Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Tool

Breast Cancer Screening Leads to Early Detection

Did you know that a breast cancer risk assessment tool exists? Research shows that breast cancer screening before symptoms show up often leads to detection and often improved treatment. The Woodlands Institute for Health & Wellness uses BREVAGen, a scientifically validated breast cancer risk assessment tool, that can help you and your doctor detect breast cancer as early as possible. Using BREVAGen, your doctor first determines your individual breast cancer risk profile. Then a personalized breast health plan is developed, outlining the most effective means and timing for monitoring your ongoing breast health.

How is the BREVAGen test performed?

The BREVAGen test consists of two parts. During the first part, you’ll be asked a series of questions to determine your clinical risk of developing the disease. Next, your doctor will swab your cheek to  analyze specific genetic markers in your DNA that can affect your risk of developing breast cancer.

The breast cancer risk assessment information is received from BrevaGen.com and aids your doctor to provide custom information about your risks for breast cancer and the next steps you should take.
