breast exam
- A personalized surveillance plan
- Counseling on strategies to prevent and reduce your risk of breast cancer such as instruction on breast self-exam and education on other preventive measures and lifestyle changes
- Referral to diagnostic procedures such as digital mammography with state of the art computer aided detection system (CAD), ultrasound, MRI, image guided biopsies including MRI
- Referrals to appropriate services such as genetic counseling, genetic testing, nutrition, gynecology, and plastic surgery
- Access to breast cancer prevention clinical trials
Early detection and accurate diagnosis are important to manage your health effectively. Mammography is not a stand-alone procedure and should be complemented with a clinical breast exam, clinical evaluation of risk, other imaging services, and in some cases a biopsy.
