NEW HAVEN — Women at high risk for breast cancer due to family or medical history are the focus of a new program at the Women’s Center for Breast Health at the Hospital of Saint Raphael. Under the initiative, community surgeons active in the care of breast disease are teaming up with Saint Raphael’s physicians to identify and screen women at high risk.


The High-Risk Breast Health Program offers initial counseling, diagnostic testing and education to women with the following risk factors: genetics (two or more breast cancers or male breast cancer in the family); history of ovarian cancer; past atypical biopsy; and/or dense breast tissue.
