The High-Risk Breast Cancer Program at CentraState employs the Tyrer-Cuzick risk assessment tool in determining cancer risk. This allows clinicians to get a broader understanding of your individual risk level.
The secure online tool asks a series of questions, such as family history, surgical history, previous cancer diagnoses, hormone/contraceptive use, and age at first period and age at first pregnancy. The lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is then calculated from the patient’s responses. Patients with an increased risk level will be contacted with their results and next steps.
